Naomi Watts will star opposite Daniel Craig in the psychological thriller "Dream House" at Universal Pictures and Morgan Creek, says The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the Hollywood Reporter: 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, 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.

The premise of the film sounds like it could be a run-of-the-mill horror idea, but with Sheridan at the helm, I have a feeling it will be nothing like that.

Sheridan is truly a great filmmaker, and Watts is a great actress. I think they will make a fine pair, as should Craig and Watts, who both know how to command the screen. Watts is currently at Sundance for her ensemble drama "Mother and Child," directed by Rodrigo Garcia.

Shooting on "Dream House" kicks off this February in Toronto.
