'Source Code' to be Reborn as a TV Show

'Source Code' to be Reborn as a TV Show

Sep 15, 2011

Source CodeIn unexpected but not entirely inexplicable news (it's an easy fit), the Duncan Jones-directed sci-fi thriller Source Code is set to be remade as a weekly drama for CBS.  Mark Gordon, a producer on the film, is the man ushering the project along, which isn't entirely new territory for him considering he's been involved with high profile TV in the past like Grey's Anatomy and Criminal Minds.  

The Hollywoord Reporter tells us the show, whose pilot will be written by Steve Maeda (a writer on the Tim Roth series Lie to Me), will be about, "three former federal agents who are part of a top-secret program. Each week, they'll use "Source Code" technology to jump into the consciousness of people involved in tragic events."  

Who will be replacing Jake Gyllenhaal as the soldier that is subjected to the code is entirely in the air right now.  In fact, the project is so new, Duncan Jones had no idea it even existed.
