Duncan Jones’ ‘Mute’ To Start Filming Next Week
  |  @   |  

Long before Duncan Jones got the gig to direct the blockbuster adaptation of Warcraft, he was a small indie director with only a few features under his belt. In fact, Moon wasn’t even supposed to mark his debut as a director, that moment was reserved for his passion project, Mute.

Now that his obligations to Warcraft are behind him, the filmmaker can start focusing once again on bringing Mute to the big screen, and has announced that production on the film will commence next week. More on the story below.

Jones made the announcement on his official Twitter account. Here’s what he said:

For those who have not been following the project, the film is set in a futuristic Berlin where Alexander Skarsgard will play a mute bartender who is looking for his partner, while Paul Rudd will play an American surgeon and the only lead to the missing person. Sam Rockwell will reprise his Moon role as Sam Bell, but it’s not exactly clear how his role will connect the two films together, though it is rumored that it will be nothing more than just a cameo. Again, that is just a rumor. But we do know that Jones has said that Mute draws influences from Alien, Blade Runner, and Silent Running.

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

Berlin. Forty years from today. A roiling city of immigrants, where East crashes against West in a science-fiction Casablanca. Leo Beiler (Skarsgard), a mute bartender has one reason and one reason only for living here, and she’s disappeared. But when Leo’s search takes him deeper into the city’s underbelly, an odd pair of American surgeons (led by Rudd) seem to be the only recurring clue, and Leo can’t tell if they can help, or who he should fear most.

The image in the tweet provides a small look at the expansive world that Duncan will be creating, and if you know anything of the director’s vision, you know it will be visually immersive. So it should be interesting to see how one single image will evolve into a full-blown theatrical film.

Since production is expected to begin next week, there should be an assortment of announcements to come in the near future, like the possible addition of talent that will join the cast and a release date.
