One of the most promising young filmmakers out there today, Duncan Jones, hasn’t even released his second film yet but he’s already starting to think about the follow-up. After his phenomenal debut film Moon, Jones is about ready to let us all enter the Source Code on April 15 with Jake Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan. And while there had been much talk (and concept art and script reviews) that would suggest Mute would be Jones’ next film, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

In an interview with We Got This Covered, Jones revealed that Mute is in “limbo” and he wants his next film to be his homage to Blade Runner. “It will be a city based future film,” Jones said. Read what happened to Mute and more about this “city based future film” after the jump. Read More »

Source Code UK Trailer

Summit Entertainment has released a UK movie trailer for Source Code, the sophomore feature from Moon director Duncan Jones on Heyuguys. The trailer begins much like the previously released domestic release, but varies a bit along the way and features a bunch of different footage along the way.

The script had high praise in industry circles and has a clever premise, basically a mystery thriller set in a ten minute span of time Groundhog Day-style. Jake Gyllenhall plays a soldier who is part of an experimental program to ferret out the origin of a terrorist attack on a train. His psyche is projected into the body of a passenger on the train, and he relives the attack multiple times as he tries to trace it back to the point of origin. Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright are in the cast as well. The Source Code script has had some revisions done by Billy Ray but was originally written by Ben Ripley.

Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Clint Mansell is one of my favorite film composers working today, and has been since hearing his first work on Darren Aronofsky’s Pi. His incredible score for Requiem for a Dream has been re-purposed in countless trailers and commercials over the years. He has continued to work on Aronofsky’s projects over the years and his Tchaikovsky-inspired score for Black Swan is nothing less than brilliant.

Mansell’s work on Duncan Jones’ feature big screen debut Moon was met with acclaim as well, and I was very excited to hear what Clint had up his sleeves for his second Jones collaboration, on the film Source Code. I had even heard a bit of early music Mansell created for the opening credits while on a visit to the editing room.  But it appears that it was not meant to be. Clint Mansell will not be scoring Source Code after all.
