Machine Gun Preacher, the film about Sam Childers, the biker preacher-defender of Sudanese orphans that James Bond vet Marc Forster wants to direct and Gerard Butler is slated to star in looks closer to a “go,” with a start date in June. They’ll film this in Pennsylvania, according to Production Weekly.

“Butler plays real-life hero Sam Childers — the one man fearless enough to fight a ruthless army outnumbering him 1,000 to 1. The fierce edge that once led Childers to a life of crime now fuels his daring crusade into Africa’s most dangerous battle zones to rescue children from the clutches of rebel warlords. His mission is clear: protect the children, no matter the cost.”
