Rachel Weisz joins Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts in Dream House
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
When we mentioned that Naomi Watts was starring with Daniel Craig in DREAM HOUSE, but as his neighbor instead of his wife, I mentioned that it was odd they went with a big name actress for the neighbor before they had the wife cast. Well, today comes word that Rachel Weisz will be playing Craig’s wife in the thriller from Jim Sheridan. As mentioned, the film is about a man that relocates his family to a small town, only to find out that a family was brutally murdered in their house.
So far, I like everyone involved with the project, but the story doesn’t do much for me. I just feel like we’ve seen it many times before, albeit usually without such an A-list cast. The only way they’re going to be able to make this work is if they have a crazy twist at the end or take it in a direction we’re not expecting.
