Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard have joined the cast of Duncan Jones’ long-gestating dream project “Mute” at Lotus Entertainment.
Set in Berlin four decades in the future, the now immigrant-filled city has become a real mix of East meets West culture. Skarsgard plays a mute bartender who goes up against his city’s gangsters and deep into the city’s underworld in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.
Rudd plays one of a pair of strange American surgeons who may be the only clue the bartender may have to the truth. Jones and Mike Johnson penned the script while Stuart Fenegan will produce.
Jones is currently in post-production on the epic fantasy game adaptation “Warcraft” for Universal Pictures.
