2011 SXSW Kicks Off With ‘Source Code’

Thursday, December 16 by

Jake Gyllenhaal doesn't take notes.

Duncan Jones‘s second feature, Source Code, will open the 2011 South by Southwest (SXSW if you’re cool) Film Festival in Austin, TX on March 11. Film Conference and Festival Producer Janet Pierson had this to say in a press release:

“We are delighted to welcome Duncan Jones back to SXSW. His debut Moon showed an intelligence, skill, and exceptional use of limited resources that’s exactly the kind of filmmaking we love to support,” said Film Conference and Festival Producer Janet Pierson. “Source Code is a terrific follow-up; it’s a smart, suspenseful thriller, and a perfect fit for our 2011 Opening Night!”

In the film, Jake Gyllenhaal is inserted into an operation to stop a train from crashing that’s almost as difficult as remembering how to spell his last name. It also stars Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, and Jeffrey Wright. You’re an amazing actor, Jeffrey, but you’re bringing down the sexy meter. Let Vera say your lines.
