A poster for the new Jim Sheridan (Brothers) film, Dream House has now surfaced online. The film stars Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts. The film is about a family that relocates to Connecticut and discovers that the new house they moved into was once a home to a family that got slaughtered by the husband that survived.
This is the first I have heard of this film and it sounds good. It doesn’t sound like anything new or special in terms of the story. We’ve seen these types of new homes with a bad past films before, but something about the cast and director involved in this one gives me hope.
I liked Jim Sheridan‘s last film, Brothers. I thought the performances were great and the film in general was good, especially the last act, which was very intense. I hope Sheridan can bring that same intensity to Dream House, especially with such a good cast.
Dream House is scheduled for release on September 30th, 2011. Check out the new poster below, thanks to TheFilmStage:
“…a family that relocates into what appears to be the ideal residence in small town Connecticut. However, a father (Craig) and his family 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. Watts plays the family’s neighbor.”
