Variety reports that a sequel is in the works for the sci-fi time travel thriller Source Code. The Mark Gordon Company and Vendome Pictures have reportedly tapped Anna Foerster (Outlander) to direct the film. The original film’s screenwriter, Ben Ripley, is attached to return to write the script.
The original film starred Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier who has his consciousness sent back in time over and over again in order to prevent a terrible disaster. After the release of the first film, there was talk of continuing the story for Source Code with a TV series. However, the original film’s director, Duncan Jones, said he would not be involved with the TV show.
Mark Gordon and Philippe Rousselet are producing the sequel. Michele Wolkoff and Drew Simon will oversee the project for the Mark Gordon Company. Vendome Pictures will have Guy Fabrice Gianfermi, and Guy Stodel will oversee the film.
