@Wampa1: You've come to a proper conclusion about this. Jones has been trying to get a future Berlin noir about a mute bartender searching for his business partner in a city of gangsters off the ground for a while now. That sounds like his love child project, considering how he's stated in interviews that it's his love letter to Blade Runner. Nobody was giving him money to make it so he's had the film shelved for some years now.
Also, dude is currently writing a biopic about Ian Fleming. I'm sure we'll see him taking advantage of budget prestige after this.
