As MINDSCAPE With Mark Strong Gets Underway, Watch the Director's Earlier Work

Peter Martin, Managing Editor

Mark Strong, Brian Cox, and Taissa Farmiga are set to star in Mindscape, which is now getting underway with debuting director Jorge Dorado at the helm, according to Screen Daily.

The film "follows a a man with the ability to enter peoples' memories who takes on the case of a brilliant but troubled and dangerous teenage girl to determine whether she is a sociopath or a victim of trauma." Strong has been doing excellent work for years, perhaps most notably in Sherlock Holmes and Kick-Ass, a one-two punch that raised his profile considerably, while Taissa Farmiga made a very good impression in older sister Vera Farmiga's Higher Ground.

Dorado has twice been nominated for Spain's Goya Awards, and you can watch one of his nominated efforts below. La Guerra, co-directed with Luis Berdejo and running less than 10 minutes, covers the panic and terror of war and its effect upon a young boy. I've also included a funny commercial he did for a phone product, and an arresting teaser that's firmly in thriller territory, for El Sol Oculto.

    "The film "follows a a man with the ability to enter peoples' memories who takes on the case of a brilliant but troubled and dangerous teenage girl to determine whether she is a sociopath or a victim of trauma."
    I thought it was a remake of Dreamscape (1984).....but it sure sounds entertaining.
    Jorge Dorado seems talented, judging from his page on Vimeo, thanks Mr Martin.
