Duncan Jones, director of the upcoming Warcraft movie, is stirring up talk of Mute, a film he’s been trying to make for over a decade.
The director recently spoke to Indiewire about Mute, the second film in a planned trilogy, with his 2009 space drama Moon being the first.
“I’ve always wanted to make Mute,” Jones said. “I’ve been on Mute for about 14 years. I’m determined, no matter what happens, I’m going to get that movie made, at some point.”
Calling the world that the films take place in the “Moon-iverse,” the director went on to say that the next film in the trilogy is ready to go as well and will boast a female lead:
“It’s ready to go,” he says. “I was trying to make it after Source Code. It’s a female lead, and at that time, four of five years ago, it was just proving really difficult to get the film made, this science fiction film with a female lead.”
“Mute‘s kind of happening now,” Jones explained, “so I’m going to do that, and then, with any luck, I’ll be able to get this other film made that will make up the third part of that trilogy, as soon as possible.”
Despite Warcraft’s predicted flop, Jones seems undeterred, and with terrific films such as Source Code and Moon under his belt, the director is certainly capable of making some special films.
