MOON / Source Code Director Duncan Jones announced last year that after difficulties with acquiring funding for MUTE, the previously planned follow up to MOON, that he would be going ahead with a graphic novel version of his love letter to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. Talking to James Wallace over at Gordon & The Whale in March 2011, Duncan said:

“…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.”

It seems work has continued since then and Duncan teased on Twitter recently:

And it seems it’s not just artwork that has him excited, as last night he let everyone know how he feels about the process of transferring a script to graphic novel format:

Is the artwork for the Mute graphic novel? Is the script conversion to the graphic novel format for Mute also? Everything would seem to point to that being the case, but as usual Duncan is playing his cards close to his chest, although recent tweets suggest Poker may not be his strong point.

Twitter - Duncan Jones Poker Master?

Whatever the answer, it’s certainly a busy and creative time for Duncan and his producer Stuart Fenegan over in L A as they also recently announced their involvement in the upcoming biopic of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, and we also know there is another Sci-Fi feature in the works as well. Let’s hope the financing is not dependant upon Duncan’s skills in the casinos of Las Vegas though, eh? 😉

For more details on Mute, have a read of this io9 interview on that very subject from June 2009.

Happy Birthday Duncan Jones!

Inspired by the news of Duncan’s new project to bring the life of James Bond author Ian Fleming to the screen, here we have a DJ in a DJ.

This photo was taken in L A last night where Duncan is busy soaking in the whole Bond experience. It has not been manipulated in an image editor (I just knocked it up in an image editor)

Now why did I start this blog update…oh yeah…HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DUNCAN 🙂 Have a bloody lovely day mate 🙂

Ian Fleming: The Man Behind James Bond by Andrew Lycett

We’ve all been getting pretty excited over here recently with hints dropped on Duncan’s Twitter feed about future projects, but no one had any idea that Duncan and his producing partner Stuart Fenegan have been working away on something totally unexpected, but totally fantastic.

We are now very pleased to announce that Duncan will be bringing the amazing life of James Bond creator Ian Fleming to life in a new feature film going into production later this year.
