"-I was fascinated to hear you talking at this film’s press conference that you don’t own a computer. How does that affect your preparation for a role?Sam Rockwell plays James Reston Jr. in "Frost/Nixon" (2008).
-I could definitely use the benefit of a computer for research. For Frost/Nixon I really could have used some of that. But I read, and I watched the news, and I went to D.C., listened to all the tapes and stuff. But maybe it’s good because my character was existing in the ’70s. I’m thinking about getting one, but I’ve resisted the urge so far. It’s might be too much for me to handle right now. There’s a lot on my plate.Sam Rockwell with Duncan Jones shooting "Moon" (2009).
-Do you think that philosophy informed your character’s relationship with technology in Moon?
-It’s possible. My relationship with technology and robots comes from all the science-fiction movies that I’ve seen. That is a very grass-roots sort of guy; a very blue-collar guy. But I played a computer genius in Charlie’s Angels. I don’t know. At some point I’m going to have to pick it up." Source: www.movieline.com

After being attached to a finger-full of projects since his Sundance launch pad, the helmer has signed onto direct the 2007 Black List script (high on that list and tops on ScriptShadow's recent poll) with Jake Gyllenhaal in the running to topline the pic. Originally written by Ben Ripley, Source Code got a revision from Billy Ray (this writer-director has his DNA on tons of screenplays) and it basically looks at an experimental government program set up to investigate a terrorist incident, when a soldier wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter and is forced to live and relive a harrowing train bombing until he can determine who is responsible for it. In short we are looking at Groundhog Day in space". Source: www.ioncinema.com
