Nic Cage is collaborating with Ari Aster & A24 on a film about a professor who appears in everyone’s dream


Wait, you mean you haven’t been dreaming about Nic Cage regularly?

Nicolas Cage’s renaissance in recent years has brought audiences cinematic treats ranging from the brutally absurd Mandy to the hilariously hyper-reflective The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. The scene-munching actor’s revival continues, with the first images and details of his upcoming role in A24 film Dream Scenario reminding us how welcome the star’s resurgence to stardom is.

A24 favorite Ari Aster (Hereditary and Midsommar fame) steps out from behind the camera and takes on the role of producer. It will be written and directed by Norwegian filmmaker Kristoffer Borgli, who is making his English language feature film debut with Dream Scenario.

The film, which has been billed as a comedy and is due to start shooting in late December, will see Cage as an aging professor who appears in everyone’s dreams one night and becomes an instant celebrity as a result. A strong cast of supporting actors is also included, including Michael Cera, Julianne Nicholson and Tim Meadows. The details of the film’s plot are still being held under wraps, along with all of the character names and the exact release date.

In the first images released from the set, Cage appears almost unrecognizable as the bald, bespectacled, bearded protagonist in quintessential professor’s attire. While the legendary actor’s comedy brand isn’t always intentional, the combined efforts with Aster, the prestigious A24 and Borgil’s already proven strong writing are poised to capitalize on Cage’s strengths in the right way.

Dream Scenario is poised to become another notch in A24’s impressive catalog and in Nic Cage’s revitalized career. The film is slated to hit theaters in 2024. Nic Cage is collaborating with Ari Aster & A24 on a film about a professor who appears in everyone’s dream
