Duncan Jones Next Project is a Graphic Novel Titled Madi

Moon and Mute director Duncan Jones has committed to making a movie based on the 2000AD comic book Rogue Trooper but the last update we got on that project was back in January of 2019. While that project appears to be stalling a bit Jones is now working with legendary comic creator and innovator, and former Bleeding Cool columnist, Alex De Campi on a new sci-fi graphic novel that is to form the third part of his thematic sci-fi trilogy, following Moon and Mute, named Madi: Once Upon A Time In The Future.

And he specifically calls out Glenn Fabry, who worked with Jones on Mute as a comic for Dark Horse Presents before the whole project was repurposed into a movie.

And a little chatter since…

David Bowie was an appreciator of fine comic books, the photo of him reading Viz on the train still gets a lot of play and it very much appears that he spread that love to Jones.
