First Mute concept art online

An image from Duncan Jones' latest

You all know how much we love Duncan Jones' Moon. So the chance to see the tiniest snippet from his next film, Mute, has us giddier than 17 Twilight-obsessed schoolgirls on a Team Edward pilgrimage.

And this concept art - dug up by the Slash Film lads at Jones' Liberty Films site - has a distinct Blade Runner feel to it, which isn't all that shocking considering Jones' love for the film and Mute's future noir tone.

The plot finds a mute bartender searching for his girlfriend, who has been abducted by forces unknown. But the big villains of the piece - likely tied to her disappearance - are apparently a comedy double act.

Mitchell & Webb as villains, anyone? Okay, maybe not.

Still, we're eager for Jones to get cracking early next year on his story, set in a futuristic Berlin, which he's penned with regular co-writer Mike Johnson.

Moon was the work of a filmmaker to watch. Hopefully Mute will keep the faith…
