Gyllenhaal and Moon's Jones team for Source Code

Acclaimed Moon director Duncan Jones is set to work with Jake Gyllenhaal on the science fiction thriller Source Code for Vendome Pictures.

When the project began life at Universal in 2007, Topher Grace was originally attached to star in Ben Ripley's screenplay, about a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter, and has to live and relive a train bombing until he can work out who caused it. Shane Abbess had been tapped to direct

The latest version of the script has been revised by State of Play's Billy Ray, and will be distributed by Summit Entertainment. Mark Gordon will produce alongside Vendome's Philip Rousselet and Jordan Wynn, with Source Code expected to begin production in spring 2010

Well I hope he actually got a budget for this film.

His Moon film was excellent, I hope this one will be equally as good. The idea is a bit unoriginal so it will be interesting how he will shake it up an put a original twist on it.

Not about the film but it about Vendome Pictures http://www.screendaily.com/rousselet-launches-vendome-pictures-with-115m-credit-facility/4041710.article

from that it seems this film will have a 10-40 million dollar budget. Better than the million he had for his last film.

The Summit Entertainment movie is scheduled to begin production in Vancouver this March.
