  6. http://www.empireonline.com/ Gerard Butler Talks Black Freighter Exclusive: On The Watchmen DVD extra!It’s been rumoured for a while now, but Gerard Butler has confirmed to Empire that he will be lending his vocal talents to the animated Tales Of The Black Freighter short that Zack Snyder is planning as a companion piece to Watchmen. The Scottish actor had been linked with a role in Watchmen for a long time, but when nothing materialised, it seemed likely that he wouldn’t be linking up with his 300 director on next year’s eagerly-awaited blockbuster. But, when Snyder hatched plans to film the Tales Of The Black Freighter comic-within-a-comic that tells the tale of a castaway’s mental and physical deterioration and damnation as he tries to intercept a ghost freighter headed for his hometown, and include it on the Watchmen DVD, Butler’s name surfaced once more. And, speaking to Empire just the other day, he told us that he had committed to the project. “I’m going to do the voice of the captain,” said Butler. “They’re going to do it in the style of a Japanese anime and I’m totally stoked. “I actually read the script before reading the comic book and I thought it was awesome,” continued the 38 year-old. “Then I read the comic book and it’s great. The little bits that have been added define it so much more. It’s very dark and there’s just something so descriptive and scary. It’s this descent into madness but explained in such a sane way that you totally feel it yourself. By the end, my heart was pumping!” Although considered extraneous to the plot of the movie proper by Snyder and his predecessor, Paul Greengrass, Tales Of The Black Freighter is a story that deepens the impact of Watchmen’s main plot, mirroring the arc of a character we won’t reveal. As a side project, the anime approach is brave and the addition of Butler – who has a great speaking voice – makes this even more exciting. Let’s hope he keeps that Scottish burr. Watchmen will be released next March. Chris Hewitt
  7. Uncut Live With Crank Directors Neveldine and Taylor Here you go folks. As most of you know last night on the live installment of Uncut, we had the pleasure of having Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Writer's and directors of "Crank", the upcoming "Crank 2″ and the newest Gerard Butler movie "Game") in studio with us. We present the first 20 minutes of that conversation to you now. In this video they address issues with their overdue "Pathology" (with Milo Ventimiglia from "Heroes"), how on earth there can be a Crank 2 and some stuff about "Game" as well. Enjoy! http://www.themovieblog.com/2008/02/uncut-...dine-and-taylor
  8. Not a silly question Bel... And NO you don't need to include that sentence. I was just trying to say that there is no set theme. Do whatever design you want. Hugs, Jenn

Gordon; based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley. ® (AC,AL,GV,N) Actors: GERARD BUTLER, LENA HEADEY, DOMINIC WEST, DAVID WENHAM, VINCENT REGAN, MICHAEL FASSBENDER, TOM WISDON, ANDREW PLEAVIN, RODRIGO SANTORO, ANDREW TIERNAN Director: ZACK SNYDER Premieres March 1, 10:00pm (Eastern time)

