Michelle Monaghan & Vera Farmiga Join 'Source Code' Cast

Michelle Monaghan & Vera Farmiga

I wasn't expecting to see this casting. The very talented Vera Farmiga and the very beautiful Michelle Monaghan have joined the cast of the upcoming time-travel thriller Source Code. The script was written by Billy Ray and Ben Ripley and it's being directed by Duncan Jones, the British filmmaker who debuted last year with Moon. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a soldier who, as part of an experimental government program to investigate a terrorist incident, finds himself in the body of a commuter living and reliving a harrowing train bombing until he can find out who is responsible for it. Monaghan plays a girl he meets on the train.

Farmiga will play a "hands-on communications officer" controlling Gyllenhaal as he travels through time and space. Wow, that was an exhausting description (thanks THR)! I've read the script and it's pretty damn good, so I am looking forward to it, I'm just not keen on the casting. Farmiga's character, I believe, was male in the script I read. And Monaghan's character was a lot younger - Kat Dennings would've been perfect for that role, but it looks like they tried to match Gyllenhaal's age. I guess it doesn't matter, as they're both two of the most talented actresses anyway. We'll let you know who else gets cast as pre-production continues.

Maybe Ben Kinsgley? "Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley is believed to be in the cast, although the producers would not confirm it."

Any high budget movie that has something to do with time travel is a winner in my book.
