It’s been just over a year and a half since director Duncan Jones underwhelmed audiences with his Warcraft adaptation (too harsh?). However, even before that movie crawled into theaters, Jones had announced that he would be working on another science fiction film called Mute.

For those who loved one of his prior films, Moon, this was just the type of announcement they were waiting for. This would be a spiritual successor to that film, and would bring the director back to his slower, more meditative pieces. But for quite some, things have been a bit quiet, with most big news from the film (which was originally suppose to release in 2017) hitting before January of 2017.

Netflix has had their hands on this project since 2016…so when is it coming? After he gushed about his lead, Alexander Skarsgård, winning a Golden Globe, he was asked that very question. Here was his response.

So there you have it. Mute is one of the huge slate of 80 films set to hit Netflix this year. To be honest, I had completely forgotten that this film even exists, and that Jones had actually signed a deal with Netflix, but his talent is unmistakable, and his involvement with them is yet another indication that Netflix is killing it.

Are you excited to hear that we’ll be seeing Jones’ next film sooner rather than later? Let us know down below!
