Duncan Jones to director Killer Intent TV series

Fresh from the news that he’s set to direct a big screen adaptation of 2000 Ad’s Rogue Trooper, it has now been announced that Duncan Jones is set to direct and executive produce the TV series Killer Intent.

Based on the novel by Tony Kent, who is also leading the writers room for the series, Killer Intent follows the adventures of intelligence agent Joe Dempsey, Irish lawyer Michael Devlin and American television journalist Sarah Truman.

“It’s an extraordinary honor to have Duncan Jones and Liberty Films adapting Killer Intent for TV,” said Kent. “I’m absolutely blown away to be working with such outstanding talent, particularly as I have been a big fan going right back to the release of Moon almost 10 years ago.”

Jones’ most recent film Mute was released on Netflix earlier this year, and was met with mixed reviews. Read ours here.

‘The Innocents’ Trailer: A Supernatural ‘Curse’ Jeopardizes Lives and Young Love in New Netflix Series — Watch

Netflix received critical acclaim early this year for an eight-episode (so far) British series about teen runaways who fall for one another, “The End of the F***ing World.” The streaming service hopes for a successful repeat with “The Innocents,” and just debuted that show’s newest trailer. While “The End of the F***ing World” featured a possible-psychopath protagonist, “The Innocents” stars Sorcha Groundsell (“Clique”) as a young woman who shape-shifts, transforming herself into humans who bear little resemblance to her blue-eyed self.

Groundsell’s June McDaniel learns of her unique ability after she and fellow classmate Harry Polk (Percell Ascott) flee their stern families. Well, what’s left of their families: June’s mother, a fellow shape-shifter, abandoned her three years ago, worried about harming her child. Golden Globe nominee Guy Pearce (“Mildred Pierce”) plays Halvorson, a professor who vows to reconnect and cure mother and daughter.

Mute Director Duncan Jones Set to Direct His First TV Series with Killer Intent

Duncan Jones, the director behind Moon, Warcraft, and Mute, is set to direct his first TV series, which will be an adaptation of the novel thriller Killer Intent. As a fan of Jones and his work, it's good to see him jump on another project, which I'm sure he'll end up directing before he gets to his recently announced film Rogue Trooper. Just in case you're not familiar with Killer Intent, here's some information:

Killer Intent is the first in a series of thrillers about a Jack Reacher-type intelligence agent Joe Dempsey. In the novel, when an attempted assassination sparks a chain reaction of dangerous events across London, Britain’s elite security forces are powerless to stop the chaos threatening to overwhelm the Government. As a dark conspiracy unfolds, three strangers find their fates entwined: Dempsey; Sarah Truman, a CNN reporter determined to get her headline; and Michael Devlin, a

‘Moon’ Director Duncan Jones to Helm ‘Killer Intent’ TV Series Adaptation
Duncan Jones will be directing his first TV series with an adaptation of the spy thriller Killer Intent. It’s a little out of the wheelhouse of the Moon director, who has mostly stuck with sci-fi and fantasy for most of his promising career — and sci-fi and fantasy movies at that. But after the lukewarm response to his cyberpunk […]

Duncan Jones to Direct TV Adaptation of ‘Killer Intent’
Duncan Jones, who won a BAFTA for his debut feature “Moon,” is to direct a television adaptation of Tony Kent’s thriller “Killer Intent.” The series will be produced by Liberty Films, the London- and L.A.-based production company of Stuart Fenegan and Jones, who is David Bowie’s son.

Kent will adapt his novel alongside an “American-style writers’ room of established TV talent,” according to a statement. Jones will executive produce alongside Fenegan, who acquired the screen rights for “Killer Intent” in advance of the hardback release earlier this year.

It will be Liberty’s first foray into television. Jones and Fenegan have previously worked exclusively in feature films with credits such as “Moon,” “Source Code,” “Warcraft” and “Mute.”

Jones said: “Tony’s writing style is already so cinematic, working with him and a room of writers to adapt his first book will be a thrill. I’m

‘Our House’ Is Beholden To Horror Clichés But Sadly Lacks Any Real Scares [Fantasia Review]

Anthony Scott Burns’ latest film “Our House” certainly took the scenic route from concept to screen. The Canadian horror movie—making its World Premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in advance of its multi-platform release via IFC Midnight—is a remake of a U.S. indie from 2010, “Ghost in the Machine” (also known as “Phasma Ex Machina”). Burns’ and writer Nathan Parker (“Moon”) refashioned the sci-fi concept into something a little more domesticated and spooky, in addition to pumping up the production values.

Duncan Jones Will Direct A Comic Book Film Next But It Reportedly Won’t Be For DC

Duncan Jones started his filmmaking career with a bang, helming two films that are were fairly well lauded, “Moon” and “Source Code.” Then, last year, he released the big-budget “Warcraft,” which was highly-anticipated but didn’t have the impact that he might have desired. The film was looked at as a disappointment while making a fair amount of money overseas. Then, the most recent film, Netflix Original “Mute,” was released and you probably didn’t even know about it.

Warcraft Director Takes on Mystery Comic Book Movie

Warcraft Director Takes on Mystery Comic Book Movie
Warcraft director Duncan Jones has revealed that he's directing a comic book movie as his next project. Unfortunately, for the time being, that's all he's really willing to tell us about it. Though, he did add that it's a "special one" and that he would be teasing a bit more about it in a few days. So, the question naturally becomes, what comic book is Jones going to be adapting for the big screen?