  13. http://www.thetimes.co.za/ Macho man Gerard Butler is playing a dead hubbie whose letters help his wife get back on track. By Tom Long. Actors with a CV like Gerard Butler don't really expect to land a leading role in a heartbreaking chick flick such as P.S. I Love You. This guy fought dragons in Reign of Fire, lurked in the shadows in The Phantom of the Opera and in 300 he and his Spartan warriors built actual mounds of corpses. So how did Mr Macho in his leather thong become the tender husband who, just before his untimely death, writes 10 letters that he hopes will guide his grieving widow (Hilary Swank) into her new life without him? "An action movie is all-encompassing," Butler says. "You're surrounded by it; explosions, gunfire, and it's really cool, but while I'm doing it, I'm telling myself I definitely don't want to do this kind of stuff forever. It's hard work, and I miss the chance to sit down and do scenes where you're just having a regular conversation. "I want to have some sexy time, you know, and be able to experience all the parts of my psyche and my life, and to get into all the different areas, you know." That's why P. S. I Love You appealed to Butler. "I had to ask myself tough questions. After somebody dies, is it a good idea to still be getting letters from them? Was this guy leaving his wife a blessing or a curse? Letters like that can be like a curse, a crutch that keeps you in the past and traps you in your grief. "There's a lot of negative potential in the story and I had to find a positive result. It came when I stopped thinking about what he did and focused on why he did it. He wants to help his wife get through the coming grief. What a beautiful gift to give somebody! That realisation dictated the way I played the role," says Butler. "I made a decision to stay out of that 'leading man head space' we actors sometimes get into. I'm not a diva. I think I'm down to earth, but when you're playing the title role in a film, you can't help but get caught up in your own head. "For this movie I thought, 'I'll try the opposite', which was to throw my focus completely onto Hilary. It took all the pressure off me. I felt relaxed and spontaneous. I knew she wasn't out to get me. I wasn't out to get her and we were having fun." — © (2008) New York Times Partner Publication P.S. I Love You opens on February 15.
  14. *raises hand also* I would have seen it without Gerard... because I read the book first and loved it And I agree with Jill on the marketing... PSILY was heavily marketed in my area Hugs, Jenn
  15. Hobbes2 http://chud.com/ HEIGL SUMMONS A BUTLER Jeremy Smith Published 01/30/2008 The last time Gerard Butler took a co-lead in a romantic comedy, I predicted that it wold "mint money". Then Warner Brothers went and marketed P.S. I Love You with very little confidence (even though it effectively flooded the tear ducts of every woman I know), causing the film to stall out at $52 million domestic. It'll find its audience on DVD. But what of Butler's seemingly imminent leap to leading man status? He'll get a few more opportunities to demonstrate his box office drawing power over the next year with Nim's Island, Guy Richie's Rocknrolla (described as an "ensemble" piece) and Neveldine-Taylor's Game. But if he falls short with those, it won't matter what kind of business Robert Luketic's The Ugly Truth does. Pitched as a "battle of the sexes" romp, Butler will play a meth-addicted morning show reporter who locks horns with his producer (Katherine Heigl) over the hiring of a black weatherman. Sorry, I read that wrong. Make that a sexist morning show reporter who subjects his producer (Heigl) to "a series of outrageous tests to prove his theories on relationships and help her find love." I'm sure Butler will turn on the rakish charm for Luketic (who will do everything to mishandle the screenplay by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith), but this sounds like a Heigl vehicle. And since her latest romantic comedy, 27 Dresses, is currently on pace to gross somewhere in the $75 million range domestically, she'll get most of the credit if The Ugly Truth hits. And Butler will just be "that guy from 300". Lakeshore Entertainment is producing, while Sony Pictures will distribute. Shooting is scheduled to commence in April.

  21. http://albuquerque.bizjournals.com/ Friday, January 18, 2008 Life on a run Producer David Rubin straddles two states while molding the movies It's a chilly day in the parking lot of the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Albuquerque. Extras for the film "Game," clothed in a wildly colorful array of retro '70s clothes, platform shoes and afros, shiver under coats they will shed once they are needed again. Stars Gerard Butler, Kyra Sedgwick and Amber Valleta are shooting a very brief scene where they escape in a van. And David Rubin is constantly in motion, cell phone in hand, talking or checking e-mail. Producers must make sure a production for a film or television show, for example, moves along smoothly. But going on location can be problematic, such as when a picket line forms on the periphery of your shot. The Writers Guild of America had called for a national day of action on this day, so local members went to the places in New Mexico where the film industry is most visible. Today that happens to be the set of "Game," the film Rubin is producing. With a budget of about $50 million and a local spend of $18.8 million, it's the most high-profile production to hit the streets of Albuquerque. Rubin is clearly irritated by the interruption, but takes it in stride. A memo is quickly distributed to all cast and crew explaining that the script for "Game" was completed and production begun well ahead of the strike. "It's a very unfair characterization of who we are as a company. We're not a company that's part of a major studio," said Rubin. Rubin became a company man almost three years ago when he joined Lakeshore Entertainment, the production company behind "Game." He still works in Los Angeles, but his family home has been in Albuquerque for three years. His wife, a homeopath, took a job here. Their two teenagers are in school here as well. Before joining Lakeshore, he spent years as an independent producer working for different studios. "I always wanted to be part of a company," he said when asked which was preferable. "There's a consistency in your work environment and the personalities." That work environment becomes a lot more predictable when shooting movies in the soundstages of Albuquerque Studios. "Game" is back in swing after a brief holiday hiatus and Rubin seems much more relaxed. A small crew is working with Butler while shooting a prison scene. The recorded voice of actress Alison Lohman floats over the soundstage during each take and there is complete quiet until a loud bell indicates the shot is over. Rubin's list of producing credits is eclectic. For "Game," he has rejoined Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine, the writers/directors behind the over-the-top action film "Crank," which Rubin produced. (He is working on the sequel as well.) But he also produced dramas like "I Am Sam" and "Believe in Me," which was filmed in Clovis after he moved here.
