During the Real Steel presentation at Comic-Con this morning, actor Hugh Jackman revealed that director Steven Spielberg is interested in adapting the Broadway play A Steady Rain into a feature. The play starred Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig, which ran for 12 weeks. It makes sense that Spielberg would probably want the two actors to reprise their roles in the movie.
A Steady Rain focuses on two Chicago policemen who inadvertently return a Vietnamese boy to a cannibalistic serial killer who claims to be the child's uncle. When he later becomes the man's latest victim, the lifelong friendship of the two men is threatened when it becomes clear someone must bear responsibility for their egregious failure to assess the situation accurately.
