Jake Gyllenhaal is playing gay once again for Netflix’s upcoming horror film, Velvet Buzzsaw.

The American actor will play a snobby art critic who starts to experience supernatural events which are related to the work of a dead artist.

He stars alongside Rene Russo, Toni Collette, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, Natalia Dyer, Daveed Diggs and John Malkovich.

Velvet Buzzsaw is directed by Dan Gilroy, who previously collaborated with Gyllenhaal and Russo on the critically-acclaimed thriller film, Nightcrawler.

In the film, Gyllenhaal will reportedly have a sex scene with another man.
