Safady Entertainment has announced that they have acquired Dreamt, a psychological thriller written by Andrew Alexander that they will develop for Martin Weisz to direct.
Set in modern day, Dreamt tells the tale of two people who have a supernatural connection and therefore are actually dreaming in each other’s lives. Conflict ensues after the men discover each other’s existence, leading one man to try to take over the other’s life and stopping at nothing to get it.
“We’re excited to tell a thrilling, exciting story with an amazing twist to it,” says producer Gary Safady, adding: “The script has all the elements for intrigue and fascination to capture the audience from the opening frame of the film. Andrew has crafted an amazing story in the vain of ‘Memento’ and ‘Fight Club’.”
Weisz, best known for directing The Hills Have Eyes II, has also shot over 350 music videos for artists such as Puff Daddy, Korn, Live, Sisqo, Nickelback, Fuel, and numerous others.
“We believed that Martin’s visual capabilities, intuition with actors, accompanied by his passion for this project will create an amazing film,” Safady adds.
Pre-production on this action-thriller is expected to begin February 2012 with principal photography beginning April 2012.
“Martin has been a great friend of mine and a couple months ago told me I had to read this script,” says Safady’s producing partner Craig Chapman. “That night I read it three times and said we have to make this movie. Good material and great writing fuel our business. We were lucky to stumble upon a gem!”
