Daniel Craig’s new horror film has been held back because he’s too busy to appear in planned reshoots. The James Bond star appears in Jim Sheridan’s spooky thriller ‘Dream House’, which was expected to be released next February. However, the film’s bosses want additional footage for the movie, but they have yet to find time in Craig’s busy schedule to plan the extra shots.
Craig is currently shooting in Sweden for filming of the US remake of the hugely succesful ‘Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ – and won’t be in the US until the end of the year. It’s not yet known when the film will get a release date. ‘Dream House’ tells the story of a publisher who finds that the house he has moved in to has some spooky guests.
Dream House tells the story of a successful publisher (Daniel Craig) who quits a job in New York City to relocate his wife (Rachel 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 (Naomi 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.
