Story


Dreamcatcher, the film based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, tells of four young friends who perform a heroic act -- and are changed forever by the uncanny powers they gain in return. Years later the friends, now men, are on a hunting trip in the Maine woods when they are overtaken by a blizzard, a vicious storm in which something much more ominous moves...

Challenged to stop an alien force, the friends must first prevent the slaughter of innocent civilians by a military vigilante, then overcome a threat to the bond between them. In the end, the friends confront an unparalleled horror, with the fate of the world in the balance.

Lawrence Kasdan, whose film credits include Body Heat, The Big Chill, Silverado, Grand Canyon, and French Kiss, is the director. The film stars Morgan Freeman and Tom Sizemore as military officers. Thomas Jane, Jason Lee, Damian Lewis, and Timothy Olyphant play the four friends, with Donnie Wahlberg as the mysterious figure at the center of their circle.

Production began January 13, 2002, in the snowy woods of Prince George, British Columbia, and moved to Vancouver at the end of February. Principal photography wrapped on May 27, but the movie is far from finished. Besides the usual post-production -- when the film is cut, the soundtrack is created, and all aspects are polished -- critical computer-generated visual effects (the aliens) are still in the works. Watch this space for continuing reports...
