Variety has reported on new casting for a trio of upcoming genre features. The highest-profile name and project: Rachel Weisz has been added to the cast of Universal and Morgan Creek’s psychothriller DREAM HOUSE, joining Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts.
Over in Spain, Luis Tosar has been set to topline FLATMATE, the new chiller by the [REC] films’ Jaume Balagueró, who begins lensing the Filmax production in May from a screenplay by Alberto Marini (his co-scripter on the 6 FILMS TO KEEP YOU AWAKE entry TO LET). Tosar, currently nominated for Best Actor in Spain’s Goya Awards for the prison drama CELL 211, will play the concierge of a Barcelona apartment building where he spies on the tenants and begins turning one particular young woman’s life into a nightmare. “In FLATMATE, I wanted to go back to investigate the more sophisticated mechanics of the thriller and suspense genre. A script fell into my hands which allowed me to explore these elements to the maximum,” Balagueró tells the trade.
