"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.
The long-awaited action epic hits screens in June. However, it's not the only special arrival coming next month that Jones is looking forward to -- he's also expecting to welcome his first child with wife Rodene Ronquillo!
"I'm so excited," Jones gushed, revealing that their baby is due "within a week or two" of his film's release. "So it's going to be a crazy June."
Jones said that, while he's "incredibly excited" about Warcraft, he's already done "all the hard work," and now the film is "on its way [and] it will do its own thing." What he's really going to be focusing on now is the brand new project of fatherhood.
"I've got this other baby [that] I' ve got to be, you know, responsible for and worrying about now," Jones explained.
