Nicolas Cage is perfect for A24
Nicolas Cage He is one of the actors who most divides critics and viewers, and there are moments when it is not known if he exaggerates with his work or is achieving something surprising. For several years, the actor focused on low-quality films to get out of financial difficulties, or at least that is what he has said, but among these proposals there have also been films that really demonstrate why he has the status he has in Hollywood. Titles like Mandy – 92%, Pig – 94%, The weight of talent – 95% or up to Renfield: Vampire Assistant – 74% make it clear that he is a very complete and interesting performer who is perfect for strange roles and stories.
Many A24 fans have been waiting for a collaboration with Cage for a long time, as the production company seems to offer perfect plots for an actor like him. The interpreter himself commented in some interviews that he found Ari Aster one of the most interesting directors today and he really wanted to work with him soon. The dreams of many were fulfilled when it was announced that Cage would star in a film about a man who appears in people’s dreams and that the story would be left in the hands of Aster, although this later changed and he remained as producer of the project.
Watch the first trailer here Dream Scenario:
Dream Scenario is directed by Kristoffer Borgli, best known for Sick of Me – 80%, with an original script that was also his responsibility. At first, A24’s plan was for Aster to take the lead on the project because he was one of the most trusted figures in the company, but the writer spoke seriously with him to convince him to give him that place and thus have more control of the story and its own vision of it. The person responsible for Midsommar: Terror Doesn’t Wait For The Night – 98% was the one who approached Cage to offer him the main role, and he was always the first option for Borgli, although there was once thought of developing the film with Adam Sandler as the protagonist.

What is ‘Dream Scenario’ about?
Dream Scenario tells the story of Paul Matthews, a fairly normal and boring biology teacher who for some reason begins to appear in people’s dreams. What at first is perceived as a strange and even funny coincidence, soon causes a change in his daily life and leads him to encounter fame, but also with its sad consequences. The fact that his name and face are popularized through dreams seems like an unreal way to give recognition to his empty existence, since everyone seems to love him and love him, as usually happens with figures who become celebrities overnight.
As is also the case with this type of personality, fame is never absolute and can also bring serious personal problems. In the case of Dream Scenario, the problem is that in some of the dreams in which he appears, Paul hurts people, which begins to generate suspicion even though they are only dream events without a hint of reality. The protagonist’s insistence on keeping everything afloat so as not to feel lost again will put his most precious relationships with his wife and daughter at risk.
Dream Scenario is a rather peculiar comedy about the fragility of fame and the need for recognition in our daily lives and profession. During its time at the Toronto International Film Festival, the film was very well received by critics and is already one of the most anticipated premieres of the season. Everything indicates that the film will arrive in a limited way in theaters in the United States on November 10, but at the moment there is no news about its distribution in other countries or if the public will have to wait for it at the beginning of next year.
