Belzberg said Gaumont has a “robust development slate and first-look deals with industry legends.” “As a huge fan of ‘Narcos,’ I’m thrilled that Gaumont and Gene have entrusted me to produce this legacy project,” she said.

Mute and Warcraft Director Duncan Jones Says He Wants To Make A Western

With his fourth feature film Mute now available to stream on Netflix, lots of minds are on director Duncan Jones. The son of David Bowie and talented screenwriter watched his career suddenly skyrocket after the huge success of his debut film, Moon. In the years following Jones' success he has helmed three more films including Source Code and the box office flop, Warcraft. His fourth film starring Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux is a spiritual sequel to his very first film, Moon.  So far, Mute is getting pretty mixed reviews on both sides of the spectrum but it seems like the majority of people who are fans of Jones' films really like it.  Jones has been working on Mute for the better part of the last 15 years, and calls the movie his "passion project." But now that Mute is behind him, what's next?

I recently sat down with Jones to discuss Mute,

Second Opinion – Mute (2018)

Mute, 2018.

Directed by Duncan Jones.

Starring Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux, Seyneb Saleh, Noel Clarke, Robert Sheehan, Sam Rockwell and Robert Kazinsky.

Synopsis:

A mute bartender goes up against his city’s gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

Filmmakers should really stop saying how it took them a decade to get a film made. Nine times out of ten, the final product is disappointing. Case in point, Duncan Jones made the first script for Mute 16 years ago, and the hype has only (understandably) increased since his first two films Moon and Source Code became hits. That his previous film, Warcraft, received poor reviews meant only that a return to sci-fi was a good thing for Duncan, who’s been open about his passion for this brainchild project. Add in a Netflix release and the hype only got bigger, as people all over

Sci-fi Noir Thriller Mute was Originally Written As a Modern-Day Mobster Film

Duncan Jones' 15-year passion project, Netflix's sci-fi noir thriller Mute feels like it could perfectly fit into the Black Mirror universe, but it wasn't originally conceived that way. I recently sat down and talked to the director about the film and he explained that when he and co-writer Michael Robert Johnson first started writing what was supposed to be Jones' first film it was set in modern times.

The project was shelved when Jones and actor Sam Rockwell decided to do what turned out to be Jones' very first film Moon. Then in the years that followed, Jones did two studio films, Source Code followed by Warcraft only to return to his original project to find it slightly dated. 

"We wrote it around the same time that Sexy Beast came out and Layer Cake and these kind of a new wave of British gangster films that were coming out.

‘Mute’ Director Duncan Jones on His Strange and Deranged Sci-fi Passion Project [Interview]
Writer-director Duncan Jones‘ new movie, Mute, has been a long time coming. “I’ve finally got this boulder up the hill,” he told us with a laugh and a sense of relief. The filmmaker behind Moon, Source Code, and Warcraft originally envisioned his bleak, surprisingly old-school sci-fi mystery as his directorial debut, but the project faced its share of challenges over […]

‘Mute’: Duncan Jones’ ‘Blade Runner’ Wannabe Lacks Mystery & Depth [Review]

Watching the noir-ish sci-fi movie “Mute,” from English filmmaker Duncan Jones (“Source Code,” “Warcraft“), I couldn’t help wondering about the intended audience the director made the film for, and whether I’d spent the last few years awaiting its 16-years-in-the-making release in vain. Watching its credits, I didn’t need to wonder. “Mute” attempts to take Jones back to the type of filmmaking of 2009 when his feature debut, “Moon,” premiered, dazzled us and proclaimed the helmer a new and exciting talent to watch.

Where Do You Recognize The Cast of Mute From?

Director Duncan Jones is bringing his latest movie, Mute, to Netflix. Jones has previously seen success with movies such as Moon, and Source Code, but his 2016 adaptation of World of Warcraft did not impress the critics at all. However, most will be pleased to note that Mute is in a much more similar vein to his earlier projects; in fact, he wrote the movie in 2004 and while not a sequel to Moon, it does exist in the same universe, and Sam Rockwell’s protagonist (or at least a version of him) does appear. Mute is set in 2052 in a dystopian Berlin and focuses on Leo, a mute bartender, who is searching for his missing girlfriend. The cast is full of names that you’ll recognize, but where do you know them from?

