The Nicolas Cage-led A24 movie “Dream Scenario” has been announced as the opening night film of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Platform competition program.
Cage plays a schlubby professor who never made it and becomes an overnight celebrity after appearing in everyone’s dreams. The project is dubbed a “surrealist satire-comedy” about social media culture and its impact on our day-to-day interactions.
Michael Cera, Julianne Nicholson, Tim Meadows, Kate Berlant, Dylan Baker, and Dylan Gelula co-star.
A24 has also announced a release date for “The Zone of Interest” with the project getting a limited release in the U.S. on December 8th following its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The film marks the long-awaited return of “Under the Skin,” “Birth” and “Sexy Beast” writer/director Jonathan Glazer. Christian Friedel and Sandra Hüller star.
The story follows the commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, as they strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the infamous concentration camp.
“The Zone of Interest” had its world premiere at Cannes back in May to rave reviews, and won the prestigious Grand Prix award.
