Like Crazy director Drake Doremus is currently working on a project with Intel and Toshiba that features Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Topher Grace and… you. Described as an interactive social film, The Beauty Inside offers its audience a chance to play a lead role in the romantic storyline with a melancholic twist. The tale will unfold in six filmed episodes in six weeks, with audience-created content and online input on the project's Facebook page helping to shape things.
Grace narrates the film as Alex. He's a young man who wakes up every day with a different appearance — and you get to play him if you submit your audition video. If the below trailer is any indication, it seems you should prepare to have your heart broken. The first episode airs on August 16 at three p.m. PST, and you'll be treated to a new ep every week through September 20. Hopefully this unique project provides you with your Doremus fix until more reports about the filmmaker's new work — about an inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher, starring Felicity Jones, Guy Pearce, Amy Ryan, Kyle MacLachlan and Alexandra Whitworth — pop up.
