Steven Spielberg is reportedly looking at adapting Keith Huff’s Broadway play “A Steady Rain” into a film reports ComingSoon.net.
The story 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.
Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig played the roles on stage for 12 weeks and it’s likely they would reprise the parts for the film adaptation. Jackman let slip the news today at Comic Con and claims a writer is on board. No word in what capacity Spielberg himself would serve (ie. producer only, director, etc.).
