Jones has a new movie expected to hit next spring, called Source Code. The trailer is online, and it looks like an insanely mindblowing sci-fi thriller.
It’s The Matrix meets meets Groundhog Day by way of Quantum Leap as Jake Gyllenaal keeps jacking in to relive the eight minutes leading up to a train bombing in Chicago over and over until he figures out the culprit before a repeat bombing happens elsewhere. If that weren’t enough, Source Code boasts a hell of a supporting cast: Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright.
Duncan Jones has another sci-fi flick in the works: the Blade Runner-esque Mute, which takes place in the same universe as Moon. There are so few good sci-fi films out these days, so I’m pleased to see that Jones is trying to fix that.
