Black Filmmaker Lyron Foster Announces CGI Cast for 'In the Re-Beginning'

Due to COVID-19, production is taking a new direction in creating the highly anticipated film

Honolulu, Jul 31, 2020 ( - COVID-19 has significantly impacted the production of television series and movies, causing shutdowns on-site and closing movie theaters around the world. Lyron Foster, the African American filmmaker behind the highly anticipated film 'In the Re-Beginning,' has taken his production in a new direction. Now, he says the film will instead feature a completely CGI created world and cast. Using this strategy, Foster will avoid the challenges currently being faced by on-set production. 

"We have decided to move forward in production with a fully CGI cast," said Foster, who will also hold a role in the film. "This choice was made due to safety and production concerns related to COVID-19."

'In the Re-Beginning' will be a feature-length movie in the fantasy and sci-fi genre, designed to appeal to a wide variety of audiences. Initially, Foster planned for the movie to be filmed in Hawaii, Texas, and New York City. Instead, the entire film will be completely digitized. 

The production team behind 'In the Re-Beginning' will be digitizing the entire film using Unreal Engine, a popular 3-D creation platform that has been used widely for immersive video games. Foster is thrilled to be using this exciting technology to bring 'In the Re-Beginning' to life. 

In addition, the production team will leverage motion capture technology for realistic animation. 

The film's original cast will be voicing the digitally created characters, which share their likeness, to ensure the original artistic vision is not compromised despite the change in platform.

Foster says 'In the Re-Beginning' will feature a multi-ethnic cast situated in a variety of roles designed to challenge the pervasive stereotypes currently present in media and entertainment. Outside of filmmaking, Foster is also an author, coder, actor, musician, and Tech Entrepreneur. 

Updates on the film are being posted on Twitter at @LyronFoster and @ReBeginningFilm. More information can be found at

Aug 15, 2020

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024.

Putin’s proposed constitutional reforms, announced...

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Aug 15, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Aug 15, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Aug 15, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
