MOON Director to direct Blade Runner type movie next

by Joey Paur

But don't worry! He doesn't want to remake 'Blade Runner' or make a sequel. After seeing 'Moon' at the Sundance Film Festival I was pretty excited to see what the director of that film Duncan Jones creates next. 'Moon' was his first feature film and it was pretty fantasitic. I can't wait for you all to see this film so you know what I'm talking about. Before he madfe this film he was directing commercials for British ad agency. He recently gave an interview with Popular Mechanics in which he talks about his film 'Moon' in a decent amount of detail so it is full of spoilers. He also reveals what his next film will entail it it happens to be another sci-fi movie. Here's what he says.

"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."

I think this guy would do an incredible job making a sci-fi film like the one he is talking about. Jones has the potential to be one of the next great filmmakers. He goes on to talk about three people that he invited to see Moon.

"I had three people I wanted to watch it: Ridley Scott, Terry Gilliam and Neil Gaiman. Neil Gaiman and Terry Gilliam have both watched it and loved it, so now I'm just waiting for Ridley Scott, which is the big one for me."

I don't see how Scott wouldn't like the movie. But ya never know. All I know is that I thought it was great, and I am looking forward to watching it again. I am also really excited to see his Big City sci-fi mystery movie take shape.
