Gerard Butler and Antoine Fuqua pursued for Afterburn
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Gerard Butler and Antoine Fuqua are in talks to team up for the sci-fi film AFTERBURN. AFTERBURN is based on a Red 5 comic about life after the sun flares up and wipes out half of the Earth. The survivors become treasure hunters who go around scavenging what’s left. The original script has been done by Matt Johnson but there may be a rewrite from Christian Gudegast. Producers include Neal Moritz, Tobey Maguire, Toby Jaffe and Jenno Topping. No word on when production will begin.
I like comic movies so this is right up my alley. I expect that Gerard Butler will be back in his element since he will be doing another action film, especially since he really got his big break in a comic role (300). Maybe he’s beginning to realize he sucks at romantic comedies. Just because you’re good looking doesn’t mean you should do romcom, just a word of advice Mr. Butler.
