‘Source Code’ Sequel in the Works (EXCLUSIVE)

Source Code 2” is ramping up development, with Anna Foerster signed on to direct the follow-up to the science fiction thriller, sources confirm.

The Mark Gordon Company and Vendome Pictures are returning to produce, with Vendome again financing the project. “Source Code” screenwriter Ben Ripley is back to write the script for the new installment.

The original “Source Code,” which starred Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by Duncan Jones, was a respectable performer at the box office in 2011, earning $54 million domestically and $147 million worldwide on an estimated $30 million budget for Summit. No distributor or actor is currently attached to “Source Code 2.”

Gordon will produce alongside Vendome’s Philippe Rousselet. Michele Wolkoff and Drew Simon will oversee the project for the Mark Gordon Company, with Guy Stodel and Fabrice Gianfermi overseeing for Vendome.

Foerster first collaborated with Gordon when she served as the second unit director on the Gordon-produced films “10,000 B.C.” and “The Day After Tomorrow.” Gordon then hired Foerster to direct several episodes of “Criminal Minds” and “Army Wives,” on both of which he serves as an executive producer.

Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan and Jeffrey Wright co-starred in the original film, set on a Chicago commuter train in which Gyllenhaal’s character experienced the last eight minutes of another person’s life within an alternative timeline.

Foerster’s credits include the Starz cable series “Outlander.” She’s a longtime collaborator with Roland Emmerich as a director of photography on “White House Down,” “Anonymous,” “10,000 B.C.,” “The Day After Tomorrow” and “Independence Day” on the visual effects camera unit.

The Mark Gordon Co. is in production on TV series including “Grey’s Anatomy” (ABC), “Criminal Minds” (CBS), “Ray Donovan” (Showtime) and its most recent project, “Benched,” a courtroom comedy for USA Network.

Gordon’s film credits include “Saving Private Ryan,” “Day After Tomorrow,” “Speed,” “The Patriot” and “Wonder Boys.” He’s also developing “Jobs” for Universal, “Arms and the Dudes” for Warners and is partnered with FilmNation on Berlin Wall drama “The Tunnels” with Paul Greengrass directing. 

Foerster is repped by the Gersh Agency.
