It’s a big week for Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, and Jean-Marc Vallée. Not only are all three premiering films at the Toronto International Film Festival, but on Thursday it was announced the trip plan to work together on the upcoming feature film ‘Demolition’.

Few details about ‘Demolition’ are available, but according to Entertainment Weekly, it “tells the story of an investment banker- presumably Gyllenhaal’s character- who is still grieving over the loss of his wife, only to meet a new woman who will change his life.”

Bryan Sipe wrote the script, and ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ helmer, Vallée, will direct.

Vallée’s ‘Wild’ starring Reese Witherspoon is set to premiere at TIFF this week, while Gyllenhaal’s film ‘Nightcrawler’ and Watts’ ‘While We’re Young’ and ‘St. Vincent’ will also be premiering during the Toronto-based festival.
