THE BUZZ: Duncan Jones keeps the action on Earth for his follow-up to his beloved, near-perfect debut, Moon. Though he's partnered with a major studio and visions of Unstoppable flicker here and there, we sense the story itself will be as focused as Moon's, and perhaps a second exploration of a man working against a manipulated environment. Jake Gyl traveling through time again (a la Donnie Darko's best bits), is definitely not a bad idea after his recent miscues, which haven't turned him into the leading man we were all expecting. Perhaps during one of the attempts to prevent this incident, Michelle Monaghan will appear as a giant rabbit.
