The found footage subgenre is a favorite of many horror fans due the way it pulls viewers into the action. Now, Doron and Yoav Paz are taking things a step further with their upcoming sequel to their 2015 film JeruZalem, which has already been green-lighted by financier and distributor Epic Pictures Group.
Deadline reports that writer/directors Doron and Yoav Paz will be incorporating “…an extensive virtual reality component in which viewers can immerse themselves in the film.”
The team at Epic Pictures helped us realize our dream of scaring the shit out of people all over the world!” The Paz brothers stated. “We’re thrilled to partner with them again for JeruZalem 2 – this time with a virtual reality element that opens up a whole new world of creative opportunities for us as filmmakers.
Last month Google and IMAX announced last month that a new VR camera was being developed. Epic also met with possible new Virtual Reality partners at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo).
There have been no details announced about casting, plot or filming locations, but as soon as we know more we will let you know.
