Even as the coronavirus plays havoc with release schedules, independent distributors are forging ahead and dating movies for later in the spring and summer, and one with an intriguing pedigree and cast has just been placed for a few months hence.
Uncork’d Entertainment has set a June 5 release in select theaters and on VOD/digital for DREAMLAND, which reunites director Bruce McDonald, scripter Tony Burgess and actors Stephen McHattie and Lisa Houle from the celebrated offbeat zombie opus PONTYPOOL. Co-written by Patrick Whistler, DREAMLAND combines the crime, horror and fantasy genres and also stars Henry Rollins (HE NEVER DIES), Juliette Lewis and Tomas Lemarquis (ERRORS OF THE HUMAN BODY, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE). The synopsis: “On the night of the strangest weddings in cinema history, a grotesque gang boss hires a stone cold killer to bring him the finger of a fading, drug-addicted jazz legend.” See the original trailer below and look for more on DREAMLAND as its release draws closer.
