Legendary and Alejandro G. Iñárritu
to Create New Virtual Reality Project

After four years of development, two-time Academy Award® winning director Alejandro G. Iñárritu is commencing work on an experimental short virtual reality film to be produced and financed by Legendary Entertainment and Fondazione Prada. ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s recently established Immersive Entertainment division, will build the virtual world and characters.

Harnessing powerful technology, Iñárritu and frequent collaborator, three-time Oscar® winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, will experiment for their first time within a space narrative in this new visual medium.

The immersive virtual reality piece will explore the intense and excruciating experience of a group of immigrants and refugees crossing the border between Mexico and the United States.
