ADR for John Travolta’s Feature Film, Speed Kills
The VR version was a collaboration with TopDogVR and stars the feature film’s Travolta, Kellan Lutz, Katheryn Winnick and Jordi Mollà. (Check out a clip of Travolta and Winnick above.) It also includes Jennifer Esposito, Matthew Modine, James Remar, Michael Weston and Amaury Nolasco. It is being touted as one of the longest cinematic VR features brought on the market to date.
The Speed Kills VR Experience will be cut into eight parts and delivered to platforms (iOS, Android, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, STEAM) in episodic format early next year, using a customized movie-themed VR environment that will available as a free, downloadable app.
Saban Film already acquired North American rights to the action thriller at Cannes this year. The John Luessenhop-directed pic, loosely based on the life of speedboat racing champion Don Aronow, is now in postproduction with plans to be screened at the Berlin Film Festival, then released worldwide next spring or summer. Hannibal Classics Worldwide is repping it.
Lutz plays Robbie Reemer, a speedboat racing, drug-running kingpin. In one VR scene, Lutz’s character and his crew execute a drug deal out at sea — this will be part of Episode 3 of the series. The filmmakers used VR drones and VR cameras strapped to speed boats racing on the open water.
