HOLLYWOOD actor Daniel Craig is to temporarily set up home in Dublin with his wife Rachel Weisz as they film their next movie, 'The Lobster', here.

The James Bond star has already been on the lookout for a suitable property somewhere in the city's southside.

Craig and Weisz are planning to rent a house for several weeks as she is scheduled to start filming in March with Colin Farrell.

"They were interested in the Dun Laoghaire area, as it's by the seaside and out of the city centre, yet close enough if they want to get to the airport," said an insider.

'The Lobster' will be the first English-language film by Oscar-nominated Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, who is behind 'Dogtooth' and 'Alps'.

Weisz and Farrell have signed on to play the lead roles, with Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, Olivia Colman and Aggeliki Papoulia completing the cast.

The film focuses on an unusual love story set in the future, when finding a partner is a matter of life or death.

Production will begin in Kerry, but Weisz and Craig will be basing themselves in the capital for the most part.

Last month, the couple completed a 14-week stint on Broadway, appearing together in a production of Harold Pinter's classic 'Betrayal'.

HORROR

Meanwhile, another former Bond actor – Timothy Dalton – is already here. He cut a dash as he darted through the paved streets of Dublin's Temple Bar in a sweeping overcoat yesterday.

Dalton, who starred as Bond in 'The Living Daylights', is currently braving the wet weather as he shoots gothic horror series 'Penny Dreadful'. He plays Sir Malcolm in the TV series, which also features Hollywood actor Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Billie Piper and Reeve Carney – who starred as Spiderman in U2's musical 'Turn Off the Dark'.
