Director Duncan Jones will be doing for a follow-up to his excellent film Moon. It will be a new thriller titled ‘Source Code’. Also attached to the film is Jake Gyllenhaal.
Source Code is about a soldier named Colter (Gyllenhaal) who awakens on a passenger train in another man’s body with no idea how he got there. He begins to explore his surroundings and finds a bomb… which blows up, killing him and everyone else on board. After the explosion Colter awakens in darkness, strapped to a harness with a monitor in front of him. He discovers that he’s part of a mission of sorts attempting to stop those responsible for the train bombing before they can strike again. With little else to go on Colter is sent back to the train seventeen minutes before the explosion. He’ll be sent back again and again,always for seventeen minutes, each time bringing him closer to the bomber(s) and closer to a truth about himself.
Jones has confirmed the report via Twitter states that production will begin sometime early next year. They also report that the film, which will be distributed by Summit Entertainment, was originally with Universal with Topher Grace attached to star.
