2011's Jake Gyllenhaal-starring SOURCE CODE was a taut and intelligently-written sci-fi tale from director Duncan Jones (MOON), and now it looks like a sequel is coming our way from The Mark Gordon Company and Vendome Pictures, according to Variety.

The original film's screenwriter Ben Ripley is back to work on this new installment, but don't expect Gyllenhaal or Duncan to return. Instead, directing duties have gone to Anna Foerster, who has worked as second unit director on the films 10,000 B.C. and THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW as well as helming episodes of "Criminal Minds" and "Army Wives".

The original SOURCE CODE was a respectable performer at the box office in 2011, earning $54 million domestically and $147 million worldwide on an estimated $30 million budget for Summit. No distributor or actor is currently attached to SOURCE CODE 2.

Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan and Jeffrey Wright co-starred in the original film, set on a Chicago commuter train in which Gyllenhaal’s character experienced the last eight minutes of another person’s life within an alternative timeline.

No plot details have been revealed for SOURCE CODE 2, but I'm sure it will utilize the original film's concept of repeating the same eight minutes of a dangerous situation, albeit with some kind of new twist.

Mark Gordon will produce alongside Vendome’s Philippe Rousselet. Michele Wolkoff and Drew Simon will oversee the project for the Mark Gordon Company, with Guy Stodel and Fabrice Gianfermi overseeing for Vendome.
