Robert Rodriguez has a virtual slew of projects…
The 49-year-old Mexican American filmmaker, best known for helming From Dusk til Dawn and Sin City, is working on several virtual reality film projects.
He announced the news after revealing the first glimpse of his forthcoming VR action thriller The Limit.
Rodriguez was at MIP TV in Cannes to attend a panel session about the nascent technology and lift the lid on the challenges of producing content for the format.
He offered attendees the first look at the trailer for The Limit, which stars Michelle Rodriguez as a genetically enhanced weapon of mass destruction hell bent on destroying the covert agency that created her.
It’s produced by Rodriguez’s Double R Productions, which he set up with his son Racer, and will premiere on STX Entertainment’s VR channel STXsurreal, run by Rick Rey and Andy Vick.
The app launches on VR headsets in mid 2018.
