Naomi Watts Joins Dream House
Along with Daniel Craig

25 January 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

It's been a whole five minutes since Brothers came out, but Jim Sheridan's already well under way in developing his next film, Dream House. Daniel Craig's already set to star, and now Naomi Watts has joined him in what's described as a psychological thriller.

Craig is already onboard to play the father of a family who move to their perfect home in a small Connecticut town. Once there, however, they are disturbed to learn that the previous inhabitants were all slaughtered, apart from the father of the family who was found guilty of the crimes.

Watts would play a neighbour in all of this, hopefully in a role involving tics, significant dark looks and an air of cheery creepiness.

Production begins in Toronto in February, which gives Watts plenty of time to chill out after the excitement of Sundance, where she's currently launching Mother and Child.

why bother?
there must be either an amazing amount of zeros on the cheque or an incredible twist to the story. Otherwise, as has been pointed out already, sounds boringly familiar! And is there any wonder new interesting, original ideas for movies get passed over when people line up to do stuff like this. I want to see Craig do other stuff in between Bond, but this ain't it. tut tut More

Familiar territory for Watts?
Sounds like Funny Games to me... More

Where have i heard this before...
The above description of 'Dream House' sounds a rather lot like (not that it is Helen's fault) the plot of 'The Amityville Horror'... Evil husband kills family long time ago in big spooky house, new family with hot wife move in and, o, husband goes crazy (i'm in by the way!) More
