Emmett Furla Oasis Films is producing Martin Scorsese's Silence next year.

US producer-financier Emmett Furla Oasis Films (EFO Films) has opened an office in Dubai and will shoot two productions in the region within the next 18 months, it has been reported.

EFO Films was formed by the recent merger between Emmett/Furla Films and Oasis Ventures Entertainment, part of the Oasis Ventures group of companies, with offices in New York, Los Angeles and the Cayman Islands, Screen International reported.

“It’s an honour for us to be able to have a footprint in this region, as it is rich with new film opportunities for us filmmakers. We look forward to working with local partners and being a part of the Dubai community,” EFO Films co-CEO Randall Emmett, who worked with Hollywood superstar Mark Wahlberg for several years, was quoted as saying.

The two productions that will shoot in the region have yet to be decided, the report added.

More than 70 films have been produced by EFO Films, which have earned more than $500,000,000 worldwide at the box office to-date.

Currently, the company is in production on action thriller The Prince, starring Bruce Willis, Jason Patric and John Cusack.

In 2014, EFO Films also starts production on Martin Scorsese’s Silence, the movie adaption of Monopoly and horror thriller Hotel 33.
