Gerard Butler gets religious in new trailer for Machine Gun Preacher
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Directed by Marc Forster, MACHINE GUN PREACHER is the true story of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealer and biker who turned to God for a better life. He was moved to go down to Africa and build an orphanage for the Sudanese children who had been forced to become soldiers in the war. Gerard Butler will play Childers and will star alongside a supporting cast that includes: Michelle Monaghan, Michael Shannon, Madeline Carroll and Kathy Baker. MACHINE GUN PREACHER will hit theaters on November 18, 2011. Check out the poster and trailer below.
I haven’t been one of Gerard Butler’s biggest fans of late, but I think MACHINE GUN PREACHER will redeem him in my eyes. These are the types of roles he needs to start looking for in the next couple of years, he’s too good for the mediocre romantic comedies he’s been giving us lately.
