Duncan Jones Releases Mute Concept Art
Sneak peek at Blade Runner homage

15 September 2009  |  Written by Tom Ambrose  |  Source: Liberty Films

As the director of Moon, one of our favourite sci-fi films this year, any news about Duncan Jones projects is greeted with whooping and cheering throughout the Empire office. Today we were greeted with a piece concept art released on his production company's website Liberty Films, showing us a hint of what his next sci-fi film Mute will hold, with definite hints of Blade Runner (Jones' favourite sci-fi film) in his version of a futuristic Berlin.

Reunited with his usual writing partner Mike Johnson (who was busy during Moon and replaced by Nathan Parker), Jones' plot revolves around a mute bartender who is abducted whilst looking for his girlfriend, with the bad guys being two comedians. Honest.

The date for release is a long way off being confirmed but we can tell you that shooting will begin in Berlin early next year.

P.S. The only clear word in the artwork,"Fremde", means "Foreign" in German, implying this is some foreigners only bar - then again this is a complete guess so free free to ignore us entirely on this one.

RE: I'm confused
L: bonniee what do Donnie Darko and Southland Tales have to do with Duncan Jones? sp; First and second films from a promising 'indie' director. I was comparing Jones to Kelly, I think they share similar traits. I'm hoping Mute doesn't turn out to be Jones' Southland Tales. More

He wasn't kidding when he said this would be influenced by Blade Runner was he? Haha. Very nice looking concept art, certainly one I will be following closely after being blown over by Moon. More
