Jake Gyllenhaal scuffle overshadows “Source” – SXSW


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The world premiere of Duncan Jones’ “Source Code,” which kicked off this years’ South By Southwest film portion on Friday night, is being overshadowed by a strange story involving Jake Gyllenhaal, a camera, and a men’s room.

Twitter exploded with accounts of a scuffle between Gyllenhaal, who plays a soldier in Jones’ sci-fi thriller, and a guy who tried to take his photograph … er, mid-stream.

“Gyllenhaal apparently grabbed the dude mid-photo, threw him against the wall and was like, ‘are we really gonna do this right now?’” Tweeted Cinematical’s Erik Davis.

And JoBlo, who reportedly was in the men’s room when the “fight” occurred, updated, “Guy just tried to take Jake Gyllenhaal’s picture while he was taking a leak. Cops came. Brouhaha ensued.”

So fists are flying in Austin as SXSW gets underway. I’ll have a full review of “Source Code” on the site soon, but it’s a twisty little mystery about a bomb on a train that suffers a happy ending it never earns. Still, worth a glance when it opens on April 1.

Other films getting great buzz out of SXSW on Friday are James Wan’s ghost story “Insidious,” Susanne Bier’s Oscar-winning “In a Better Place,” and the cult film “Sound of My Voice,” which burst out of Sundance on a wave of positive reviews and just continues to collect raves.

More on SXSW as the fest continues.
