Steven Soderbergh is developing a new HBO movie called Mosaic that will be an experimental project that allows the audience to choose the ending. The movie will star Sharon Stone and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), and there will be an app tied to the movie which will give viewers the ability to determine how the story ends. The filmmaker released the following statement:
“I believe the good people at HBO are genuinely enthusiastic about Mosaic for two reasons: first, it represents a fresh way of experiencing a story and sharing that experience with others; second, it will require a new Emmy category, and we will be the only eligible nominee.”
I'm really curious to see how this actually works. I love it when filmmakers try to be innovating like this, and it's great that HBO is supporting it. Most studios don't support originality and change. Mosaic is set to star shooting next month in Utah.
