Duncan Jones' Source Code could become a TV series
For his sophomore feature SOURCE CODE, director Duncan Jones delivered satisfying cerebral thrills and a premise that has apparently been deemed solid enough to carry a weekly TV show.
The movie's producer Mark Gordon is bringing the braintrip to CBS as a weekly action/procedural show using the core idea of the film, parts GROUNDHOG DAY, "Quantum Leap", DEJA VU and "Seven Days" (I can't be the only one who watched that).
The series will follow "three former federal agents who are part of a top-secret program. Each week, they'll use Source Code technology to jump into the consciousness of people involved in tragic events."
The original SOURCE CODE synopsis, in case your reality deviated into one where you didn't see the movie: When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he's part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he's ever known, he learns he's part of a government experiment called the "Source Code," a program that enables him to cross over into another man's identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack.
