Producer Stuart Fenegan announced in a press release that Clint Mansell is set to reteam with Duncan Jones on the director’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Mute. The film will star Paul Rudd, Alexander Skarsgard and Sam Rockwell. The movie is set in in Berlin, forty years from today and follows a mute bartender whose search for a woman takes him deeper into the city’s underbelly, where he encounters an odd pair of American surgeons. Jones (Source Code, Warcraft) has also co-written the screenplay with Mike Johnson. Fenegan (Moon, Warcraft) is producing the project for Liberty Films. Mansell has previously scored Jones’ first feature Moon. Mute is set to start shooting in March of 2016 and is expected to premiere in 2017.
Mansell’s recent projects also include Ben Weathley’s High-Rise starring Tom Hiddleston, which premiered at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, as well as Dito Montiel’s Man Down starring Shia LaBeouf, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September.
