Imagine a clone created to take your place in your family space in order to make up for your absence but upon your return, it doesn’t wish to leave its job! As chilling as it is thought provoking, Brownstone Production brings before you a psychological thriller titled, ‘Dreamquil’ that will definitely make you wonder what the implications of developing Artificial Intelligence could be.
Rumored to cast Elizabeth Banks(Modern Family) and John C. Reilly(Step Brothers) in lead roles, ‘Dreamquil’ will potentially take place in the future where living conditions are not exactly favorable and Artificial Intelligence has advanced to such an extent that it can create human clones. Carol, the protagonist, is a mother who is unhappy with her marriage as she is struggling to connect with her marriage and children despite a seemingly good marriage. Wanting a break, she joins a mental wellness retreat run by Artificial Intelligence wherein they place a clone named “Carol- Too” to take care of her children and husband. However as she returns, her robot does not wish to part with the family and proceeds to attempt to get Carol eliminate.
What’s the Progress?
As the complete cast is yet to be announced, we cannot say for certain when the production will begin. But, the dates are sooner as it will potentially commence shooting in Los Angeles, California.
Alex Prager, an established American artist, is set to write/ direct this upcoming feature film. Vincent Landay, the producer of another popular sci-fi movie, ‘Her’ (2013) will reportedly take up the production of ‘Dreamquil’ alongside Max Handelman and Alison Small.
‘Dreamquil’ and AI
With rapid changes noticeable in the field of Artificial Intelligence, it is only predictable that the future dynamic of the world will change in an extensive manner and consequentially, technological developments call for questionable consciousness. ‘Dreamquil’ explores one such possibility of technological advancements not exactly being a boon.
If Elizabeth Banks and John C. Reilly are indeed taking the center stage for the film, then it is certain that the entertainer will be a stellar watch. Banks and Reilly are known for their comedic roles and the upcoming feature film will put them in an entirely different outlook that will be quite refreshing.
‘Dreamquil’ will also potentially showcase stirring visuals as the setting is in the future and leans more on the thriller side. With the increasing demand for thrillers as upcoming productions such as Prime Video’s ‘Buried’ does prove, ‘Dreamquil’ will be intriguing to view indeed.
