SOURCE CODE Getting TV Adaptation

TV adaptation of sci-fi thriller in the works.

THR reports that producer Mark Gordon is developing a TV adaptation of Duncan Jones’ sci-fi action thriller ‘Source Code’ for American TV network CBS.

In the movie Jake Gyllenhaal starred as a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.

The series will take the form of a procedural drama that follows “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.”

Gordon (‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Criminal Minds’) will produce the series with Philippe Rousselet (‘Source Code’) serving as a consulting producer. Steve Maeda (‘Lie to Me,’ ‘Lost’) is on board to pen the series.

Apparently no one informed ‘Source Code’ director Duncan Jones about the project, when asked about the adaptation via Twitter, Jones replied:

“For those asking, I know not a sausage about the Source Code TV show. First time I heard about it was about 20 minutes ago… on twitter!”

“Wishing the Source Code TV show the best of Irish. Im gonna keep on trucking with film number 3. ;)”
