Variety is reporting that Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name) and Evangeline Lilly (Ant-Man and the Wasp) are set to star in Dreamland, a thriller from writer-director Nicholas Jarecki (Arbitage).
Dreamland will feature three stories, taking place in the world of opioids – “a drug trafficker arranges a multi-cartel Fentanyl smuggling operation between Canada and the U.S., an architect recovering from an OxyContin addiction tracks down the truth behind her son’s involvement with narcotics, and a university professor battles unexpected revelations about his research employer, a drug company with deep government influence bringing a new ‘non-addictive’ painkiller to market.”
“The devastating impact of the opioid crisis reaches all corners of society,” said Jarecki. “Gary, Armie, and Evangeline are the perfect performers to bring the human face of this epidemic to audiences everywhere.”
Filming on Dreamland is now underway in Montreal and Detroit, with the film being produced by Jarecki and Cassian Elwes (Dallas Buyers Club).
