Moon is out on dvd and blu-ray right now. You’ve seen it, right? You understand why director Duncan Jones is one to watch? How he managed to pull one of the best performances of last year out of Sam Rockwell and managed to create this completely convincing and fascinating world with a relatively tiny budget?
The director’s followup film Source Code will star Jake Gyllenhaal (as we reported back in November) and THR is now reporting that Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan have joined the cast. Golden Globe nominee Farmiga was last seen being incredible in Up In The Air (although it pains me to tell you that it was a body double during that scene where you heard everyone’s jaw drop in the theater), whereas Monahan was last seen in Eagle Eye, although around here we all love her for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
The film is all about time travel! More specifically it’s about a soldier (Gyllenhaal) who is forced by the government to investigate a terrorist attack. They stick him in the body of a commuter affected by the attack and force him to relive the experience over and over until he can figure out who is responsible. Farmiga plays a communications officer that controls Gyllenhaal as he travels through time and space, and Monaghan is a woman that’s in a relationship with the body Gyllenhaal is inhabiting.
Sound amazing. The film starts shooting in March- more as we hear it!
