A Dreamscape remake?

The 1984 film starring Dennis Quaid and Kate Capshaw


Kyle Newman, writer/director of the forthcoming “Revenge of the Nerds” remake, tells IESB and Collider that he’s had discussions about possibly calling the shots on another 80’s redo, Dennis Quaid starrer “Dreamscape”.

Remember that little video classic?

In it, Quaid (looking very ‘Indiana Jones’ on the VHS sleeve, from memory) played a clairvoyant who decides to use his powers for good – instead of gambling, as one normally would – and enter the minds of some folks who are having disconcerting nightmares. Unfortunately, there’s another psychic on the scene – who is using his powers for eeeeeeeevvvvil.

Kate Capshaw, Max Von Sydow, and Christopher Plummer also starred in the film, which was directed by Joseph Ruben.

It only made about $2 million bucks, stateside, on it’s opening weekend back in August of 1984, but the film did have a good idea behind it, so not really surprised Hollywood’s looking to do it again.

So whom do you think would make a good Alex Gardner?
