Eiza Gonzalez is calling 9-1-1…
The 30-year-old Mexican actress and singer will star opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in Michael Bay’s action-thriller Ambulance.
Chris Fedak wrote the original script, based on the original Danish Film Ambulancen produced by Nordisk Film Productions.
The logline is being kept under wraps, but insiders say the film is the vein of the great action thrillers of the ’90s like Speed and Bay’s Bad Boys.
The script has been highly coveted for years but never able to lock down a director before Bay got his hands on it and instantly fell in love.
Universal Pictures recently finalized the deal to distribute the film with Endeavor Content handling the packaging of the project.
Production is expected to start in January.
Gonzalez’s 2021 looks to be quite busy as she can be seen next in the thriller I Care A Lot, which also stars Rosamund Pike and Peter Dinklage. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and was picked up by Netflix for a 2021 release.
She also has the tentpole Godzilla vs. Kong, which will bow in 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max day and date.
