{Claire} Crisis S & S #1: "Gary Oldman, Evangeline Lilly Team for Opioid Thriller 'Dreamland'" - The Hollywood Reporter


the film, making its market debut in berlin, comes from 'arbitrage' writer-director nicholas jarecki.

The european film market just got a little more star-studded thanks to gary oldman, armie hammer and evangeline lilly, who are set to team up for dreamland, an "opioid thriller" from nicholas jarecki and the follow-up to his 2012 debut arbitrage.

German actress veronica ferres will also star in the project, written by jarecki and billed as the first theatrical film to tackle the international opioid crisis. Principal photography is underway in montreal and detroit, with lisa wilson due to introduce buyers to the project in berlin through her solution entertainment group. William morris endeavor represents u.s. Rights with lgna legal.

In dreamland, three stories about the world of opioids collide: 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— all in a thinking person's gangster tale of high and low.

“the devastating impact of the opioid crisis reaches all corners of society,” said jarecki, who saw arbitrage, starring richard gere, become both a critical and commercial hit, setting a record as the highest-grossing independent day and date release of all time. “gary, armie and evangeline are the perfect performers to bring the human face of this epidemic to audiences everywhere.”

producers are jarecki and cassian elwes (dallas buyers club), who financed together through jarecki’s green room films and its continuing relationship with mufg union bank. Michael suppes and tony hsieh executive produce along with douglas urbanski. Mohammed al turki, lisa wilson, william rosenfeld, sam slater, and david bernon also executive produce. Co-executive producers are kean cronin, robert kapp, and samuel reich.

Dreamland is a production of green room films in association with tuesday films, matisse pictures, construction film and burn later productions, and is a canadian-belgian co-production of les productions lod and bideford productions.

I found this :

It was just announced that Lily-Rose Depp, Michelle Rodriguez, and Greg Kinnear will join the existing cast of Armie Hammer, Greg Oldman, and Evangeline Lilly. The film sheds light on the opioid crisis from the varying perspectives of each character, woven into three colliding stories. According to Deadline, it looks like Hammer will play a drug trafficker with “a multi-cartel Fentanyl smuggling operation between Canada and the U.S.” Depp, meanwhile, takes on the role of his younger sister, "a brilliant young woman in a desperate hour." The two will clash with Rodriguez, who plays a DEA supervisor, and Lilly who’s recovering from an OxyContin addiction. The plot thickens.

“The devastating impact of the opioid crisis reaches all corners of society…” Jarecki said. “It’s a testament to the issue’s urgency that such a large group of gifted performers have come together for our film. The opioid epidemic is a worldwide problem which needs our attention now.”
