Hey guys, Jana here,
Netflix is putting together another feature that will only bolster their stronghold on original programming. ‘Mute‘ is going to fit right into their stable as an original, futuristic thriller. Filmmaker Duncan Jones (‘Warcraft: The Beginning‘) is crafting a whole new universe in which to tell this mind-bending story.
Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly. A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.
The film is set to debut sometime this year on Netflix.
