The photos give us our first look at Nicolas Cage’s untitled lead character as the Oscar winner undergoes yet another hair transformation. His character has previously been described as a “scabby professor who becomes famous after inexplicably appearing in everyone’s dreams”.
A dream scenario The script and direction are signed by Kristoffer Borgli. Further details about its plot and characters are still being kept under wraps. Joining Cage will be Michael Cera, Julianne Nicholson, Dylan Baker, Tim Meadows, Dylan Gelula, Kate Berlant and more. The film is produced by Aster and Lars Knudsen for Square Peg, along with Jacob Jaffke, Tyler Campellone and A24.
The upcoming project will officially be the last collaboration with Aster and the studio, who have collaborated on all of Aster’s films, such as Hereditary, Midsommarand the upcoming ones Disappointment Blvd. starring Joaquin Phoenix.
