Source Code 2 has got the green light but will be going ahead without original star Jake Gyllenhaal and director Duncan Jones.
Anna Foerster signed on to direct the follow-up to the science fiction thriller. 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 original stared Gyllenhaal as a soldier sent back to relive the same eight minutes of time repeatedly in the hope of preventing a train explosion.
Original director Duncan Jones will not be returning as he is deep in production on the highly anticipated Warcraft.
Source Code was rumoured to be going ahead as a TV series but now will be a straight sequel. Ben Ripley who wrote the original is returning to script the sequel.
