Michelle Monaghan joins Gerard Butler in Machine Gun Preacher
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Michelle Monaghan and Michael Shannon will join Gerard Butler in the Lionsgate film MACHINE GUN PREACHER, which will be directed by Marc Forster. The film is based on the memoir of Sam Childers entitled “Another Man’s War: A True Story of One Man’s Battle to Save Children in the Sudan”. Childers story is intriguing because he was a drug dealing biker who found God and cleaned up his act while in prison. He then went on a mission to save children in the Sudan and Uganda who were being kidnapped and forced to be sex slaves and child soldiers. Butler will play Childers, Monaghan will play his wife and Shannon will play his best friend. Shooting begins this summer.
Gerard Butler has had a string of bad films since his performance in 300 so this role should show us if he has any real talent or is just another pretty face in Hollywood.
