While ‘Mute‘ is expected to thrill audiences on Netflix, we shouldn’t expect a sequel showing up! Duncan Jones, the film’s creator, has been working on the film’s release in one stage or another for 16 years so now that it is finally here, it makes sense that a follow up isn’t the first thing on his mind.
When asked outright if he would do a ‘Mute 2,’ Jones gave a very straightforward answer, “No.”
Jones was then asked if the reason was because he didn’t enjoy doing sequels outside of ‘Warcraft’ (if that ever happens) and he responded:
“Well, I mean, we have ‘Warcraft’ or ‘Source Code.’ I mean, a lot of people were talking about ‘Source Code 2,’ and that was financially ready to go, but I just think that ‘Source Code’ really worked, I think, beautifully as a standalone movie. And maybe … I’ve moved on from it. I’ve kind of wanted to do other things now. And with ‘Mute,’ this has been a boulder I’ve been trying to push up a hill for such a long time. I kind of feel like that’s done now. I wanna try something completely new next. And again, maybe it just goes back to my background and how my daddy raised me, but he always said to push yourself into new things. And that’s kinda what I wanna do.”
With ‘Mute’ taking 16 years in the making, you can imagine that Jones has other ideas in his mind that he’d like to dive into. While we don’t know if ‘Warcraft 2‘ is going to happen, there are plenty of opportunities for the director out there.
