Fourteen More Films Set On A Desktop Planned

Movie News

 

Wanted” director Timur Bekmambetov has found himself the godfather of a whole new sub-genre of filmmaking dubbed ‘Screen Life,’ one in which the entire film’s narrative unfolds across a computer desktop.

The trend began with horror thrillers – both the Elijah Wood-led “Open Windows” and the Bekmambetov-produced “Unfriended” in 2014 and 2015 respectively, the latter scoring a sequel which opened this year.

However it’s the more recent and less scare-inducing efforts that have achieved big success critically, like the ISIS recruiter-themed “Profile” which has played well at festivals, and the upcoming John Cho-led kidnap drama “Searching” which has ended up as one of the year’s more acclaimed films. Bekmambetov serves as a producer on both.

Speaking with The LA Times this week, Bekmambetov has revealed that he is doubling down on the format and developing fourteen more films in the same style saying these type of films are very character-driven and he’s branching out to include other genres like comedies and romantic comedies in the near future.

“Searching” opens in cinemas this coming Friday.
