What’s Behind the Book of Shadows? Part 3: The Man Who Came to Dream
What makes a man dream?
What’s the nature of dreams?
Is a man a dreamer or a dream destroyer?
Why are we interested in dreams?
These are some of the questions explored in The Man With The Book of Dreams, by Steven Spielberg, the first film in Spielberg’s ambitious DreamWorks-produced trilogy.
The book of dreams, which tells the story of an old man who wakes up from a dream after a night of drinking and partying, opens with a sequence of dreamlike images.
Spielberg has made his mark with the worlds of cinema, theatre and popular culture with his classic Spielberg films, most recently The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, which he wrote and directed.
The Man with the Book Of Dreams, which stars Daniel Radcliffe as a young boy, is set in an English countryside.
Spielberg’s previous films The Bridge on the River Kwai and The Rescuers were based on real-life events and are now in the public domain.
Spielberg said the book of spirits, in particular, is “the best thing to come out of the dark ages.”
Spielberg said that when he started work on The Man in the Book, he was looking for “something that had the right feel to it.”
“I just wanted something that would be in the heart of the night, not just on the horizon,” he said.
He also shared that it was a “really strange experience” to see the original draft of the script that he had written before he met Daniel Radcliff. “
And the book is the perfect subject for this story.”

Spielberg described it as “a dream of my life.”
Spielberg described his process as “totally unpredictable,” as he wrote the script in about 12 weeks.
Spielberg began by creating an outline of the story he wanted to tell and then working with director Christopher Nolan, producer Robert Richardson and a team of screenwriters.
In the beginning, he began by thinking of how the story might play out.
“I would imagine what the character would be doing, and then I would write a couple of lines and I would be done,” he told National Geographic.
Then, “I’d go and start writing the script again, and you’d say, ‘Oh, this is going to be different,'” he said, adding that he was always trying to keep the character as “fresh as possible.”
“Then I’d sit back and wait for the script to come in,” he added.
“Then when I got it, it was like a magic wand.”
He told National the script is a “very simple, very direct” story, and the idea for the film came after he finished writing his draft.
“The book of the spirits, if you like, is very simple,” he explained.
“They’re the ghosts that haunt the house, and they’re all different types of spirits that are out of control.
“It’s very, very frightening,” he continued. “
Spielberg said he was interested in creating a “powerful, scary” tale that would “go into a dark corner.
The book Of the Spirits, which Spielberg said is the first of his films, follows the boy, who has been dreaming of an older man who has gone missing, in the 1930s, while he’s at school. “
If you think about the movies of the ’70s and ’80s, they’re very, really scary.”

Spielberg recalled that he and his team “had a very hard time” when they first began working on the story.
“One thing we were struggling with was what did the story have to be about?
And we had to figure out what was going on and what it was that was going to drive it,” he recalled.
“So we started to come up with this idea that the story was going for a story about a man that wakes up in the middle of the forest, but he’s been dreaming about an older and stronger man.
And then you have to figure how you’re going to bring that character into this world and this world is very, strong.
And that’s where you really hit a wall.”
Spielberg also shared how he was able to tell the story without any “waking up on” sets or other filming locations.
“You can just feel it, and that’s the most important thing,” he quipped.
“That’s what makes it scary.
You can’t see it, but you can feel it.”
Spielberg’s new film also stars Emma Watson, Rooney Mara, Jack O’Connell, Michael Shannon and Mark Strong.
Spielberg is directing and writing the film alongside screenwriter John Ridley.
Spielberg, who is also a producer on the project, said the script will “break new ground in the world of horror.”
