Universal Studios will be releasing the thriller DREAM HOUSE from director Jim Sheridan on September 30, 2011 starring Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz. The film follows a family that moves into their dream home in New England after leaving their life in New York City. They soon learn that a mother and her children were brutally murdered in the house with the husband as the main suspect. When new home owner, Will Atenton (Craig), does some investigating on his own, he enlists the help of the neighbor, Ann Patterson (Watts) who knew the previous family. What they end up uncovering may just lead to their own demise.
I’m personally not into the mystery genre, but if I were I’d be quite pleased with the cast Universal has drummed up. All three of these leads are A-list stars and it makes me wonder if this may be some sort of sleeper hit as opposed to a little thriller that just gets lost in the mix.
