Jackman, Craig Play “Rain” Becomes Film

Keith Huff has sold the film rights to his high-profile play “A Steady Rain” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The play tells the story of two Chicago cops who are lifelong friends and their differing accounts of a few harrowing days that changed their lives forever.

The conflict stems from their involvement in a domestic dispute in a poor neighborhood.

Now, Huff has sold the rights to producer Frederick Zollo and 007 franchise runners Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson who will also produce. Huff himself will adapt the screenplay.

Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman have signed on to star in the play when it hits Broadway late September through til early December. The pair have not been cast in the film version as yet, but considering their international appeal it seems likely the producers will attempt to get them onboard.
