‘Source Code’ Writer Hired For ‘Flatliners’ Remake

We saw hints of such audacity in Jones’ debut film Moon, which isn’t nearly as sophisticated and entertaining as his second feature film Source Code, a film that is proof that Jones’ mind barely senses the lifeless characteristics of conventional cinema. Characteristics, to him, that are ever diminishing.
