Bill Paxton Is Terrifying in This Intense Trailer for the Thriller MEAN DREAMS
"If you make me chase you, it's gonna get mean."
The first trailer has been released for an upcoming thriller called Mean Dreams, and it stars the late Bill Paxton in what looks to be a crazy role that is kind of terrifying. Paxton is in full on villain mode in this film and he plays the kind of guy you don't want to mess with. It looks like he gives another great performance.
Paxton plays an abusive father and a corrupt cop in the thriller that follows his daughter Casey as she falls in love with a boy named Jonas and is desperate to escape her father and the broken home she grew up in. It doesn't help that Jonas stole a bag full of money from Casey's dad. The teens' journey together gets insanely intense and violent.
MEAN DREAMS follows courageous local farm boy Jonas (Josh Wiggins) and the new girl next door, Casey (Sophie Nélisse), as they embark on a journey that will change their lives forever. As young love blossoms between the two fifteen-year-olds, Jonas also discovers that Casey’s abusive home life has reached a new level of danger, and Jonas takes the lead in their escape by stealing a bag full of drug money from Casey’s corrupt father, local cop Wayne Caraway (Bill Paxton). With the stolen cash as their only means to a better life, Casey flees with Jonas and together, under relentless pursuit from her father, they learn the hard truth of what it will take in order to survive. In the end, Casey and Jonas are forced to make a life-altering choice from which there will be no turning back.
There's no release date set for the film, but it's one that I'll definitely be checking out!
