DANIEL Craig can shake, but can he stir?
The latest James Bond has proved a critical and commercial success in his two turns in the iconic role, for Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. But he has been deliberate in choosing his next live-action role.
Now comes word he is in early talks to star in Dream House, a psychological thriller to be directed by Irish filmmaker Jim Sheridan for indie producer Morgan Creek, though principals stress that the two sides have not reached a deal.
In the David Loucka script, Craig would play a man who moves his family to an idyllic small town, only to find his house haunted by its former inhabitants, who were murdered there.
With a pedigreed director like Sheridan (In America, My Left Foot), the movie would accomplish the goal of branching Craig out into a more prestige direction post-Quantum while keeping him in the realm of the commercial. â€” Hollywood Reporter.
