ETonline EXCLUSIVE: Duncan Jones Says Late Father David Bowie Was 'Proud' of Him, Is 'Ex
Filmmaker Duncan Jones is opening up about his late father, music legend David Bowie, and how he felt about his upcoming directorial effort, Warcraft.
"He was just excited for me to be branching out and trying out different things," Jones shared with ET's Angelique Jackson at a press junket on Wednesday.
The 44-year-old BAFTA Award-winning filmmaker, best known for his indie sci-fi projects Moon and Source Code, is currently anticipating the release of his fantasy epic Warcraft, a live-action adaptation of the beloved massive multiplayer online role playing game.
"[My dad] taught me a lot of things, but one of them was to be brave and to go with what feels right. And for me, you know, having an opportunity to do this [film] felt right," Jones explained.
Bowie died of cancer in January at the age of 69, but before his death, the "Space Oddity" singer was able to see what his son had been working on with his new film.
"He got the chance to see an early rough cut, and, you know, he's a dad, so he was proud," Jones said. "He was proud back then and I'm sure he would have been proud of the finished one."
