While promoting Prince of Persia at WonderCon over the weekend, Jake Gyllenhaal mentioned that he is currently filming a science fiction movie called Source Code with Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright and that it is going to “blow our minds.” I don’t know that much else about the film, except that it’s directed by Duncan Jones. But frankly, that’s enough for me.
Jones is the son of David Bowie. Far more pertinently, he directed Moon, a Sam Rockwell-starring head trip of a homage to early ’70s sci-fi and, in my opinion, last year’s most tragically underseen movie (you can check out the trailer after the break). The less you know about Moon before you see it, the more fun you’re going to have — suffice to say that Rockwell very much earns his money, and in more ways than one. If Source Code is anywhere near as good then I’ll be a very happy bunny. (And if it’s even as half as good as the Gyllenhaal-starring, giant bunny-featuring head trip Donnie Darko then I’ll be even happier.)
What about you? Any fans of Moon out there? Or Donnie Darko? Do you agree that Source Code could be mind-blowing material?
