Duncan Jones Won’t Reconcile With Estranged Mother Angie Bowie

Moviemaker Duncan Jones has no plans to reconnect with his estranged mother Angie, insisting he doesn’t “miss her” in his life.

Angie married rocker David Bowie in 1970 and they welcomed their son a year later (71). The couple divorced in 1980 and the musician was granted custody of their son.  Jones continued to see his mother during school breaks, but “stopped having contact” with her as a teen – and he doesn’t regret the decision.
He tells Britain’s The Times,

“I don’t miss her and don’t feel I have missed anything by not having her in my life.

“I don’t remember my mother and father being together. I remember going between houses for holidays, and at 13 I stopped having contact with her. It wasn’t healthy.

“Over the years I’ve attempted contact but it’s like getting a shock to my fingers. I know now not to bother.”

David Bowie’s Son Turned Down Superman

David Bowie’s moviemaker son Duncan Jones has revealed he turned down the chance to direct the new Superman film – because he didn’t feel he was ready to take charge of a blockbuster.

The Moon director took himself out of the running for the film after meeting with the franchise’s new mastermind, Christopher Nolan.  Jones tells CinemaBlend.com,

“I think, maybe, I’m not quite ready for that scale of project and that scale of expectation from an audience that is already existing and is waiting to see the next generation of Superman film. It’s a hard one.

“Superman was so big that I think I was a little intimidated by it and sort of backed out.”

Fussy Jones also backed out of the chance to tackle comic book hero Judge Dredd on the big screen.  He adds,

“I’m also a big Judge Dredd fan, which was another one that came my way… Judge Dredd, I really thought about and it ended up not being right for me because I had such strong feelings and opinions on what I wanted that film to be.

“Although I really like what they’re going to do with it, it’s not the film that I was going to make. So that one wasn’t going to work out.”

300 and Watchmen director Zack Snyder is now onboard the Superman projects, while Pete Travis is reworking Judge Dredd with actor Karl Urban.
