Principal photography has begun on Morgan Creek Productions’ Dream House, it was announced today by James G. Robinson and Rick Nicita, co-chairmen of Morgan Creek Productions. Directed by six-time Academy Award nominee Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father), the film stars Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz. Dream House is filming on location in Toronto, ON.
The film tells the story of a successful publisher (Craig) who quits a job in New York City to relocate his wife (Weisz) and two daughters to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her two children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from a neighbor (Watts) who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will’s dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.
The film will be produced by Morgan Creek’s James G. Robinson along with David Robinson and Daniel Bobker & Ehren Krueger, and will be executive produced by Mike Drake. The screenplay was written by David Loucka. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in North America. Universal Pictures and Morgan Creek International will distribute internationally.
