Duncan Jones On Moon’s Two Quasi-Sequels
He’s still developing Mute, but also has plans for a third loosely connected film
Bleeding Cool, which has been checking out a Q&A session that Moon director Duncan Jones held at The New Beverly in LA recently, has highlighted the following quotation from Jones, in which he indicates that Moon could be the first in a loosely connected trilogy. We knew about Mute already, of course (he’s been talking about it since way before Source Code even) but it seems there’s the third film bubbling away in the back of the director’s mind too:
“You’ll definitely see the world expanding. As far as the epilogue of Sam Bell’s adventures there are going to be… the plan was to do Mute first. Mute is a sci-fi story that takes place in Berlin. It’s very much a city film. Moon’s obviously a film about isolation, about as isolated as you can get on the far side of the moon. And there’s a third science fiction film, which will hopefully be the next film, which is a very different thing, which I can’t say too much about right now. But all three of those are connected in that they all take place within the same universe and each one of them will have just a couple of little fingers into each other’s story, so you’ll… just a little link between them all. So you’ll find out a little bit more about what happens in Moon in Mute and in this other film.”
Let’s hope these get beyond the development stage.
