Variety reports that Weisz will co-star with Daniel Crag (A Steady Rain) and Naomi Watts in the film that centers on a successful publisher (Craig) who quits his job in New York City to relocate with his wife (Weisz) and two daughters to New England. The snag: the new home was the murder scene of a mother and two children. Jim Sheridan will direct the film that has a screenplay by David Loucka. Universal Pictures will distribute.
Weisz recently concluded performances as Blanche DuBois in the Donmar Warehouse staging of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. She made her Donmar debut in Design for Living in 1994 and later appeared in the 1999 Donmar revival of Suddenly Last Summer. She starred in the London production of The Shape of Things, and reprised her performance Off-Broadway and on film. Her screen roles include "The Constant Gardener," "The Mummy," "The Brothers Bloom," "The Lovely Bones" and "Agora."
