Russia’s Oscar Selection Committee has selected Fedor Bondarchuk’s “Stalingrad” as its entry for the foreign-language Oscar category.

The 3D World War II action film, which is distribbed worldwide by Sony, was shot on a $30 million budget. The film is lead produced by Alexander Rodnyansky, who is one of the producers of “Machete Kills.”

Bondarchuk confirmed Friday that his next film will be “The Durov Code,” which is a biopic about the founder of VKontakte, Russia’s Facebook.
