'Source Code 2' Coming But No Duncan Jones or Jake Gyllnehaal
A few years ago, there was talk of turning the Groundhog Day style sci-fi thriller Source Code into a TV series. However, those plans haven't solidified, and now it sounds like the property will head to the big screen again. Variety reports Source Code 2 is in development with The Mark Gordon Company and Vendome Pictures producing the project again, and the original film's screenwriter Ben Ripley back working on the script. However, don't expect to see Jake Gyllenhaal or any of the original cast to return, and the same goes for director Duncan Jones, who is pretty busy in post-production on Warcraft now.
Taking on directing duties this time will be Anna Forester, who has worked as second unit director on the films 10,000 B.C. and The Day After Tomorrow. On the small screen, she's been at the helm of episodes of "Criminal Minds" and "Army Wives," so she's ready to make a splash on the big screen. Unfortunately, at this point that's all we know about the project, which currently doesn't have a distributor or any actors attached. Though we don't know the plot, surely it will still utilize the concept of repeating the same eight minutes in a given situation where some kind of disaster needs to be undone just the right way. Stay tuned.

Yeah, I'm not going to watch that because I like it as a stand alone film.

FIrst one was very good SciFi, this seems more than unnecessary.

Terrible idea, I hope this never happens. The first one was fantastic and without the creative minds involved who created it, it will fail.
