Did we ever get confirmation that DC has a house in Knaresborough, Yorkshire? There is some rumor that he bought a house in that town, as a 2nd home.

LOL!!!! I know what is birthday suit! No, don't want everybody staring at Little Ray! I would dress him in green jacket, trousers, plaid shirt, and maybe some pinwheels. Of course that famous orange Kangol hat.

Bond producers buy film rights to `A Steady Rain`

It's been a solid few months for playwright Keith Huff, writes the Hollywood Reporter.

First, A-list Hollywood talent Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman signed on to star in his play, "A Steady Rain," which begins Broadway previews Sept. 10 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre ahead of a Sept. 27 opening.

Now, Huff has sold the film rights to producer Frederick Zollo and James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, who are among the play's producers.

Huff will adapt the screenplay. The deal is for mid-six figures against $1 million.

The play's press notes describe "Rain" as "a new American play that 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.

"Rain" began its stage life in 2006 and had its professional world premiere in 2007 at Chicago Dramatists. The Broadway run, directed by John Crowley, will play a limited 12-week engagement through Dec. 6.

The play marks the Broadway debut for Craig, a Royal National Theatre veteran in London who also has starred in the past two Bond films, "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace," for Broccoli and Wilson.

Huff, repped by Gersh, manager John Bauman and attorney Karl Austen, has written two other plays, "The Detective's Wife" and "Tell Us of the Night," which complete a trilogy that begins with "Rain." Although Craig and Jackman have not been cast in the film version, the producers might be eyeing a potential franchise for two stars with huge international appeal and proven dramatic chops.

Broccoli, Wilson and Zollo teamed to field the 2005 musical production of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang."

Huff also has written the plays "Pursued by Happiness," "Gray City" and "The Bird and Mr. Banks."

A new Camden house?

Post by sf2la » Wed Jul 22, 2009 3:08 am

Has this been posted? Sorry if it already has. If true, he sure seems to have a lot of property within a close vicinity of one another.

DANIEL CRAIG has bought OASIS rockers NOEL and LIAM GALLAGHER's old house in Camden, London for $7.3 million (£4.5 million). The singers lived at the house when they first moved to the British capital as Oasis rose to fame in the early 1990s.

I wonder if there is truth to this Camden house rumor? First it goes against DC's privacy ethos to move into such a prolific address. Second, did the Gallaghers actually share the same house? Third, why does he need a Camden address and a Primrose Hill address?

You can never know, of course, but my two cents are, that his thoughts would probably be the same as yours - why? He has earned good money, yes - but not enough yet to go crazy. Plus he has a reality check going, that says - if may all end tomorrow. So he will make sure, he has always some serious money left now. None of us knows, how this credit crunch will end and how and if at all, a house like this might sell.

So my guess is - its not true.
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

Primrose Hill and Regents Park all come under Camden Post Code. I know where he lives but would never go there

Well he's a big Oasis fan, so maybe he doesn't mind sharing their old digs!

Might be, but for me this seems to much like a bad karma. This guys have a strange appearance. Hope he didn't buy it.

I don't think so. Like GG said, he has earned good money, but not enough for such things. I can imagine he buys some little things, but a whole house seems a bit unrealistic to me.

yes i think but we saw pictures of him in camden with ella. maybe house ella was in was not paid for and he moved her to another big house? investment so his family and fionas family can stay there? better security for ella too. maybe that why?

i not know when he buy house but it investment at such time. it will increase.
