More news! On the day that we get our first glimpse of the very sexy, fleshy, pillowy and perky poster for Love and Other Drugs, we now have the first piece of real news about Source Code, the next film for Jake Gyllenhaal. We get our first official picture and A Date. Source Code will be released on 11 March 2011. Because this is on Empire magazine's list of the '10 Movies We Want to See Right Now', I'm assuming this is a UK date. So, we have the summer sun of PoP, the winter heat of Love and Other Drugs and now Spring awaits with Source Code. Fabulous!
The magazine includes a brief interview with director Duncan Jones: 'On this one I've got four really talented actors - Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright. It's a new test, a new experience...' compared to the previous Moon. We hear that it was Jake 'who pushed him to board the sci-fi thriller' and, of the plot, Duncan says Jake plays 'a military man who wakes up on a train not knowing how he got there. Before he gets a chance to work it out, things change in such a dramatic way, he doesn't know whether the train's real or not... When it was brought to me it was serious, quite cerebral, dark and depressing, My take was, "This could actually be quite fun..."' Especially with Jake on board 'He's a funny guy'.
Also, it's great to see full-page ads for the imminent Prince of Persia DVD and Blu-ray release. Although Empire's review is less pleasing. I've included it below so we can wave sticks at it. It has a very pleasant picture which serves well in its purpose to distract from the words.
I'm also more than ready to look at this again, just in case anyone missed it in this morning's post. many thanks to Melsbells!
I'm having some technical difficulty uploading my secret mission videos of Duncan's Q&A from Tuesday night. So far one video has processed properly and I thought I'd include it here. The rest will follow, either here or at MovieBrit, and they're wonderful (Duncan Jones and his team, not the videos).
You can see all of the Duncan Jones Q&A here! It's well worth a listen. No wonder Jake loves this guy!
