More on Mute

In between plugging sci-fi pic Moon, Duncan Jones has been talking more about the next one – futuristic thriller Mute.

“Moon (below) is about alienation and isolation,” he told Screen Daily. “The next one will have a different vibe. It’s not about one actor on their own, it’s an ensemble piece.”

So what is it about, exactly? Jones wouldn’t spill much, but fortunately, producer Stuart Fenegan was on hand to fill in a little more info. Look away now if you’re spoiler-phobic, though it’s only a rough synopsis….

“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.”

Jones will kick off shooting on the movie early next year in Germany, with locations around Berlin and at the city’s Studio Babelsberg.

And he’ll have more money to play with this time. It’s not Michael Bay-sized cash, but it “will definitely be bigger than Moon, probably something up to $25 million.”

We’re already looking forward to it.