Mute review

Moon and Warcraft director Duncan Jones returns to sci-fi with Mute. Here's our review of a left-field, downbeat thriller...

Great science fiction is more than just window dressing - it's metaphorical. In Blade Runner, the future Los Angeles of lost souls and runaway replicants was intrinsic to its themes of memory and mortality. Likewise the spare, cold lunar base in Moon, director Duncan Jones' superb debut: it underpinned the story's sense of loneliness and isolation.

Mute, Jones' first film since his 2016 videogame adaptation, Warcraft, takes in touches of Blade Runner's noir thriller atmosphere and Moon's quirky characters and poignant otherness. The result, however, is a genre piece that doesn't hang together as well as either of those films.

Alexander Skarsgard stars as Leo, a 30-something bartender working in a near-future Berlin. Among a high-tech cultural melting pot, Leo stands apart from everyone else: a childhood accident robbed him of the ability to speak,

Short And Sweet New Promo Spot For Duncan Jones' Mute

A short trailer has appeared online for Netflix's Mute and it just solidified my plans for Friday night! There's only about 30 seconds of footage in this trailer, but I'll be damned if they aren't captivating and interesting as hell the entire way through. Plus, I'm a big fan of Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, and Duncan Jones so I was going to watch this film anyway.

New ‘Mute’ Poster Is A Throwback to a Simpler Time

A new poster has been unveiled by director Duncan Jones‘ return to science fiction, ‘Mute‘. The poster is drawn in a style that was popular in the 1930’s and 1940’s, and features Alexander Skarsgård at the forefront, along with Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux. Netflix picked up the film after Jones spent over a decade trying to get the film made. ‘Warcraft‘ was certainly a critical and financial failure, but ‘Source Code‘ and ‘Moon‘ were certainly valiant sci-fi efforts, so ‘Mute’ certainly has a pedigree that seems promising, and this poster ultimately shows a confidence in the film itself.

Here’s the official poster for the film, along with the synopsis below, and you can watch the trailer here. ‘Mute‘ arrives Netflix on February 23, 2018.

Duncan Jones’ Mute On Netflix February 23

Going to the local cinema to see the latest movie has almost become a thing of the past. Some of the population would prefer staying at home with their big screen TV, even if it means waiting a few months to watch a popular movie, instead of dealing with people talking through a film or on their cell phone.

More filmmakers are turning to other forms of distribution to release their movies, with their stories no longer made for just the big screen. Netflix has become one of those outlets and it’s being accomplished with successful results.

Director Dee Rees’ (Pariah) Oscar nominated Mudbound, Suicide Squad director David Ayer’s Bright, and this week’s big surprise – J.J. Abrams Cloverfield Paradox, are a few examples of films finding an audience through the popular streaming format.

Now comes Mute, the soulful sci-fi journey from filmmaker Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code,

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in February 2018

  • Indiewire
Netflix isn’t exactly known for adventurous film programming, but their February lineup is even more geared toward comfort cinema than usual — not that we’re complaining. The world is a cold place these days, so it’s worth celebrating life’s small pleasures; say what you will about the state of our union, but we now live in a world where you can watch “Ocean’s Twelve” on your watch. Steven Soderbergh’s criminally underrated masterpiece is only one of the reliable standbys coming to the streaming giant this month: the heist sequel is joined by a Martin Scorsese classic, Quentin Tarantino’s two best movies, a current Oscar nominee for Best Foreign-Language Film, and more.

Here are the seven best films coming to Netflix this month.

‘Mute’ Finally Gets A Trailer!

Netflix has finally released the trailer for Duncan Jones‘ upcoming sic-fi epic, ‘Mute‘. Although the film is set to be released in a little over a month, the film has long been in the works for the director, roughly 12 years or so. The film stars Alexander Skarsgård as Leo, a mute who searches for his missing girlfriend in a futuristic Berlin. The long in the making film was originally intended to be made before the director’s under-seen debut, ‘Moon‘, but was continually pushed back in favor of making more accessible genre faire such as ‘Source Code‘ and the abysmal ‘Warcraft‘. Finally, Netflix decided to green light the project, much to Jones’ excitement.

Netflix, these crazy new kids on the block, had this totally crazy philosophy on film making straight out of the 70s. Don’t make 4 quad “please everyone” homogenous blobs! Make films fimmakers are passionate about & let the audience find them!
