Source Code director says Jake is lovely
"Before the screening, the 38-year old Duncan Jones (christened Zowie Bowie) was probably best known, if known at all, for being the son of the rock legend David Bowie and for directing a brilliantly bizarre UK television commercial for oven chips.Sam Rockwell plays Sam Bell in "Moon" (2009), directed by Duncan Jones.
Today, he is preparing for a round of meetings in LA as he crews up in preparation for his next project, a Jake Gyllenhaal (“a very lovely guy”) film called Source Code that was offered to him complete with Hollywood star power, facilities and budget. It’s a giant step for the director, who is cheerfully embracing the Hollywood machine with the good-natured air of confidence he has been nurturing over the past year.
“It’s interesting,” he says, of his first megabucks, all-singing, all-dancing project. “It’s a much bigger budget, it’s a Hollywood film, there are a lot more people involved in the decision-making process. I think my background in advertising is a benefit – I’m somewhere between trying to please everyone else and trying to maintain the integrity of what it is I would like to do as a director. So it’s not too different to doing a commercial, to be honest, but it’s definitely a different beast to Moon.” Source: www.thenational.ae
