Last year, the science-fiction movie Moon by Duncan Jones was a real revelation, a damn great movie. So I'm quite glad that Duncan Jones is sticking to science-fiction for his next project: the sci-fi thriller movie Mute. The film is based on a script co-written by Duncan Jones and Michael Robert Johnson (who contributed to the script of Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes): it's a big-city mystery story that takes place in a future Berlin.
I heard Duncan Jones is facing financing difficulties to get the right budget (he hopes to find a budget of $25 million), but, hopefully, filming should start this year in Berlin, Europe. So the film will probably be released in 2011.
Here's a first concept art of the movie Mute:
(Click on the picture to enlarge.)
"Mute is about a woman whose disappearance causes a mystery for her partner, a mute bartender. When she disappears, he has to go up against the city’s gangsters."
A few words from Director Duncan Jones about the movie Mute:
He sounds dedicated to his project. We may expect the movie Mute to be as surprising and awesome as Moon then!
More information about the movie Mute soon!
