Remember last spring's sci-fi thriller Source Code? Hope you enjoyed it, because you'll be getting more—on the small screen.
The Hollywood Reporter says that ABC Studios and producer Mark Gordon are developing a TV series based on the movie. The film starred Jake Gyllenhaal as an Army helicopter pilot who takes part in an experiment through which he inhabits the consciousness of a man on a train for the last eight minutes of the man's life, to try and find out who planted a bomb on the train.
The TV version will follow three former federal agents who use the same "source code" technology to insert themselves into the consciousness of different dead people each week, presumably to head off more terrorist attacks and other catastrophes.
There's no word on whether the show will examine the issues brought up by the film's ending, in which (*spoilers ahead!*) Gyllenhaal's Capt. Colter Stevens created an alternate timeline by changing events on the train. Now you're talking Fringe territory ...
Although ABC Studios is behind the show, it was sold to CBS, so hopefully we'll see it on that network sometime next fall.
Would you like to see a Source Code TV series, or was the movie enough?
