Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has mounted an original first-person POV virtual reality action series called The Limit in which Michelle Rodriguez will star. The Limit will premiere on STX’s previously announced pay-per-experience VR channel Surreal which launches an app on VR headsets in mid 2018. STXsurreal, the VR division acquired by Robert Simonds’ STX Entertainment in 2016, is behind the live-action, short-form virtual reality series from their Ugly Dolls director/producer.
Written, directed, and produced by Robert Rodriguez, The Limit follows Michelle Rodriguez as she plays a genetically enhanced weapon of mass destruction hellbent on destroying the covert agency that created her. The series, co-written by Racer Max, is a wholly original concept built from the ground-up as a native VR experience, and is being produced in a new cinematic VR format that bridges the gap between traditional widescreen and 360-degree video. It went into production in late January at Robert Rodriguez’s Double R Productions in Austin and just wrapped this month.
