Clint Mansell fans didn't have to decipher any hidden messages to feel Duncan Jones' enthusiasm in message he posted about "Source Code" yesterday. As was revealed in Twitter-Wood, the "Moon" soundtrack composer and director will team up once more to work on Jones' film about a soldier (Jake Gyllenhaal) who wakes up in the body of a commuter and has to solve the mystery behind a train explosion.
"Have a bloody fantastic bit of 'Source Code' news," Jones wrote on his Twitter account. "Super star Clint Mansell WILL be scoring the film. You have no idea how relieved I am."
Mansell earned a lot of great critical attention for "Moon," just as he did on "Requiem for a Dream" and Darren Aronofsky's "The Fountain." Coming along for Jones' sophomore full-length effort, Mansell should be a welcome asset to the project, which also has Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan in its cast.
Slated to be out April 15, 2011, a date that Jones sort of confirmed in another tweet, the film will have an action-oriented portion and another part or dimension that's "static," according to Farmiga.
If it's anywhere near the psychological game that "Moon" was (and safe bets say that it will be), you can be sure that Mansell's flair for the bizarre and tense in his music will be well matched to bring out Jones' vision — even if it doesn't have a robot voiced by Kevin Spacey.
