Director Jim Sheridan Wants His Name Removed from "Dream House"

Director Jim Sheridan Wants His Name Removed from "Dream House"Submit Comment
Jim Sheridan's horror film "Dream House," starring Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, has an awful 8% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes and has only been able to gross $11 million worldwide on a $50 million budget. These aren't the kind of results one would expect from Sheridan (Brothers, My Left Foot), a six-time Oscar nominee.

LA Times has learned that Sheridan reached out to Directors Guild of America (DGA) earlier this summer in order to get his name removed from "Dream House." But the only way that can happen is if DGA determines that the finished product is significantly different from the movie Sheridan has been attempting to make.

The request was eventually dropped after Morgan Creek agreed to let Sheridan re-shoot a portion of the film. But Sheridan quickly started deviating from the script that led to disastrous test screenings. The studio finally stepped in and took control of the film in the editing room.

Sheridan fought back by resuming his request with DGA and declined to do any publicity for the movie. No word how everything worked out, but insiders point to Sheridan's last few films like 50 Cent's "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" to show the director's last then stellar track record.

No forgiveness for you.your responsible for directing a movie with 50 cent that's as bad as the human centipede movies.you must be impaled

And Daniel Craig is box office poison when he's not doing a Bond movie

@band

True to a point..but Bond is a brand..and almost anyone can fill the shoes and still make money.


This guy did a 50cent movie...f*ck me!!

What a step down..the man should be more embaressed for that than this movie.

At least he got nominated 6 times, beside that..... I canīt agree more with anyone of you. Directing a movie with 50 cent. Unforgiven. Is like they had call my mother a whore. I canīt simply stand that. f*ck U Mr. Sheridan!!!!

I think you guys are missing the point. This idiot wanted his name taken off a product that he and he alone f*cked up. He temporarily stopped complaining when the studio gave him a second chance to correct his own mistakes, but he f*cked that up too. That's some pretty funny sh*t in my book. Knowing this, I'm almost willing to give 50 a break or at least not put the entire blame of Get Rich on his terrible acting. Even the best actors need compitent directing to make a decent product. Just look at Robert Deniro and Dustin Hoffman in the latest Focker movie. Just TERRIBLE!

It wouldn't be the first time half a movie ends up on the editing room floor. You have to remember he's only in charge of so much and the producers usually get final say and can turn a movie into what they want with editing. Sergio Leone used to use really long shots so it would make it next to impossible to edit or cut his shots. Sheridan is 62, and far from the age of becoming a hack. I'm betting the studio decided to cut the film when they realized it probably wouldn't sell.

this movie was worse than Pulse, One Missed Call, Get rich or die trying, The Last Airbender AND Cars 2... COMBINED... it was absolutely awful. I dont blame him for wanting his name taken off of the this piece of sh*t.
