Duncan Jones On The Connections Between Moon And Mute And… An Unnamed Third Film

A couple of weeks back, Duncan Jones and his producing partner Stuart Fenegan hosted two special screenings of Moon at The New Beverly in LA. On one night, Sam Rockwell joined them, and the video cameras were switched on.

I’ve just watched a video of the whole Q&A with thanks to Man Made Movies, the dogged and determined Jones support blog.

The clip is embedded below, so you can enjoy it too. First, though, a transcript of Jones’ answer to the question “Is there any chance of a Moon sequel?”

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.

To take that on face value, Moon is positioned as the first of the three stories, chronologically.

I’m glad to hear that Jones is still pursuing his mysterious, project and hope to find out more about it soon. As for Mute, we understand that a comic book adaptation of the screenplay is somewhere in the pipeline…
