Duncan Jones starts shooting ‘Mute’ with Justin Theroux in Berlin

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Oct. 12 (UPI) — Filmmaker Duncan Jones — the son of late rock icon David Bowie — began principal photography this week in Berlin on his new thriller Mute.

Set in 2052, the movie stars Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux. It is expected to debut on Netflix next year.

Mute is an encapsulation of everything I am fascinated by: noir, science-fiction, and unique people in trouble because of who and what they are. I’m delighted to be able to return to Berlin for the shoot, a place I lived for a period of time growing up, and I’m excited to be working with Netflix on a film that is so close to my heart,” Jones said in a statement Wednesday.

“Duncan Jones is such a dynamic directing force, and the team he has assembled in front of and behind the camera will continue to reinvigorate the science-fiction genre. It will be exciting to share this film with Netflix audiences around the world next year,” added Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer.
