Jake Gyllenhaal claims the movie he is making with Duncan Jones is "mind boggling".

The Brokeback Mountain star is working with the Moon director - son of David Bowie - on new sci-fi thriller Source Code, about a soldier forced to relive a train bombing over and over until he can find out who is responsible and prevent forthcoming terrorist attacks.

Jake told movie blog Aint It Cool: "Duncan is so awesome and he is an extraordinary director - working with him has been that exactly and I think this movie that we are making is mind boggling."

The 29-year-old revealed shooting in Montreal is almost finished.

And he gushed: "I'm telling you man, he is really quite something. His mind... he comes from quite a pedigree, just artistically, but on his own I believe he is the next generation. He is blowing my mind on a daily basis.

"He has collector's edition t-shirts on like, every day, and people come up and they're like, 'Dude, where'd you get that shirt?' He's, 'It's just a shirt, I have no idea'."

Jake went on: "To me, working with him, it's surprising, his instinct, his sense of collaboration, but at the same time truly being an auteur...

"He's the real deal man. Anyone who has seen [Moon] knows that and this - you are really going to like it!"
