James Sheridan >>> Bond.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Naomi Watts will star opposite Daniel Craig in "Dream House," a thriller Jim Sheridan is directing for Morgan Creek. Universal is distributing in North America.

The project, picked up as a spec by David Loucka, follows a family that relocates into what appears to be the ideal residence in small town Connecticut. However, the husband (Craig) and wife (Watts) are disturbed to discover that their beautiful new home was the site of another family's slaughter, believed to be at the hands of the husband who survived.

Morgan Creek fully finances its movies, which are distributed by Universal.

The company's James G. Robinson is producing with David Robinson, Rick Nicita, Daniel Bobker and Ehren Kruger.

Production is slated to begin February in Toronto.

Watts is at Sundance this week for her ensemble drama "Mother and Child," directed by Rodrigo Garcia. The actress, repped by CAA and Untitled, portrays Valerie Plame in Participant Media's "Fair Game."

Jim Sheridan is directing from a David Loucka script. Story centers on a successful publisher (Craig) who quits his Gotham job and relocates his wife (Weisz) and two daughters to a quaint New England town, only to discover that their perfect new home was the murder scene of a mother and her two children.

Watts will play a neighbor who was close to the slain family.

Lensing began Sunday in Toronto.

Morgan Creek's James G. Robinson is producing "Dream House" alongside David Robinson, Daniel Bobker and Ehren Krueger. Mike Drake exec produces.

Universal delays Jim Sheridan's 'Dream House'
Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz-starrer was supposed to open Feb. 18

Universal won't open Jim Sheridan's thriller "Dream House," toplining Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts, on Feb. 18 after all.

Morgan Creek Prods., which financed and produced the film, needs to shoot additional footage. Craig, however, isn't available until the first two weeks of December, when there's a break in filming on David Fincher's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

That doesn't leave enough time for "Dream House" to meet its Feb. 18 date. Morgan Creek and U are still eyeing a 2011 release, and a new date is being worked out.

Sheridan will lens the additional footage with the entire cast in Toronto, where "Dream House" was shot earlier this year.

Penned by David Loucka, "Dream House" tells the story of a successful New York publisher (Craig) who moves his wife (Weisz) and children to a New England town, where they buy the home of their dreams. But the dream is shattered when they learn that the previous tenants were murdered. The husband teams with a neighbor (Watts) to learn the truth about the crime.

Marton Csokas, Claire Geare and Taylor Geare also star.

"Dream House" will still be Craig's next movie if it comes out before July 29, 2011, when DreamWorks and Universal release "Cowboys & Aliens."

Craig began production on Sony's English-language remake "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" earlier this month in Sweden.

Jim Sheridan writing US update of Into The West
EXCLUSIVE: Sheridan to direct reimagining of his 1992 Irish Traveller story.
Source: Screen Daily

Jim Sheridan is writing an update on his cult Irish fantasy Into The West, with the original film’s producer Tim Palmer also on board. Sheridan is also attached to direct.

The project, currently going under the same name as the 1992 original which starred Gabriel Byrne, Ellen Barkin, Brendan Gleeson and David Kelly and was directed by Mike Newell, will reimagine the earlier film’s themes in a new US setting.

In its most recent round of funding the Irish Film Board granted the project its top development grant of €50,000.

The original follows two young boys who escape the poverty of their Dublin council estate on adventure ‘into the west’ to find a mystical horse recently stolen from them. Byrne played the boys’ father, the once renowned “King of the Travellers.” Producers were Palmer, Alan Moloney’s Parrallel Film and Channel Four Films, with Miramax handling US distribution.

The Oscar-nominated Sheridan’s credits include In The Name Of The Father, My Left Foot and most recently Brothers and Dream House.

Palmer was most recently a co-producer on Michael Radford’s upcoming Spanish Civil War drama The Mule.
