Daniel Craig Builds His ‘Dream House’

James Bond star Daniel Craig is in early talks to star in the psychological thriller Dream House, reports THR.

The flick will be helmed by Jim Sheridan, who directed 50 Cent in 2005’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and Daniel Day-Lewis in 1997’s The Boxer.

Craig, 39, would play a man who moves his family to an idyllic small town, only to find his house haunted by its former inhabitants, who were murdered there

Daniel Craig awakes to 'Dream'


Daniel Craig can shake, but can he stir?

The latest James Bond has proved a critical and commercial success in his two turns in the iconic role, for "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace." But he has been deliberate in choosing his next live-action role.

Now comes word he is in early talks to star in "Dream House," a psychological thriller set up at Morgan Creek to be directed by Jim Sheridan, though principals stress that the two sides have not reached a deal.

In the David Loucka script, Craig would play a man who moves his family to an idyllic small town, only to find his house haunted by its former inhabitants, who were murdered there.

With a pedigreed director like Sheridan, the movie would accomplish the goal of branching Craig out into a more prestige direction post-"Quantum" while keeping him in the realm of the commercial.

Like other Bond actors, Craig has faced a crossroads coming off Bond hits. His two other roles, "Munich" and "Defiance," saw him essentially take on a more art house version of the Bond character of hit man and vigilante.

Craig already has shown interest in more boutique fare, recently signing for the Broadway drama "A Steady Rain." His name also surfaced in connection with "The Eagle of the Ninth," Kevin Macdonald's period pic for Focus Features.

Period? :roll: Not very likely or the script is too good to pass.

At least some news for what might be 2010 for him. :D
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

Neither sounded particularly Daniel? The Eagle of the Ninth is set in Roman Britain... But who knows... I did not expect him to do a Tintin movie either!

Tin Tin in my eyes was just for working with Spielberg and doing the Motion Capture, something he hasn´t done before. Guess he would do Spielberg no matter what that guy comes up with. :lol:

Remember when he always said at the beginning of CR, that he was asking Spielberg (among others) if he would cast him again - even after being Bond and how concerned he was about that?

. Shades of The Shining perhaps and, with the very talented Jim Sheridan (In The Name Of The Father, My Left Foot) attached to direct, it should be a good chance for Craig to flex his serious-thesp muscles.

Maybe this "Eagle of the Ninth" is where the "Hadrian" rumour orinally came from. I can't see Daniel doing period unless the script was cracking.

Sounds cool, so long as it's not like Cold Creek Manor and more like The Others I'm all for it 8) For me that plot line that's described seems to be rehashed alot; it's like it can work with the right director (and if it's true that Sheridan's involved than he's a good director :lol: ) and script...otherwise it'll fall flat on it's face lol. But if he goes for it awesome! Hopefully we'll then be able to see a film in '10 instead of just the big '11 lineup.

IF he goes for it, did you realize, that starting with Invasion he did:

Science Fiction (Invasion)
Action thriller (Bond)
Fantasy (GC)
Indie (FOAF)
War drama (Defiance)
Motion capture (Tin Tin)
Play (Steady Rain)

He didn´t repeat himself once - although I believe him, if he claims, he doesn´t do it on purpose. Now this would be another first in the new time. Guess its all about staying interested and not getting bored for him.
