Jones to Follow Moon with Mute

ON

It looks like the recently announced new project for Moon writer/director Duncan Jones will not be his next, as he tells Screen Daily he is now working on a $25 million sci-fi movie titled Mute.

He says that the UK/German co-production is a “thriller-mystery” and will be set in Berlin at a variety of locations, including at Studio Babelsberg.

“‘Moon’ is about alienation and isolation. The next one will have a different vibe. It’s not about one actor on their own, itÂ’s an ensemble piece,” he said.

Jones will team up with Moon producer Fenegan of London based Liberty Films. Fenegan said “‘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.”

Shooting of Mute is expected to start early next year.
