Set in Berlin in 2052, Mute follows a bartender named Leo (Skarsgård) who lost the ability to speak after a childhood accident. After his beloved girlfriend Naadirah (played by Seyneb Saleh) unexpectedly disappears, he sets out on a noir-ish quest to find her, diving deep into the city’s seedy, neon underworld.
The only recurring clue that Leo finds is a pair of wise-cracking American surgeons: Rudd, wearing a hell of a mustache, and Theroux, wearing a hell of a wig. Jones co-wrote the script with Michael Robert Johnson (Sherlock Holmes), and he’s said in the past that Mute is somehow connected to his 2009 debut film Moon, which stars Sam Rockwell as a man working as a solitary miner on the Earth’s moon.
Netflix signed on to distribute Mute last year, and it’s expected to hit the streaming service later in 2017. [Source]

finally coming to an end, inspired by my friend Lu at jessica-chastain.com, I thought it would be great to do a summary of this last year in regard to Paul’s career.
The year started in mid-January with Paul attending the premiere for the HBO show Vinyl, which starred his friend, Bobby Cannavale. It then continued with his appearance at the Sundance Film Festival for the premiere for his film, The Fundamentals of Caring, which was released later in the year on Netflix on June 24, 2016.
In February and March, Paul attended a couple of events, one was a benefit event for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Foundation, and the other was a premiere for the film Hello, My Name Is Doris, which was directed by his friend, Michael Showalter.
During the first week of May, Paul attended a few events, including the Met Gala 2016 and the New York screening of Captain America: Civil War, which was theatrically released during that week. Later in the month, an episode of Bob’s Burgers, which guest-starred Rudd as the voice of an imaginary horse named Jericho, aired on television.
Every year in the summer, since 2010, Paul has hosted a charity weekend with follow actors from the Kansas City area called “Big Slick Celebrity Weekend” to raise money for Children’s Mercy Hospital. This year’s event took place during June 17-18, 2016.
I’d also like to wish Paul (and you guys) a happy new year, may 2017 bring you and your families joy and happiness.

After a sojourn in big budget action territory with Warcraft, Duncan Jones is returning to his roots with Mute, a sci-fi film that will form a trilogy with his directorial debut Moon and as-yet-untitled third film.
Set in a futuristic Berlin, Mute will take place in the same universe as Moon and star Alexander Skarsgård as a mute bartender trying to track down a missing partner with the help of a surgeon played by Paul Rudd (an odd premise, yes, but an intriguing one). [Source]
