The film will take place in the same universe as Moon, Sam Rockwell character will even get a cameo in the new film Jones reveals:
Are you working on your next film yet?
I'm trying to. The script is good - and it's gone out to some actors, and if we get the actors we want hopefully that will help us get the finance. That's really the problem right now because, as I said, we made Moon for about 5 million U.S dollars and the next film we want to make for a slightly bigger budget - you know, around fifteen to twenty million dollars. We're going to have to get a studio involved or, if we go the independent route, we're going to have to get a hot lead through one of the actors that we've got attached. That's really the tricky bit - financing it.
You said Sam was onboard this one?
He is. He's going to be coming back and doing a little cameo; it's just a small part. He'll be coming back and playing the character that he plays in Moon. It's just a little epilogue moment that'll be in the background action of the film. It's science-fiction as well this one - it takes place in the same timeline, but it actually takes place in a future Berlin, so it's a city film and it's very much like Blade Runner. Technically, there is no Blade Runner sequel but technically, spiritually and aesthetically anyone who loves Blade Runner is going to really enjoy Mute.
