Gerard Butler In Talks To Play Machine Gun Preacher

2 Comments

Gerard Butler is orbiting around the film “Machine Gun Preacher”, a film that will be directed by Marc Forster (“Quantum Of Solace”, “Stranger Than Fiction”) with a script by Jason Keller that details the life of Sam Childers, a tough biker dude that finds God and fights to improve the lives of hundreds of Sudanese child soldiers. Sam founded an orphanage in the Sudan and then organized a militia to protect them from retribution, even hunting down the people responsible for kidnapping the kids and delivering the beat down.

Sounds like a Gerard Butler kind of movie. Gerard is a personal favorite of mine and so let me say to him, with respect, ditch the rom coms Gerard. Stick to the humorous action adventure thing, or like the above “Machine Gun Preacher”, the serious drama and action movie. Thanks to DeadLine Hollywood for the scoop.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.

    SOunds like an interesting film, and Butler would be great for it. I agree though, stay away from the romantic comdeies Gerard. It’s just hollywood trying to use him to appeal to the ladies.
