Clint Mansell is Scoring Duncan Jones' New Film 'Source Code'
Finally, some fantastic news to report today! British director Duncan Jones, who broke out onto the geek scene last year with his brilliant sci-fi flick Moon, is currently finishing his second feature - Source Code. It's a sci-fi thriller with a time travel-esque twist (I've read the script - it's great) and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan and Vera Farmiga. A very crap quality early photo hit the web a few weeks ago but we haven't heard much else about it. However, Jones just tweeted today that composer Clint Mansell (of Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain) will be collaborating with Jones again after Moon to score this film.
I had the rare opportunity to meet Mansell in Telluride a few weeks back and he's as cool as you'd imagine for someone who came up with the brilliant scores for Requiem for a Dream and The Fountain (two of my all-time faves). I'm excited for Source Code, not only as Jones' follow-up to Moon, but because it's a great script and Gyllenhaal should be a perfect lead. Summit Entertainment is bringing Source Code to theaters on April 15th next spring, so stay tuned for more. We don't know when the first trailer will hit, but I'd be more than happy to wait for Mansell to come up with some music for that as well. Stay tuned for updates!
