BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Filmmaker Duncan Jones -- the son of late rock icon David Bowie -- began principal photography this week in Berlin on his new thriller Mute.
"Mute is an encapsulation of everything I am fascinated by: noir, science-fiction, and unique people in trouble because of who and what they are. I'm delighted to be able to return to Berlin for the shoot, a place I lived for a period of time growing up, and I'm excited to be working with Netflix on a film that is so close to my heart," Jones said in a statement Wednesday.
"Duncan Jones is such a dynamic directing force, and the team he has assembled in front of and behind the camera will continue to reinvigorate the science-fiction genre. It will be exciting to share this film with Netflix audiences around the world next year," added Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer.
