Duncan Jones Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones was born on the 30th of May, 1971, in Bromley, Kent, England to musician David Bowie (real name David Robert Jones) and his first wife, the former model, Angela Bowie (née Barnett). As a child, he was known as Zowie, and then, in his teens, as Joey, or Joe, before reverting to his birth name at around age eighteen. He is a producer, screenwriter, and director, perhaps particularly known for his direction of the sci-fi film “Moon” in 2009.

A successful filmmaker, and only son of a music superstar, how rich is Duncan Jones? Sources estimate Jones’s net worth at $20 million. His father, David Bowie, who died in 2016, is reported to have left most of his $100 million fortune to his second wife and two children, with Jones receiving twenty five per cent of his estate.

Jones grew up in several different places, including London, Berlin, and Switzerland. When his parents divorced in 1980, Jones’s father was granted full custody, and he became estranged from his mother at the age of thirteen. At fourteen, Jones attended, the exclusive and prestigious Gordonstoun boarding school in Scotland. In 1992, he was best man at his father’s second wedding.

In 1995, Jones graduated from the College of Wooster, Ohio, with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. Though his first ambition as a child had been to become a professional wrestler, he went on to study at the London Film School, where he wrote and shot his first short film, “Whistle”. It was screened at the Brest European Short Film Festival. He graduated from the institution in 2001.

He got a start in the entertainment industry working as a cameraman, at his father’s fiftieth birthday party at Madison Square Garden, New York. He went on, in 2006, to direct a campaign for the fashion company French Connection, which featured two women, representing fashion and style, fighting and kissing. It proved to be rather controversial, receiving one hundred and twenty seven complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority, but certainly also establishing his net worth.

In 2009, Jones’s first full-length feature, the science fiction film, “Moon”, starring Sam Rockwell and Kevin Spacey, was awarded a BAFTA for “Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director, or Producer”. His subsequent films include 2011’s “Source Code”, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and 2016’s “Warcraft”, based on the video game series of the same name. His next film, scheduled for release in 2017, will be called “Mute”, and has been described as a “spiritual sequel” to “Moon”.

In his personal life, to this day Jones maintains no relationship with his mother. Through his father’s second marriage, he is the stepson of supermodel Iman Abdulmajid, and half-brother to their child, Alexandria. He was reportedly the inspiration for his father’s songs “Kooks” and “Oh! You Pretty Things”. He married photographer Rodene Ronquillo in 2012, on the same day she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The couple have both worked to raise awareness of the disease, and in one campaign, raised in excess of $11,000 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They have one child, a son, whose middle name, “David”, is in memory of Jones’s father.
