Jake Gyllenhaal was attached to sci-fi script Source Code when he saw Duncan Jones' $5 million space drama Moon, starring Sam Rockwell in a multi-layered performance. He thought Jones was perfectly suited to direct Source Code, which played well as the SXSW Film Fest opener Friday night. Summit will release it April 1.

My flip cam interview with Jones and Gyllenhaal is below. They were buzzing about a recent encounter with SXSW attendee Paul Reubens (who co-starred with Gyllenhaal in the unfinished David O. Russell film Nailed, which screened recently); in the persona of Pee Wee Herman, he explained the Source Code as well as anyone could, they say (see his explanation below, as well as Gyllenhaal's explanation of Pee Wee Herman's Broadway show).
