The new year is starting with big news for Construction Film. Frank Buchs who joined the company as CEO beginning of 2019, joined forces with Green Room Films in association with Tuesday Films, Matisse Pictures and Burn Later Productions to produce an „opioid thriller“, written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki, produced by Cassian Elwes. „Dreamland“ is starring Gary Oldman, Armie Hammer, Evangeline Lilly and Veronica Ferres and is a Canadian-Belgian

In the movie three stories about the world of opioids collide: a drug trafficker
(Armie Hammer) arranges a multi-cartel Fentanyl smuggling operation between Canada and the U.S., an architect (Evangeline Lilly) recovering from an OxyContin addiction tracks down the truth behind her son’s involvement with narcotics, and a university professor (Gary Oldman) battles unexpected revelations about his research employer: The CEO of a drug company (Veronica Ferres) with deep government influence bringing a new “non-addictive” painkiller to market - all in a thinking person's gangster tale of high and low. Shooting will start in March 2019 in and around Montreal.
