Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz Thriller 'Dream House' Loses Appeal On R-Rating

The Playlist By Matthew Newlin | The Playlist July 7, 2011 at 5:02AM

In what is likely another ridiculous decision by the Motion Picture Association of America, the new thriller "Dream House" will still receive an R-rating upon its release. The Hollywood Reporter announced that the movie, which stars Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz has lost the appeal for a lesser rating put forth by Morgan Creek, who produced and financed the project. Never ones to be verbose or clear in their decisions, the Classification and Rating Appeals Board (an arm of the MPAA) simply stated that the rating was based on "some violence" that is featured in the film. Well, that clears it up.

In what is likely another ridiculous decision by the Motion Picture Association of America, the new thriller "Dream House" will still receive an R-rating upon its release. The Hollywood Reporter announced that the movie, which stars Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz has lost the appeal for a lesser rating put forth by Morgan Creek, who produced and financed the project. Never ones to be verbose or clear in their decisions, the Classification and Rating Appeals Board (an arm of the MPAA) simply stated that the rating was based on "some violence" that is featured in the film. Well, that clears it up.

The movie, which has already experienced its fair share of setbacks, is directed by Jim Sheridan ("In America") and tells the story of a couple (Craig and Weisz) who "move into what appears to be their dream house, but things turn nightmarish when they are haunted by the home’s former inhabitants, who were brutally murdered." Not the most electrifying concept, but we just hope the script by David Loucka—best known for ancient pics like the Michael Keaton comedy “The Dream Team” and the Whoopi Goldberg basketball movie “Eddie”—has a bit more to it.

Noami Watts and Martin Csokas round out the cast of "Dream House" which hits theaters on September 30th. In the meantime, you can catch up on news about Craig's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" which is sounding better and better every day.
