EXCLUSIVE: Plot details for A24’s new film ‘Dream Scenario’ have surfaced as the film continues production in Toronto. A filming notice has posted this summary of the movie:
“Dream Scenario” follows the story of a schlubby professor whose life never really panned out for him. He suddenly becomes an overnight celebrity after appearing in every person on Earth’s dream. As the following days continue and he is relishing in his newfound fame, sinister themes begin to arise and haunt his own dreams and take him down a nightmarish path.
Dream Scenario also stars Julianne Nicholson, Dylan Baker, Kate Berlant, Michael Cera, Dylan Gegula, and Tim Meadows.
The film is written and directed by Kristoffer Borgli, whose film Sick of Myself premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May to rave reviews. Ari Aster (director of Hereditary and Midsommar) and Lars Knudsen will produce under their new production company Square Peg alongside A24.
