Once again a big THANK YOU to HughE over at Philly Chit Chat for some fabulous photos for last night’s location shoot for Law Abiding Citizen in Phildalphia. Additional photos by HughE can be found at Michael Klein’s Philly.com The Insider blog.

Hugh captured Gerard, who wasn’t in the scene being filmed, but was on set with his producer hat on and chatted and took photos with fans, along with Jamie Foxx, Colm Meaney and director F. Gary Gray as they worked.  Head on over to his blog to read all the details of the night!

Thanks again Hugh!

Overture FilmsOverture Films, the distributor for Law Abiding Citizen, has tentatively set the release date for the film as March 26, 2010.  Read more…

In more LAC news, actor Jamie Foxx was injured while playing basketball in Philadelphia.  While the injury was not as serious as the article makes it out to be (it was only a sprain), it reportedly did cut short filming at Holmesburg Prison yesterday, but the film is still on schedule.  Read more…

Thanks once again to HughE over at Philly Chit Chat for sharing photos of Gerard from New York Fashion Week.


Check out HughE’s blog for what he had to say about his short conversation with Gerry about working in Philadelphia.  One small note about Hugh’s blog and his reference to Gerard on Twitter. We checked with Alan Siegel and the person on Twitter is NOT Gerard Butler.  Gerry doesn’t even know what Twitter is!   :D

Thanks once again to Philly Chit Chat for some great pics from the press conference with Gerard, Alan Siegel, Sharon Pinkenson, Mayor Michael Nutter and Jamie Foxx.  Hugh also sent us some additional photos which you can view in the gallery, along with ones from Just Jared.  Thanks again to Sharon for working so hard with Hugh and others in getting us some great photos!

We have already heard from Carol in Philly, were you at the press conference too?  Leave us a comment and tell us all about it!

With the obvious comraderie between the actors and directors of the film, we are VERY excited about this film that Gerry has worked so hard on and, of course, pulling for its success. How excited are YOU for the film? Cast your vote here! or on the homepage left sidebar.
