Anna Foerster to Helm 'Source Code' Sequel

Variety reports that a sequel to 2011's Source Code is currently in development, with Anna Foerster attached to direct. The Mark Gordon Company and Vendome Pictures will produce the film, with screenwriter Ben Ripley returning to pen the sequel.

Foerster's most recent directing credit is the Starz television series Outlander, but has served as second unit director on 10,000 B.C. and The Day After Tomorrow, as well as a director of photography on Independence Day and more.

The original Source Code starred Jake Gyllenhaal as a U.S. Army pilot attempting to stop a dirty bomb from hitting downtown Chicago through the aid of a "Source Code" experimental device that allows him to experience the last eight minutes of another compatible person's life in an alternate timeline. Directed by Duncan Jones, the film also starred Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright.

No further details were revealed about the sequel, including story or whether any of the original cast might return for another film.
