Gyllenhaal withdrew from the off-Broadway production in February because of scheduling conflicts.
The revival is also set to star Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ewan McGregor, both making their Broadway debuts.
Gyllenhaal was announced to star in the leading role, but has since departed.
Gyllenhaal will star opposite film star Ewan McGregor in the Tom Stoppard revival.
You know you want to meet the stars.
