Duncan Jones To Make A Future City Film Next
Thanks to a triumphant freshman effort known as Moon, Duncan Jones has quickly found himself on the radar of film fans worldwide. His second directorial outing, Source Code, is set to premiere at this year's SXSW Film Festival and will be released on April 1, but Jones isn't resting on his laurels and is already planning his next venture.
In an interview with We Got This Covered, Jones revealed that his next movie will be an untitled sci-fi project that he is calling a "future city film." Though he was sparse on details about the story, the director says that it's his homage to Blade Runner, "even if it’s a bit bigger." Sadly, things aren't looking as positive for Mute, a film that Jones has been talking about since Moon first came out in 2009. The film currently stands in a limbo state, despite Jones saying how much he loves the script. The biggest hangup seems to be the fact that the script is set in the future, but its a story that isn't dependent on a sci-fi hook.
Source Code is easily one of our most anticipated movies of 2011 and more Duncan Jones is good Duncan Jones. Considering we live in a time where good, classic sci-fi comes few and far between, it's good to know that there's at least one director out there who is trying his hardest to bring it back.
