The late Bill Paxton had wrapped a couple of films which were unreleased at the time of his death last month: the Emma Watson-starring The Circle (out April 28) and the thriller Mean Dreams (out in theaters and on VOD on March 17). The latter follows a farm boy named Jonas (Josh Wiggins) and the new girl next door, Casey (Sophie Nélisse), as the two 15-year-olds fall in love — and into danger. Jonas discovers that Casey’s abusive home life has reached a new level of danger and takes the lead in their escape by stealing a bag full of drug money from Casey’s corrupt father, local cop Wayne Caraway, who is played by Paxton.
