Ask any movie buffs about “Source Code” and most of them would most probably tell you how epic it was, instead of explaining the actual definition of source code. In fact, they will probably tell you how this film was beautifully presented by director Duncan Jones, who is also David Bowie’s son.
The 2011 time travel thriller film was a critically acclaimed film directed by Duncan Jones after he made his directorial debut through 2009’s “Moon”. The film tells the story of a soldier, Colter Stevens (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) who becomes involved with an experimental government program to find the bomber of a commuter train. However, the mission only lasted for 8 minutes and he hasdless than 6 hours to prevent the next bombing.
So, what happened at the end of “Source Code”? Well, you’ll need to watch twice or get your mind blown away by fans’ interpretations.
As various parallel universes were created in “Source Code”, Variety is now reporting that a sequel of the film is currently in the works, with Anna Foerster attached to direct. The sequel will be Foerster’s feature directorial debut, based on a screenplay written by “Source Code” screenwriter Ben Ripley. Foerster previously served as director of photography or second unit director for Gordon-produced films including “White House Down”, “10,000 B.C.”, “Independence Day”, and “The Day After Tomorrow”. Her credits also include “Criminal Minds”, “Army Wives”, and “Outlander”.
Although Duncan Jones will not return to produce nor direct the film, he is currently attached to direct the film adaptation of video game series, “Warcraft.” Jake Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan and other original cast members might not return to the film as no distributor or actor is attached to the sequel.
No further details were given about the sequel but it is definitely a highly-anticipated sequel and set to be the next film that will blow viewers’ minds.
