Gyllenhaal goes straight to ‘Source’

Actor in negotiations for sci-fi thriller

Jake Gyllenhaal is in negotiations to star in sci-fi thriller “Source Code” for Vendome Pictures and the Mark Gordon Co.

Duncan Jones will direct and Mark Gordon will produce with Vendome’s CEO Philippe Rousselet and Jordan Wynn. Production is slated to begin during the first quarter.

Summit Entertainment will distribute the

film in the U.S. Summit International is also handling international sales, which began at the American Film Market with more than 15 territories licensed.

Source Code” centers on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter and is forced to live and relive a harrowing train bombing until he can determine who is responsible for it.

Project had originally been set up at Universal in early 2007 when the studio bought Ben Ripley’s screenplay and attached Topher Grace to star. Universal tapped Shane Abbess to helm last year. Current script includes revises by Billy Ray (“State of Play”).

“Source Code” will launch the Vendome slate, according to Rousselet, who said the project exemplifies the types of producers and filmmakers with whom Vendome plans to work. He and co-CEO Fabrice Gianfermi plan to produce a minimum of a dozen films over the next five years.

Gyllenhaal is currently filming “Love and Other Drugs,” helmed by Ed Zwick, and will next be seen in Jim Sheridan’s “Brothers” and Disney’s “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.”

Jones is currently writing the screenplay of the upcoming film “Mute,” which he will also direct. He has previously directed “Moon,” starring Sam Rockwell.
