The Mark Gordon Company and Vendome Pictures are teaming up once again for Source Code 2, a follow-up to director Duncan Jones' 2011 sci-fi thriller Source Code. It isn't clear if Duncan Jones or star Jake Gyllenhaal will be involved, but, at this point, the project doesn't have a distributor or any cast members attached. Anna Foerster has signed on to direct, from a script by original Source Code writer Ben Ripley.
No story details have been released at this point. Jake Gyllenhaal starred in Source Code as Colter Stevens, a soldier who wakes up in someone else's body. He realizes he's part of an experiment where he only has 8 minutes to find and dismantle a bomb on a commuter train. Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright and Russell Peters co-starred in the thriller, which earned $54 million at the domestic box office and $147 million worldwide, from an estimated $30 million production budget. Back in September 2011, we reported that Mark Gordon was setting up a Source Code TV series at CBS, although it never moved forward.
Mark Gordon will produce the sequel alongside Vendome's Philippe Rousselet. Michele Wolkoff and Drew Simon are overseeing the sequel for The Mark Gordon Company, with Guy Stodel and Fabrice Gianfermi overseeing for Vendome. Anna Foerster first collaborated with Mark Gordon as the second unit director on The Day After Tomorrow and 10,000 B.C.. She has also directed several episodes of his shows Criminal Minds and Army Wives. Most recently, she has directed two episodes of the Starz series Outlander.
