Shane Abbess Cracks Source Code

ON

Universal has hired Shane Abbess to direct Source Code, a sci-fi thriller that Mark Gordon’s production company is producing for the studio, reports Variety.

The Australian helmer made Gabriel, his first movie, for less than $200,000. Screen Gems picked up the gothic sci-fi thriller, which made $1.2 million in his native country.

Source Code, a time continuum story, was written by Ben Ripley and once had Topher Grace to star.
