American actor Jake Gyllenhaal arrived in the province this week ready for four weeks of filming in the province.

The Hollywood star, who was nominated for an Oscar for his role in ‘Brokeback Mountain’ in 2006, is starring in a new western called ‘The Sisters Brothers’ alongside Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly, both of whom arrived last week.
