STXsurreal, the VR division acquired by Robert Simonds’ STX Entertainment in 2016, announced today that it has wrapped production on The Limit, a live-action, short-form virtual reality series from award-winning filmmaker Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City), and starring actress Michelle Rodriguez (Fast and Furious franchise, Resident Evil). The Limit will premiere on STX’s previously-announced pay-per-experience VR channel, Surreal, launching as an app on VR headsets in mid-2018.

Written, directed, and produced by Robert Rodriguez, The Limit is a first-person POV action series that 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 the Double R Productions studio in Austin, Texas.

“The Limit first-of-its-kind kind series in a new format that delivers a blockbuster, lean-back cinematic experience that audiences can’t find anywhere else in the VR marketplace right now,” said Rick Rey, Co-President of STXsurreal. “By assembling entertainment’s most sought after writers, directors, and actors we have a shot at changing the VR industry, and the combination of Robert and Michelle is a perfect example of what STX is cooking up. It’s one hell of a ride,” added Andy Vick, Co-President of STXsurreal.

Added Rodriguez, “I’m a huge fan of VR, and I started Double R Productions with Racer Max to create innovative content for the medium. For us to be making our first project with Rick, Andy and the Surreal team is a great way to kick things off. And it was a thrill to be working with the awesome Michelle Rodriguez again in this exciting entertainment space.”
