MGM is taking a plunge down the rabbit hole with “Living Neon Dreams,” a contempo “Alice in Wonderland” tale from 22-year-old American writer-director Jeremy Tarr.

Due to shoot next month at the Babelsberg studios, $20 million pic toplines A.J. Cook (“The Virgin Suicides,” “Final Destination 2”), Nastassja Kinski, John Rhys-Davies and Thomas Kretschmann.

MGM will distribute the film in North America and in the majority of offshore markets; Arclight Films is pitching the rights to a number of key territories in Cannes.

It’s the first feature to be produced by Michael Tarr (Jeremy’s father), the chairman of a British broadband company. Hy Smith, a marketing maven who launched his own shingle after leaving UIP several years ago, will co-produce.

Cook plays a girl who enters a fantasyland after consuming a spiked drink at a party.

“We really believe in Jeremy’s vision and we’re excited to be working with him on this project,” says Arclight’s Nicolas Chartier.

As a teenager Jeremy Tarr made a small film, “Infamous Day After Tomorrow.”
