02-11-11: Gerard Butler gets set for Mavericks, Weinstein Co. buys Coriolanus

Two bits of career news for Gerard out of Berlin today.

First up, Gerard has signed on to star in the Curtis Hansen directed-film, Mavericks.  Based on the true story of Santa Cruz surf phenom Jay Moriarity and his quest to ride the treacherous Northern California breaks known as Mavericks, where winter swells create waves the size of five-story buildings.    Gerard will play Rick “Frosty” Hesson, the mentor who trained Moriarity for over a year and forged a close relationship with the surfer in the process.  Filming is set to begin in October.  Read more from Deadline.com…

As previously rumored, The Weinstein Co. has obtained the U.S. rights to Ralph Fiennes’ directorial debut, “Coriolanus,” in Berlin.  In addition, TWC has acquired pan-Asian pay TV rights to “Coriolanus,” which the outfit was circling before the European Film Market kicked off on Thursday.  TWC is planning a U.S. release this year.  Read more…

A seat has also been reserved for Gerry at this Sunday’s BAFTAs.  View pics at OK! Magazine

02-10-11: An Unbelievable TEN Years with Gerard Butler!


WOW, we can’t believe it, but it’s true …. Gerard Butler Dot Net is celebrating its TEN year anniversary!
We can’t believe it’s been 10 years since three friends decided to create a place for people to learn about a little-known actor who played Dracula and Attila.  How time flies and how things change!!!  We couldn’t be happier to still be here and still supporting a man we have come to call “friend” through all his success and hard work.

Of course, we wouldn’t be here without the countless hours of help from volunteers who help manage our gallery, news and newsletter.  We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the countless contributions from fans across the globe who send in their pictures and news finds.  We couldn’t do what we do without the continued support of Gerry, Alan Siegel, Danielle Robinson (thanks guys!!) and the film professionals who send us project news and updates!!

Every year so many of you want to wish Gerard a Happy Valentine’s Day, we at GerardButler.Net strive to make those wishes also benefit those in need. Instead of sendings cards and gifts, we ask that you use the same amount you would have spent on those things and donate it to Kids Kicking Cancer. Over the last four years, GB.Net has raised over $60,000 during this campaign.  This year’s campaign will run until March 15, 2011.  Click here to donate and leave a Valentine’s message for Gerry!
