Theroux Joins Duncan Jones’ “Mute” Cast

Justin Theroux (“The Girl on the Train,” “The Leftovers”) is set to join Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard in the Duncan Jones-directed science-fiction thriller “Mute” at Liberty Films and Netflix.

Set forty decades in the future in Berlin, Skarsgard is portraying a mute bartender in what has become a roiling city of immigrants.

Searching for a woman who has disappeared, he finds himself in the city’s underbelly with an odd pair of American surgeons seem to be the only recurring clue.

Jones and Mike Johnson penned the script while Jones and Stuart Fenegan will produce.
