Ant-Man‘s Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgård of True Blood will be starring in director Duncan Jones’ upcoming science-fiction thriller, Mute. Jones previously directed Moon and Source Code. The trailer for his next film, Warcraft, will hit this Friday.
According to IGN, Mute will be “set 40 years in the future, about a mute bartender named Leo Beiler (Skarsgård), who crosses paths with an American surgeon (Rudd) as he searches for the woman he loves in a war-torn Berlin.”
“I’ve been working towards making Mute for 12 years now,” Jones said in a statement. “I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that we’re finally going to shoot this utterly unique film. The fact that I get to make it with Alexander Skarsgård and Paul Rudd makes it all the more exciting! Mute is a film that will last. It is unlike any other science fiction being made today.”
With a script written by Jones and Mike Johnson, Mute is expected to star filming in March 2016.
