With Duncan Jones’s directorial debut Moon only two months away, he is already talking about his possible next film. Jones talked about it in a very spoilery interview with Popular Mechanics.
“It looks like I’m going to be doing another science-fiction film next. I love Blade Runner, it’s one of my favorite films, and I’ve always been really… depressed that there was never—not a sequel, because I don’t think it’s right to make a sequel about Blade Runner, but no one’s really tried to make a film which was set in the same kind of world or had that same kind of feel. So that’s what I’m doing, a big-city mystery story that takes place in a future Berlin.”
Having seen Moon twice now, I can firmly say that it is one of the best science fiction films in years. Jones obviously gets science fiction, so its great to hear he’s going to follow up Moon with another science fiction film. This sounds like a much different film then Moon, so its great to hear that Jones is going to explore different areas of the genre.
Are you excited for Moon? What do you think of this concept?
