Comic books are cool too!

Scifi auteur Duncan Jones has no shortage of interesting ideas. Unfortunately, not all of these ideas are going to make it to the screen. Mute, for example, a movie he’s worked on for years, is getting scrapped and turned into a comic book instead. Here’s a synopsis for the movie-turned-comic: “[A] Blade Runner-esque sci-fi mystery about a mute bartender who goes up against his futuristic city’s gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing girlfriend.”

Too bad we’re not getting to see it on the screen, since it reminds me a little of Dark City. Don’t give up all hope, though. Jones says we might be seeing Mute as a movie eventually:

“Because we’ve had so many problems trying to get this film made, you know? The people who are involved with financing films have just been…shy…shy of making the script. So what we decided to do is we’re going to make a graphic novel of it, prove it…prove it to an audience that this works and maybe in the future get the chance to come back and make it.”

So if you want to see Mute as a movie, buy a few copies of the comic. You can pass them out at work or something. Hey, I didn’t say it was going to be easy. (via The Playlist)

Wunderkind director Duncan Jones is making the most of his downtime, discussing his third feature before the second one, Source Code, has even been released. While he had indicated that his next project would be Mute, the story of a mute Englishman searching for his girlfriend, it appears now that due to the lukewarm reaction to a leaked script, he’s looking past that one for the time being. He clearly puts a lot of stock in the opinion of the blogosphere if he’s willing to sit on a project because of lukewarm public reaction to an early draft of a script. Perhaps too much?

Fortunately, his new project sounds interesting, so don’t shed too many tears for that mute Brit. He’ll find his girl one day. In the interim, Jones is working on an untitled Blade Runner homage that he is writing himself. If you are a fan of cities and of the future (and honestly, who isn’t?) then you’ll be drooling over this next project, which Jones refers to as a “city-based future film.” Granted there isn’t too much to get excited about in that revelation, but anything with Blade Runner in its DNA is probably going to garner some buzz. No details are available regarding production schedule or release, but if it’s not taking place in the distant future, he should probably get crackin’. (/Film)
