Almost two months to the day after negotiations first began between Morgan Creek and Daniel Craig for the latter to topline the production house’s first new project in three years, the deal is done. Craig has signed on the dotted line and will appear in six-time Oscar nominee Jim Sheridan’s Dream House.
Variety reports that in the film, which starts shooting January 25, 2010, Craig will portray a New York publishing exec who relocates his family to a small New England town only to learn that their new home was the scene of a vicious murder.
Morgan Creek fully finances its films, which are distributed through Universal. Dream House was written by David Loucka. It will be produced by James G. Robinson along with David Robinson, Daniel Bobker, and Ehren Krueger.
Here’s hoping Craig fares better in Sheridan and Morgan Creek’s Dream House than he did during The Invasion (review here), his last genre flick.
