The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog broke the news this morning saying:
“Golden Globe nominee Vera Farmiga is in negotiations and Michelle Monaghan is set to star opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in Vendome Pictures and the Mark Gordon Co.’s time-travel thriller “Source Code.”
“Duncan Jones (“Moon”) is directing the picture, which centers on a soldier (Gyllenhaal) who, as part of an experimental government program to investigate a terrorist incident, finds himself in the body of an unknown commuter living and reliving a harrowing train bombing until he can find out who is responsible for it.
Farmiga will play a hands-on communications officer controlling Gyllenhaal as he travels through time and space. Monaghan is a woman on the train with whom the man is involved romantically.”
‘Source Code is currently in pre-production, getting ready to begin filming in Canada in March 2010, mainly in Montreal, but will also shift production to Ottawa for about 4 days to film on location at the Ottawa Train Station details of which were revealed in the Ottawa Citizen:
The Ottawa train station will figure prominently in the movie and was largely chosen because the architecture of the building has a “modern, futuristic” look to it. A production crew totalling more than 150 people may come to the city for at least four days of shooting in late March.
