Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel and Catherine Zeta-Jones in new images from Playing for Keeps
Gerard Butler is hitting the pitch in the new film PLAYING FOR KEEPS (formerly called PLAYING THE FIELD) and today we’re getting a couple of news photos. PLAYING FOR KEEPS is a romantic comedy that has Gerard Butler playing a former soccer star who goes back home to get his life back together and reconnect with his young son. When he gets roped into coaching a peewee soccer team, he encounters all the trials and tribulations that come with coaching kids and dealing with their nutty parents. The photos shown aren’t telling, but since I do love a good soccer film I’m a little hooked already. And though I’m not the biggest Gerard Butler fan, I do find the guy has some serious charisma, he just tends to pick below average roles.
PLAYING FOR KEEPS is directed by Gabriele Muccino (THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS) and stars: Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Judy Greer and Dennis Quaid. Look for it in theaters on December 7th, 2012.
