Gerard Butler could be a Hunter Killer for director Antoine Fuqua
Posted by: Zack Bruce
I’m glad that Gerard Butler is starting to get away from the rom coms. With a more recent serious role in MACHINE GUN PREACHER, Butler is now diving back into films that we may actually watch. Well, I might actually watch.
Butler’s next role could be in Antoine Fuqua’s HUNTER KILLER. The actor is currently in negotiations to play: Captain Joe Glass, the inexperienced submarine commander who ends up forming an alliance with a Navy SEALS team to rescue a kidnapped Russian president. There are two other roles up for grabs: the Navy SEALS leader and the evil Russian general behind the kidnapping. Sam Worthington is being looked at to take one of the roles.
I’m actually really surprised that Worthington and Butler haven’t already been in a film together. They were once linked to another project called AFTERBURN but I guess that fell through.
