Duncan Jones: 'Dad saw Warcraft shortly before he died'

Duncan Jones, son of the late-David Bowie and director of the fantastic Moon and Source Code, has admitted that his dad saw a cut of his latest film, Warcraft shortly before he died.

Speaking in an interview, he spoke of his dad.

“For everyone else, he was one person. For me, he was my dad. He was always interested in things I was working on. So I showed him what I was working on, and he was all excited for me. He was happy that I was doing the thing that I enjoy doing in my life.”

Jones also admitted he took on the weighty fantasy film to “broaden out the spectrum” away from fantasy movies that mimic Lord Of The Rings. He said: “We tried to tell a story that was different from a Tolkien fantasy, where the creatures and the humans are the good guy and the monsters are the bad guys. Fantasy films all kind of want to be Lord Of The Rings.”

Warcraft is in cinemas now.
