“It’s going to be very confusing for people until they see it. It’s something I’ve been working on in the background for three and half years and that I’m really excited about. If it works, if it works for the audience, it’s a way of doing things that I think has enormous potential for people who think a certain way. In a way, I’m very conscious of the fact that this is the first iteration of it,” Soderbergh commented, noting that if it catches on, other filmmakers can push the technology forward. “I can already see its potential and I know I’m making a cave painting but it’s exciting at the same time because it’s like, ‘Oh, man, some friends of mine that I know when they get their hands on this are going to do some crazy shit’.”
The director didn't reveal any plot details, but admitted his desire to try to push narrative forward: “It’s not a technical idea that we’re now trying to put a story on top of. It grew out of an interest in trying to push storytelling in a different direction and coming up with technology that allows us to do it. It all originated from people who were thinking about story — the hope is the experience of it will be very organic and not technical.”
The project is reportedly half shot and will probably be released in early 2017. Devin Ratray, Paul Reubens, and Beau Bridges also star.
