Will Byers has escaped the Upside Down and is headed to virtual reality.
Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp has joined the voice cast for the upcoming VR adaptation of Wolves In The Walls, based on the story by Neil Gaiman (Coraline, American Gods). Schnapp will voice the brother of main character Lucy. The second chapter of the series is set to premiere in April. The series director, Pete Billington, had this to say about Schnapp’s addition:
“We believe that Noah Schnapp brings a special quality to the brother role. As soon as he read his first line, we were smitten. We love him in Stranger Things and can’t wait for audiences to hear his performance in Wolves in the Walls.”
The immersive entertainment company behind the production of Wolves In The Walls is Fable. They shared the casting news with Variety before the Sundance Film Festival. The company will be using the film festival to announce their new focus on virtual beings, which will be AI-powered characters that respond and interact with the audience. Fable co-founder and executive producer Edward Saatchi told Variety “we are changing the make-up of our team radically to add machine learning folks.”
The AI technology Fable has in mind will be introduced this summer in Whispers In The Night, which will be considered a spin-off of Wolves In The Walls.
