Film producer Herb Gains is asking $2.99 million for his home in Bel-Air.

Herb Gains, the executive producer of such films as “Watchmen” and “Geostorm,” has offered up his two-story home in Bel-Air for $2.99 million.

Tan stucco and clay tile touch up the estate, which spans a third of an acre at the end of a cul-de-sac. Through wooden double doors, the home opens to 4,432 square feet of updated living space.

Standout living spaces include a two-story great room topped by a wrought-iron catwalk and a dramatic, oversized kitchen filled with cherry cabinetry and a built-in coffee machine. Elsewhere, there’s a formal dining room and a family room with a fireplace.


Six bedrooms and six bathrooms finish off the rest of the floor plan. The master suite features heated floors in the bathroom, as well as a step-down fireplace lounge that leads to a private balcony.

In the landscaped backyard, a blue pavilion overlooks a brick patio, pool and spa.

Kevin Driscoll of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage holds the listing.

After working as an assistant director in the 1980s and ’90s, Gains switched to the production side. He has nearly two dozen film credits as a producer, including such titles as “Varsity Blues,” “Orange County,” “Green Lantern” and “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.”
