Some Of The Best Projects Take Time

While there are films that seem to get made pretty quick, there are some other projects that seem to take years and even decades to get off the ground. Among the films that took a while to finally take off is Gangs Of New York, X-Men, Blade Runner 2, Mad Max Fury Road and even Duncan Jones’s upcoming film called Mute. Duncan Jones has been hard at work on this project for more than 10 years. For one thing, he needed the funding to be able to get the movie off the ground. At the same time, he also needed to work out the issues in his screenplay so that it will be tightened.

However, it is expected that this project is going to be one of the better projects that Duncan Jones’s has taken on. For one thing, it is actually one of the projects that he has been more involved in when it comes to the creative processes. He has worked on this project longer than he worked on Moon. Mute does have the potential to be one of the groundbreaking films. Even though the concept art is that of something very similar to Blade Runner, the story involves a mute witness going up against an underground gang.

A lot of the best projects tend to take a while to get off the ground. However, time does not necessarily mean quality. There are some movies that took a long time to film, and yet it still turned out to be nothing beyond mediocre. For instance, there were films like Ender’s Game, the third Ghostbusters movie, and a Batman and Superman movie. A lot of that has to do with the execution and the editing. A lot of good films do wind up getting trashed in the editing room.

Fortunately, with Duncan Jones going back to his element, there is hope that he is going to bring out something that is going to amaze audiences in a similar way that Moon did. For one thing, Mute is going to be a human story that will most likely avoid any sci-fi tropes such as aliens and mutants.

Duncan Jones’s Moon Gets Off The Ground

People who have been following Duncan Jones career have most likely known about his story that he has been trying to get off the ground for a while. The name of his story is called Mute. He has come up with the story long before he came up with the movie called Moon. He has been working on the project for decades now. However, there have been some changes to the world of Mute. For one thing, he has revealed that it is connected to the world of Moon. Previously, he has connected to the world of Blade Runner. However, the concept art has been inspired by the 1982 Sci-Fi classic directed by Ridley Scott. Interestingly enough, Jones has noted other sci-fi hits such as Alien and Outland as inspiration for Moon.

The most recent announcement for the project has came with surprising news. Duncan Jones is ready to start filming his movie in the next week. He has made the announcement on Twitter. The film will be shot on location in Berlin, which is where the story take place. Duncan Jones has also revealed that even with the futuristic setting, there will be no appearance of mutants, aliens, or other common aspects of sci-fi. Mute is a story that deals with humanity.

This is expected to be a return to form for Duncan Jones. Even though he has wowed audiences with Moon, his other films which include Source Code have led a lot to be desired from the director. However, all a director needs is to be in his element. Mute seems to be his element. For one thing, there have been a lot of reworkings done to his story so that it could be tightened up. Therefore, it can be expected that audiences are going to be amazed. Also, the story line is something that is very interesting to look at for the audience. As of right now, there is no set release date for the upcoming Duncan Jones film.
