With gerard butler's outstanding performance in '300', it should be no problem to draw some attention to his latest movie, due out later this year, 'butterfly on a wheel'. he starrs alongside pierce brosnan and maria bello in this dark thriller. here is a short clip from the plot synopsis from imdb.com:

neil and abby warner have the perfect life and a perfect marriage. with their beautiful young daughter, sophie, they are living the american dream... until today. when sophie is suddenly kidnapped, they have no choice but to comply with the abductors demands. the kidnapper - ryan (brosnan), a cold and calculating sociopath takes over their lives with the brutal efficiency of someone who has nothing to lose. in the blink of an eye neil and abby's safe and secure existence is turned upside down. over the next twenty four hours they are at the mercy of a man who wants only one thing. that they do his bidding. it soon becomes clear that ryan's demands are all the more terrifying... because he doesn't want their money. what he wants is for neil and abbyís life, the life that they have built over 10 years, to be systematically dismantled and destroyed. piece by piece. with time running out on their little girl, neil and abby realize their nightmare is about to take its most deadly turn: they will have to face ryan's final, horrifying challenge - would they kill an innocent man to save their own child? in the far distance a solitary light burns in the window of a lodge as the car glides to a halt - and neil knows it is a question only he can answer - when ryan hands him the gun...

pierce brosnan as a psychotic killer ... i'm definitely looking forward to this one. lionsgate picked pu the us distribution rights from mel gibson's icon. it is rumored that icon will focus more on less risky projects after 'apocalypto' disappointed at the box office. - [frank]
