Dreamscape, the 1984 film, starred Dennis Quaid as psychic Alex Gardner, who becomes involved in government-sponsored experiments that allow him to enter others’ minds as they dream. The reboot series, however, is set to introduce a virtual reality spin to the original concept.

According to Giant Freakin Robot’s sources, the rebooted series will be about a shared virtual reality realm which people can enter during their sleep, a concept that aligns with the shared dreams theme of the original film.

Spike Jonze, known for his surreal and dreamlike storytelling, is a fitting choice to lead the Dreamscape reboot. While Jonze hasn’t directed a feature film since 2013’s Her, his body of work is well-suited to the concept of Dreamscape.

It’s currently unknown whether Jonze will serve as director for the series or if he will only produce. His last credited work as a director was for the 2020 documentary Beastie Boys Story.
