Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to star in the Duncan Jones-directed sci-fi thriller Source Code for Vendome Pictures and The Mark Gordon Co.

According to Variety, Source Code centers on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter and is forced to live and relive a harrowing train bombing until he can determine who is responsible for it.

Source Code had originally been set up at Universal in early 2007 when the studio bought Ben Ripley's screenplay and attached Topher Grace to star. Universal tapped Shane Abbess to direct last year. The current script includes revises by Billy Ray (State of Play).

Production will begin early 2010.
