Gerard Butler, Sam Worthington and Matthew McConaughey are teaming up for Thunder Run, an all-CG 3D action thriller being made by Freedom Films. Simon West is set to direct, according to Freedom Films, while Hyde Park International is handling international sales and launching the title at AFM.
The movie is adapting the novel Thunder Run – The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad, by Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent David Zucchino. Robert Port, who won an Oscar in 2003 for best short documentary, and Ken Nolan, who co-wrote Black Hawk Down, penned the script.
Gerard us currently in negotiations to star in Antoine Fuqua’s “Hunter Killer.”
Based on the novel “Firing Point” by George Wallace and Don Keith, the story follows an untested submarine captain who must work with a Navy SEAL team to rescue Russia’s president, who’s taken prisoner during a military coup. The two sides team to stop a rogue Russian general from igniting WWIII.
Butler is in talks to play Capt. Joe Glass, the commander of the USS Toledo, while “Avatar” star Sam Worthington is being eyed for the role of Bill Beaman, the leader of a special Navy SEAL unit called the Dev Group.
GerardButler.Net continues to receive Amazon.com commissions to help support the website expenses, but those commissions are down with the economic challenges of the times. While our hosting fees are covered, we still have expenses like domain registrations, postal mailbox, postage for contest winners and our newsletter service. These expenses total close to $750. Looking forward to 2012, we would love to cover those charges now and donate the Amazon.com commissions to charity at the end of the year. As of today, $500 has been donated toward our goal (THANK YOU!), if you would like to help support the website, click here. Every little bit helps and thank you so very much for all your support in the past. Without you, the fans, we would not still over 10 years after we began!!
