Awards season is gearing up with the BAFTAs taking place on 12th of February, the Academy Awards on February the 26th and more besides. All you voters out there will be working your way through screeners and assorted for your consideration material, so I thought I’d take a moment to pop up a reminder of Duncan Jones second feature Source Code.
“very talented young guy called Chris Bacon, who was recommended by my editor, the legendary Paul Hirsch.”
Sad to see Clint won’t be working on Source Code now, after a stunning first collaboration with Duncan on MOON, but with such a glowing recommendation, and trust in Duncan’s descision to go with Chris, I’m confident we’re on track for something special.
As you will see from Chris’s IMDB entry, he has a wealth of experience working on some very high profile projects such as King Kong (2005), Blood Diamond (2006), I Am Legend (2007) and The Dark Knight (2008) and as main composer of 10 films including the Disney documentary Waking Sleeping Beauty (2009), Alpha and Omega (2010) and Gnomeo and Juliet (2011)
We’ve been lucky enough to feature some of photographer Rodene Ronquillo‘s photographs of Whistle / MOON / Source Code Director Duncan Jones here on the Man Made Movies blog a few times, so it’s great to see even more of Rodene’s work now available on her new online portfolio.
Split into four diverse categories displaying a wide range of subjects, it’s well worth popping over and having a good mooch, you may even bump into the odd bod you know, with faces including our Mr. Jones, the lovely Kat Dennings, and legendary film editor Paul Hirsch
Great stuff, Ro. Look forward to seeing more soon. Now if you’ll excuse me, after looking at those food pics, I think it’s snack time, I’m off to get Gerty to warm up some beans.
The October issue of Empire magazine dates release for Duncan Jones 2nd feature ‘Source Code’ as March 11th 2011.
Featured in the magazine’s list of the ’10 Movies We Want to See Right Now’ Duncan tells Empire when comparing casts on MOON & Source Code.
It was just me & Sam Rockwell and half a day with Kevin Spacey. On this one I’ve got four really talented actors – Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright. It’s a new test, a new experience…
Although still playing his cards close to his chest with regards details (as mentioned in our previous interview when questioned on promotion) Duncan does reveal that Coulter Stevens, played by Gyllenhaal is…
a military man who wakes up on a train not knowing how he got there. Before he gets a chance to work it out, things change in such a dramatic way, he doesn’t know whether the train is real or not.
Duncan goes on to talk about adding humour to the script, and again on the incredible experience of working with legendary editor Paul Hirsch.
With World Cup 2010 almost upon us, ever the Brit abroad, Duncan is also working on making sure the edit continues whilst watching Englands progress through the tournament, by shifting the edit suite to Ye Olde Kings Head pub in Santa Monica, suitably dressed of course.
Also this week, IGN featured Jake Gyllenhaal where he again exudes enthusiasm when talking of working with Duncan, and talking about ‘Source Code’. Also urges people to see MOON, well done that man 🙂
