Darren Aronofsky's three-part virtual reality series Spheres -- bought for a seven-figure sum at Sundance earlier this year -- will make its world premiere at the upcoming Venice Film Festival. Adding to its sci-fi credentials is the announcement that Millie Bobby Brown, aka Eleven from Netflix series Stranger Things, will be lending her voice to the final instalment of the trilogy, Spheres: Chorus of the Cosmos.

Spheres, an immersive journey into a black hole, is the first VR project to ever land a deal of that size at Sundance -- not a huge amount by normal Hollywood standards, but evidence nonetheless that VR is slowly but surely maturing into a fully-fledged entertainment medium. It's slated for release on Oculus this fall, via CityLights, and you can probably expect wider distribution soon.
