Duncan Jones, the director of the highly anticipated, eagerly awaited and even impatiently envisioned “The Moon”, starring the excellent Mr. Sam Rockwell, has spoken the words “Blade Runner”. As I am highly attuned to the phrase, my data mining implant has brought you this Popular Mechanics interview in which he waxes nostalgic on the beloved epic Sci-Fi classic.
It looks like I’m going to be doing another science-fiction film next. I love Blade Runner, it’s one of my favorite films, and I’ve always been really… depressed that there was never — not a sequel, because I don’t think it’s right to make a sequel about Blade Runner, but no one’s really tried to make a film which was set in the same kind of world or had that same kind of field. So that’s what I’m doing, a big-city mystery story that takes place in a future Berlin.
A future Berlin. I like it. Berlin is prime real estate for Sci-Fi re-imagining. The Moon is going to make a big splash and I predict great things for Mr.Jones. Click through to the Popular Mechanics interview and geek out to the nerdy details of lunar concrete construction and the molecular fun to be had mining Helium 3 on the dark side of the moon.
