Netflix has sent over the first three images from Duncan Jones’ upcoming sci-fi thriller “Mute”.
Set in the same universe as Moon, the movie is going to be the second in a trilogy of films set in that universe although not necessarily featuring the same characters or a connected story. Mute features Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux and newcomer Seyneb Saleh and will definitely remind people of the Future-Noir look that Blade Runner established. It hits Netflix later this year.
Here is the official synopsis:
Set in the near-future, 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.
