Daniel Craig finds his ‘Dream House’

Jim Sheridan will direct Morgan Creek film

Daniel Craig has committed to star in the psychological thriller “Dream House,” marking Morgan Creek’s first movie under the reign of Rick Nicita and its first production start in three years.

Jim Sheridan will direct the film, which starts shooting Jan. 25.

Craig plays 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.

Nicita, a longtime CAA topper, became co-chairman of Morgan Creek one year ago, sharing that title with James G. Robinson. Morgan Creek fully finances its films, which are distributed through Universal.

Craig is about to star in the Broadway play “A Steady Rain,” by John Crowley. Hugh Jackman is his co-star. Craig is best known for his James Bond films.

“Dream House” was written by David Loucka. It will be produced by James G. Robinson along with David Robinson, Daniel Bobker and Ehren Krueger.

Sheridan has been nominated for six Oscars. His previous films include “My Left Foot” and “In the Name of the Father.”
