Posted by LiveFor on October 23, 2009

Daniel Craig is in a play with Hugh Jackman called A Steady Rain. The footage below shows the two actors being nice chaps and signing autographs. Then round about a minute in one of the fans asks when the new Bond film will be filming. Rather surprisingly Daniel Craig tells him.

Hugh Jackman has Real Steel in robot boxing film

Posted by LiveFor on October 1, 2009

hugh-jackmanCalm down ladies and lovers of Musical Theatre. Hugh Jackman, who just opened on Broadway in A Steady Rain with Daniel Craig, is in talks to star onscreen in the Shawn Levy-directed Real Steel for DreamWorks according to Variety.

The film is about a fighter who has to reinvent himself when human boxing becomes obsolete, replaced by 2000 pound human-like robots. Jackman is negotiating to play the ex-fighter, who becomes a Robot Boxing promoter, but whose chances of success are hampered by his access to sub-standard robot parts. That is until he discovers a discarded robot that always seems to win. The ex-fighter has also discovered he’s the father of a 13-year old son, and they bond as the robot brawls its way toward the top.

The premise is based on a short story by Richard Matheson. It’s a reunion between Matheson and Spielberg. Matheson wrote Spielberg’s directing debut, “Duel,” and he was story editor on Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories.”

Wolverine and James Bond get stopped by a mobile phone

Posted by LiveFor on September 29, 2009

steady-rain-craig-jackman_lHugh Jackman and Daniel Craig were trying to perform the play “A Steady Rain” Wednesday night in NYC. The play, by Keith Huff and directed by Jonathan Crowley, tells the story of two Chicago policemen whose lives are thrown into turmoil after they mistakenly hand a young boy back to a cannibalistic serial killer. The plot mirrors a real life event involving US serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

However, an idiot forgot to turn off his mobile phone. Jackman set the him straight, staying in character all the while.

Jackman stomped about on stage as he asked: “You wanna get that? Come on, just turn it off. Unless you’ve got a better story. You want to get up and tell your stories?”

The audience laughed and gave Jackman, 40, a roaring applause for taking a stand.

Seconds later, another phone rang. Craig, 41, responded: “Can you get that, whoever it is can you just get it? We can wait just get the phone,”

The phone was eventually silenced. A relieved Craig said: “Denny [Jackman’s character’s name] took it hard.”

Apparantly a film version of A Steady Rain is currently in production and is slated for release in 2012. No word on who will be in that version.

James Bond to enter the Dream House

Posted by LiveFor on June 24, 2009

Daniel Craig is in early talks to star in Dream House, a psychological thriller set up at Morgan Creek to be directed by Jim Sheridan, though principals stress that the two sides have not reached a deal. THR had the news.

In the David Loucka script, Craig would play a man who moves his family to an idyllic small town, only to find his house haunted by its former inhabitants, who were murdered there.

This is no doubt all part of the plan to make sure he doesn’t get typecast as Bond. His recent films have, Defiance and Munich have also involved fighting and guns. However, before Bond Craig was in many different types of film so I honestly don’t think he will have that much of a problem.

Craig has recently signed up for the Broadway drama A Steady Rain. His name also surfaced in connection with The Eagle of the Ninth, Kevin Macdonald’s period piece for Focus Features.
