Duncan Jones’ Netflix Project, ‘Mute’, Looks Like Sci-fi Heaven

Not to pat myself on the back, but we were the first to discover and talk about Duncan Jones right here on Bloody Disgusting. I had come across some promotional materials at the American Film Market for his feature debut, Moon, way back in 2008 before it was announced as part of the Sundance Film Festival.

Since then, Jones has become a filmmaker fav of the community, directing Source Code and even Warcraft. But what we’re truly excited about is his Netflix project, the futuristic thriller Mute.

We now have a first look at the film that’s set in the near-future where Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin.  Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly.  A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.

The Netflix original film is directed by Duncan Jones and written by Jones and Michael Robert Johnson.  Stuart Fenegan serves as producer and Charles J.D. Schissel and Trevor Beattie serve as executive producers. The film will launch in all territories where Netflix is available in 2017.

We’re looking at a modern day Blade Runner, right?!

    Netflix are doing some wonderful things with their shows and exclusive movies… they’re becoming quite the powerhouse.

    • Becoming? Netflix has been a primary player since 2011.

        For streamed shows yeah, but not the amount of exclusive movies they’re now doing too.

    Oh HELL yes. Been waiting for this for a long time, and that was before I realized Skarsgaard was in it. Amazing, it looks incredibly Blade Runnerish.
