Jake Gyllenhaal May or May Not Be Inside You

The Bomb: Jake Gyllenhaal is taking a look at Source Code, a sci-fi thriller about a soldier who wakes up in the body of a commuter whose train is bombed. Gyllenhaal’s character has to relive the bombing until he can figure out who did it. So kind of like Groundhog Day meets Early Edition. [Variety]

Scary Shady: More than seven years have passed since 8 Mile, but Eminem is ready to give acting another try. This time around, the rapper will appear in an eponymous 3-D horror movie, Shady Talez, which will also become a four-part comic book. Come to think of it, the music video for “Stan” was kind of a horror film. [MTV]

Demons: Man on Wire documentary filmmaker James Marsh will try his hand again at directing a feature film. Marsh tried once before with The King starring Gael Garcia Bernal in 2005, but that film flopped pretty hard. Now Marsh is going to give feature directing another shot with The Vatican Tapes, a thriller about an exorcism gone wrong — an inauspicious plotline for a previously failed feature director, no?

The Right to Curb: TV Land and TV Guide Network joined forces to purchase the basic-cable rights to the first seven seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm. The networks are expected to have paid something less than $600,000 per episode. Pretty good. Pretty, pretty good. [HR]

Two for Three: The Disney Channel has ordered a second season of Jonas, the Jonas Brothers’ comedy series. The show will take on new executive producers for season two: director Paul Hoen and showrunner Lester Lewis, who worked as a producer for The Office earlier this year. [HR]
