Duncan Jones has been hard at work since the release of Warcraft last year, and thanks to a few newly released stills we finally get a peek at his next project, Mute.
Set in a futuristic Berlin, Mute follows Alexander Skarsgard as a lonely bartender who requests the assistance of a pair of surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) to find his missing girlfriend.
Later this year, Netflix will be releasing Mute as a part of its larger push to distribute more original content.
Jones considers the project part of a larger thematic trilogy that included his 2009 film, Moon. Moon won multiple BAFTAs, including the award for outstanding debut by a British director, writer or producer for Jones.
Paul Rudd will next be seen in the upcoming comedy movie Ideal Home as Avengers:Infinity War continues filming, Alexander Skarsgard can be spotted in the new HBO miniseries Big Little Lies while Justin Theroux will be in HBO’s last season of The Leftovers and adding his voice to The Lego Ninjago Movie, expected to come out this September.
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.
