Jake Gyllenhaal Finds the Source Code


Jake Gyllenhaal is in negotiations to star in sci-fi thriller Source Code for Vendome Pictures and The Mark Gordon Co., reports Variety.

Duncan Jones (Moon) will direct and Mark Gordon will produce with Vendome’s CEO Philippe Rousselet and Jordan Wynn. The Summit Entertainment release is scheduled to begin filming during the first quarter of 2010. Jones has stated that his planned follow up to Moon, the futuristic Berlin-based sci-fi film Mute, has been put on hold for him to develop this project as his next film.

Source Code centers on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter and is forced to live and relive a harrowing train bombing until he can determine who is responsible for it.

Gyllenhaal is currently filming Love and Other Drugs and can next be seen in Brothers and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. (Look for our interview with Gyllenhaal from the set later this week.)
