There will be a day, sometime in the next few years, when all stories concerning Duncan Jones -- the director of 2009's glorious sci-fi throwback Moon -- will get over the fact the guy's name used to be Zowie Bowie. According to a Tweet from Production Weekly, Jones should be getting back in the saddle for pre-production on his next project, Source Code, in early January, with shooting to start in Montreal in March. And if Ben Ripley's script (with revisions by Billy Ray) is any indication, this could very well be the one that really puts Jones into a spotlight that doesn't require references to dear old dad.

With slight nods to 12 Monkeys and Run Lola Run, Source Code centers on a soldier (Jake Gyllenhaal, upgraded from the previously-attached Topher Grace) who awakes on a train to New York. He's sent to stop a terrorist attack as part of a military time-travel program. And really, what more do you need to know? There's a lot to work with in the concept and Jones seems like an excellent choice to helm. It'll definitely be interesting to see how he specifically handles the time-travel aspects, because it'd be great to see something we haven't already seen 1,000 times over. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled as more casting notes get out, so stay tuned.
