    This was the first script Duncan Jones wrote, and supposedly it’s in the same univers as Moon. At least that was the original plan.

    i'm a big fan of Moon (but that's about it); at the moment, this looks intriguing, and also like its reach is going to exceed its grasp majorly. setting up a believable cyberpunk world and introducing tons of meaningful stakes over the course of ~2 hours including numerous identifiable, fleshed out characters is difficult, and this looks like it may almost be better suited for a miniseries. i'm also immediately skeptical of anything Duncan Jones does with romance after Source Code's icky ending tbh.

    but, this is all conjecture. at the moment, i'm hesitantly curious. its immediate connection (in at least spirit) to Moon is a good sign.

    What was icky about Source Codes ending? I haven’t seen it for a long time

    as i recall, jake gyllenhaal takes over the body and being of his target, without michelle monaghan realizing her partner has undergone a fundamental identity shift. i could be misremembering details of the romance michelle and jake's "host" were involved, and i'm sure the whole thing gets handwaved by parallel universing, but it was a really kinda gross conclusion when i thought on it iirc.
