    Oscar-winning director Alejandro G. Inarritu (The Revenant, Birdman) has started work on a new virtual reality short film that will follow a group of immigrants and refugees crossing the border from Mexico to the United States.

    The untitled film was financed by Warcraft studio Legendary and Fondazione Prada, according to Deadline. Star Wars studio Lucasfilm's "immersive entertainment" division, ILMxLAB, is creating the world and its characters.

    Teaming with Inarritu for the movie is Emmanuel Lubezki, who won an Oscar for The Revenant. The new VR film is said to have been in the works for four years now.

    There is no word yet on how the movie will be released, though Oculus Rift and HTC Vive seem like they could be possibilities. No release date for the movie has been announced.

    Inarritu is one of the first big-name directors to sign up to make a movie for VR, which is still in its early days.
