Gerard Butler, who will be seen as Spartan King Leonidas in the upcoming Frank Miller film adaptation, 300, has joined the cast of the drama P.S. I Love You.

The film is an adaptation of the bestselling novel by Cecelia Ahern about a widow who discovers a letter left by her late husband in which he has detailed a list of tasks to be revealed in 10 monthly messages. They are intended to help ease her grief and move on with her life.

Butler joins Oscar-winner Hilary Swank. Swank plays the widow Holly and Butler plays her late husband, Gerry.

Richard LaGravenese (A Decade Under the Influence) will direct the film from a script he co-wrote with Steve Rogers (Hope Floats).

The film will shoot this fall in Ireland and New York.
