Moon is an SF film currently shooting at Shepperton Studios. Directed by Duncan Jones the film stars Sam Rockwell.
Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter while stranded on the moon for a three-year period.
Jones is the son of David Bowie, his full name being Duncan Zowie Heywood Jones, know to some as Zowie Bowie. Jones says he a huge fan of Alien, Outland and Silent Running and that's the sort of look and feel he's going for. The sets for the moonbase have a nice look from what we got to see in the report, one or two of them reminded me of the Hyperdrive sets, and like those sets which I visited during series 1 in Manchester, the sets on Moon look to be very self enclosed. They appear to have marking that are very reminiscent of those in Alien and Outland.
The report said that the set shooting was almost complete and then they were moving onto green screen work. The film has a release date of May 25th 2009, so quite a while to wait. I'd love to see a really nice low key SF film with an interesting premise rather than an overblown FX epic. Hopefully Moon will be a good movie, I think Sam Rockwell is a cool actor, and the report says in this film he gets to play clones.
