Following up the critical (if not commercial) success of the award-winning film Moon, director Duncan Jones has teamed up with Jake Gyllenhaal to make the scifi thriller, Source Code.
Gyllenhaal stars as Captain Colter Stevens, a decorated soldier who wakes up to find himself in the body of another man who is doomed to die in a coming explosion. After experiencing the death of the man whose body he was using, Stevens discovers that he is part of a government experiment called “Source Code”, that can send him back in time to relive the last eight minutes of a person’s life. Stevens must then experience the same devastating incident over and over again in order to learn as much as possible to prevent a much worse attack on Chicago.
Joining Gyllenhaal are Michelle Monaghan (Due Date, Eagle Eye), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), and Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace, W.) Source Code hits theaters on April 15, 2011.
