Rachel Weisz to star in Dream House along with Daniel Craig


Known for her character of a Cairo librarian and aspiring Egyptologist in ‘The Mummy’, a 1999 American adventure film, the Oscar-winning British actress Rachel Weisz will now star in Universal’s new thriller- ‘Dream House’.

Rachel, who also won Academy Award for her role in 2005 film-‘The Constant Gardener‘ will work alongside British ‘James Bond’ Daniel Craig and Australian actress- Naomi Watts.

To be directed by Oscar-nominated Irish film-maker Jim Sheridan, the film has a screenplay by David Loucka.

It is a story of a family where Craig will be seen as a publisher, who decides to give up the rat race in New York. He then gets transferred along with his family to a pleasant New England town where the real adventure begins. Soon they discover that their beautiful new home which they purchase from an estate agent was the  scene of a brutal mother and her two children. Naomi Watts is playing a neighbor, who supposedly knew the victims and hopefully proves to be helpful.

Weisz, is a current Olivier Award nominee for her performance in A Streetcar Named Desire. She was most recently seen in the Peter Jackson-directed drama ‘The Lovely Bones.’
