While Monday and Tuesday were rather slow news days, respectively, it looks like today has more than made up for it. 

First off, according to Box Office Mojo, Duncan Jones’ upcoming follow-up to his critical hit film, MOON, a film known as SOURCE CODE, will hit theaters stateside on April 15, 2011, following a March 11 release in the UK. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan, and Jeffrey Wright, and follows a soldier who must stop a terrorist attack by going back in time to prevent it. We got our first, if brief, look at the film last week, but at this point all we are going on is a fantastic script, which people seem to forget was penned by Ben Ripley, and one hell of a cast. Jones is a great director, so honestly, April couldn’t get here fast enough. Continue reading, after the jump.

In other, less interesting, and possibly more telling, release date news, The Playlist is reporting that Paul W.S. Anderson’s THE THREE MUSKETEERS has been pushed back from April 15, 2011, to October 14, 2011. We got our first look at the film a few weeks back, and it looks utterly ridiculous, in the most uninteresting way. Apparently we aren’t the only ones who think that this film has garbage written all over it.

Finally, MTV has a few new details on a new film, based on a pitch from writer Matt Hubbard, that will star both Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari. The film will be penned by Harris Wittels, and according to the McBride, will follow “this Olympic athlete who comes back to his hometown and he bangs mine and Aziz’s girlfriends. So we go on a mission to destroy his Olympic life.” It will also be called OLYMPIC SIZED ASSHOLE. It sounds great in my book, but really, I’ll see anything with these two actors in it, so I can’t wait for this thing.
