Oscar-Winner Anthony Hopkins to Release his New Film as NFT on Vuele Platform
Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins’ latest picture, “Vuele,” will be tokenized and offered on a new NFT marketplace for films. Hopkins, who has won two Oscars and two Emmys for his work in films such as Silence of the Lambs, The Elephant Man, the Thor trilogy, and The Father, has had a distinguished career. Enderby Entertainment, an independent film funding and production firm, created the latest movie “Zero Contact.” The narrative follows five people from around the world who are “connected solely by their love to tech giant Finley Hart (Hopkins),” as per Enderby.
The five protagonists uncover a covert innovation by the technology firm and work together to close it down since it has the potential to be “either the answer to humanity’s woes or the end of life on this planet.”
During the early waves of the worldwide pandemic in 2020, Zero Contact was shot virtually in 17 different countries, and the film making largely depended on Zoom to film sequences. Cam Cannon wrote the script, which will be released on Vuele in late July or early August.

Enderby producer/director Rick Dugdale remarked, “The whole of this picture is unusual, from the manner we filmed it utilizing Zoom and virtual production through its dissemination.” The film’s Vuele marketing will contain up to NFT five drops, and will “feature the film, plus additional that will differ from token to token to generate different pricing points.” Enderby selected NFTs to release the film because the core technology allows the company to establish demonstrable “scarcity in copies of the picture, and safeguards against piracy,” according to Dugdale.
The Vuele Marketplace focuses on film distribution and consumption, with users having the option of purchasing material in either crypto or fiat cash. At this time, Zero Contact seems to be the only venture mentioned, and the company hasn’t said which blockchain the marketplace is based on. “Members will be able to buy and view feature-length films and long coveted material, including backstage and just never video, extra features, unique Q&As, #filmobilia, and much more,” according to Vuele’s website.
