Jake Gyllenhaal May Star in Thriller Source Code

Jake Gyllenhaal May Be Thrilling Audiences With Source Code

It seems so long since we've seen Jake Gyllenhaal on screen (2007 in Rendition, to be exact), so I'm glad that we're about to get a lot more of him. Next month we'll catch him in Brothers, then in the Spring all buffed up in Prince of Persia — and he won't be slowing down. Gyllenhaal is in talks to star in the sci-fi thriller Source Code.

The geeky-titled flick is about a soldier (ostensibly played by Gyllenhaal) who "wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter and is forced to live and relive a harrowing train bombing until he can determine who is responsible for it." These days it seems like Gyllenhaal is balancing his more emotional roles (like in Brothers) with some aggressive action flicks. I don't mind — whatever the genre, I'm just happy to welcome him back to the theater.

i'm not a big fan of Jake Gyllenhaal. But I saw the preview for Brothers and it looks great. I can't wait to see it.