Then again, who's to say it's going to be for the big screen at all? Duncan Jones directed Mute for Netflix. Maybe he's got something brewing with the streaming service again? When it comes to what we know for sure, Jones took to Twitter to make the initial reveal, saying that he's nervous but clearly excited about what he's got cooking. Here's what he had to say about it.

Sam Rockwell on Playing a Nazi in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and the Bob Fosse Biopic He’s Dreaming of Making

Sam Rockwell on Playing a Nazi in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and the Bob Fosse Biopic He’s Dreaming of Making
Sam Rockwell isn’t slowing down. A few months after winning every award under the sun for his performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” the actor is back in theaters with another distinctly American film: “Woman Walks Ahead,” which required him to saddle up as a cowboy and learn the Lakota language alongside Jessica Chastain. The recent Oscar winner isn’t stateside for the release of Susanna White’s 1890’s period piece about Sitting Bull and the woman who traveled across the country to paint his portrait, however — he’s in Prague, where production on “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” and “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waiti’s outrageous-sounding “Jojo Rabbit” is underway.

“It is the greatest script I’ve read in so long,” Rockwell said over the phone of the dark comedy that Waititi hopes will “piss off a lot of racists.” Asked about his character, Captain Klenzendorf, the actor

20 Best Heady Sci-Fi Films: Part 1

  • Cinelinx
In honor of the 50th anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey, we make our picks for the best cerebral science fiction films of all time. Here are picks #20 - 11.

The job of science fiction is to push boundaries. Indeed, the very description of science fiction suggests going a bit further than established fact. Science fiction is supposed to build on the known world around us. It is supposed to explore the unknown. When science fiction is at its best, this exploration is being fueled by our own human condition. The reason we are exploring outward is because there is an uncertainty inside. We feel incomplete in some regard, and the answers might be out there.

Science fiction films that can best communicate the relationship between the universe and our own minds tend to be the films that leave a lasting impression. This is my pick for the 20 films that do the best job of this.

Netflix Acquires Full Rights to Seth Rogen’s Personal Autonomy

Netflix Acquires Full Rights to Seth Rogen’s Personal Autonomy
Seth Rogen has become a wholly owned and licensed subsidiary of Netflix Inc.

On Sunday, the streaming-video giant announced that “Rogen has entered into a lifetime deal to transfer full ownership of his personal autonomy to Netflix.”

“As a general rule, I don’t really ‘read’ anything before I sign it,” Rogen is quoted as saying in the April 1 announcement. The release also cites “Netflix Chief Operations Officer Karen Shartwell,” who says, “There really isn’t anything on Earth that we can’t make him do.”

The joke can be read as an inside-baseball allusion to Netflix’s recent binge-spending spree on Hollywood talent, which has included pricey overall deals with Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy. But essentially it’s just a promo for Rogen’s “Hilarity for Charity” comedy special, which will be available to stream exclusively on Netflix starting Friday, April 6.

In the press release, Netflix lists “srogen@netflix.

Duncan Jones on Netflix’s ‘Mute’, Designing a Futurist Noir, and That ‘Moon’ Connection

Once upon a time, Duncan Jones intended Mute to be his feature film debut. An unorthodox mystery set in a future Berlin, the film follows Leo (Alexander Skarsgård), a mute bartender who tears through the city's criminal underbelly like a silent wrecking ball after the woman he loves goes missing. Of course, Mute didn't end up being Jones' first film, far from it, and in the fifteen-plus years he spent trying to get the project off the ground, the film evolved, became connected to the filmmaker's sci-fi masterpiece Moon, and ultimately landed at Netflix

‘Prospect’ Is A Western Sci-Fi Hybrid Reminiscent Of ‘Moon’ [SXSW Review]

The uncharted, lawless era of the 19th century Gold Rush, and the accompanying American dream notion that went with it—journeying thousands of miles for a better life with the hopes of striking it rich— are transposed to the world of sci-fi in Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell‘s “Prospect,” a sci-fi/Western hybrid that debuted this week at SXSW.

A well-natured amalgam of both, say, “Star Wars,” and Duncan Jones‘ “Moon,” especially in its impactful first half, “Prospect” tells the story of a teenager (Sophie Thatcher) and her father (Jay Duplass) who travel to a remote alien moon’s toxic forest on the hunt for a rare substance, aiming to make a mint.

Sam Rockwell's Troubled Past Led Him to His 'Three Billboards' Oscar Win

Sam Rockwell half-jokingly said that if he won the best supporting actor Oscar for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, he would finally marry his girlfriend of more than 10 years, Iron Man 2 co-star Leslie Bibb. He did take home the statuette, and a source who knows the couple says, "Sam's not in a rush, and Leslie says she's fine the way things are, but who knows — a promise is a promise." You can't blame Sam, 49, for wanting to take a pause and enjoy his moment of glory. After all, he's been toiling as a character actor for years, earning raves but not much money or fame for films like 2009's sci-fi cult fave Moon and 2002's Chuck Barris biopic Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. "I think of myself as a journeyman actor," says Sam. "I've got some talent, and I work hard." Sam and his girlfriend, Leslie. (Photo Credit: Getty Images

Duncan Jones’ Mute Couldn’t Work in a Post-Blade Runner World

Duncan Jones’ 2009 film Moon heralded the arrival of fresh and exciting voice in the science fiction genre. The film was smart, thought-provoking, and paid homage to its cinematic forefathers (most notably 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris) without being too derivative. Jones would make a follow up film that hurdled over the sophomore slump like an espresso-fueled cheetah two years later with Source Code, a fresh take on the notion of being stuck in a time loop (think Groundhog’s Day, but way sadder).
