Gary Oldman to star in opioid thriller 'Dreamland'
Gary Oldman, Armie Hammer and Evangeline Lilly are set to team up for ‘Dreamland’, an "opioid thriller" from Nicholas Jarecki and the follow-up to his 2012 debut ‘Arbitrage’.
In ‘Dreamland’, three stories about the world of opioids collide. A drug trafficker arranges a multi-cartel Fentanyl smuggling operation between Canada and the US, 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.
“Gary, Armie, and Evangeline are the perfect performers to bring the human face of this epidemic to audiences everywhere,” said writer Jarecki when asked about the project.
