Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.04.15] scifi thriller dystopic

Warcraft's Duncan Jones has some good news coming out of AFM today. His long gestating dystopian thriller MUTE has found some star power in Ant Man's Paul Rudd and True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard and is actually going to shoot!

In a statement the director Moon and Source Code said, “I’ve been working towards making Mute for 12 years now. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that we’re finally going to shoot this utterly unique film. The fact that I get to make it with Alexander Skarsgard and Paul Rudd makes it all the more exciting. Mute is a film that will last. It is unlike any other science fiction being made today.”

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.

We first reported on MUTE back in 2009, so the news that we're *finally* going to get to see his vision up on the screen is pretty exciting.

I'm really looking forward to seeing (what sounds like) Jones' true passion project.
