With virtual reality becoming all the rage in the world today, game developers and film makers are gearing up for the new trend. Now, it seems like Doug Liman, a critically acclaimed director known for his work in “The Bourne Identity,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Jumper,” and “Swingers,” among others, is taking an interest in joining the virtual reality fold. Entitled “Invisible,” the virtual reality miniseries is now in the works and is done in partnership with virtual reality cinema company Jaunt VR.
“Invisible” is a six-part virtual reality miniseries that’s set in modern day Manhattan. It will focus on unraveling the deepest secrets of the Ashlands, a New York City family gifted with supernatural powers passed down through generations after generations. With their power continuously growing, the birth of a new child attracts the interest of the public and their family secret may soon be exposed.
“Exceptional content is at the core of our business, and we’re always looking for innovative ways to engage audiences,” said president of Condé Nast Entertainment (CNE) Dawn Ostroff. “Virtual reality offers us a tremendous opportunity to push the boundaries of our storytelling, and provide audiences a fully-immersive viewing experience. We’re thrilled to work with Jaunt and Doug Liman on ‘Invisible,’ I can’t think of better partners to have as we embark on this exciting and cutting-edge journey.”
Melisa Wallack, who served as the writer for “The Last Witch Hunter,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” and “Meet Bill,” is the writer and creator of the show. On the other hand, Jaunt VR, CNÉ, and Samsung are the producing partners in the business.
At the moment, there’s still no official announcements as to when “Invisible” will air. However, the company plans to premiere the miniseries later this year, and each chapter can be watched via the Jaunt VR App available on the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store, and Samsung’s Gear VR.
