Gerard Butler To Star in Phantom Sequel?

Gerard Butler struts his sexy self down Robertson Boulevard after having lunch at the Newsroom Cafe in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon.

According to UK’s Daily Express, Gerard, 38, is to star in a stage version of the sequel to The Phantom of the Opera.

Andrew Lloyd Webber wants to bring Gerry to the London stage as the Phantom, a role he played in the 2004 film. He said, “I have got my own new show coming on next year, which is my sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, which I think is going to be called Phantom: Once Upon Another Time. But that will come on in November next year, if everything goes well.”

A source reveals,“Because it’s a sequel to a film which helped the career rise of Gerard, Lord Andrew believes he will do it. There could be another film down the line. There’s a massive audience out there who love the original, another is that he could run the casting for the West End show as a film, too.”

    Butler Can't Sing Says:

    The singing in the movie version of POTO was recorded. Even w/ the help of modern technology Butler couldn’t sing. Did you ever see him go out & promote the movie by singing? That is right because he cannot sing. Even Emmy who I think is beautiful & has a beautiful voice struggled w/ singing the songs live when she was promoting the film. I would love to see Patrick playing Raoul but Christine & Erik need to be re-cast unless Emmy’s voice has matured. Yes Butler is good looking but Erik is supposed to be ugly so who really cares what he looks like. I agree w/ #23. Singing in a live production 8 shows a week is a grueling task. There is no way Butler can do it. Weber should have made the Phantom movie in the late 90′s & cast the original London cast in it. That cast was magic-they made POTO what it is.There have been a few good stage Phantoms but Steve Barton was the best Raoul ever.

    Cat Says:

    Gerry is hot & that is why they cast him in the movie. The Phantom is supposed to be ugly & Gerry hardly wore any make-up which really upset a lot of people. He did receive praise for his acting in the movie but virtually all the reviews were critical of his singing because he didn’t have the range & spoke a lot of parts that should have been sung. The movie bombed in the US but did well overseas. ALW wanted to make the movie w/ Sarah & Michael & that is why Michael left the LA production. However, ALW was going through a divorce w/ Sarah so put it off & thus all the dramz about Butler. I would like to see Butler reprise the role on stage to see if he really can sing – then the debate will be settled. I don’t care who is cast – I am for sure seeing it!

    I don’t think he’ll do the sequel. He’s got too much on his plate right now. Enough of that. LOOK AT THOSE PHOTOS! Especially the pole pictures. Almost made my heart skip a beat. He’s gorgeous! Um. Um. Um.

    What a MAN!! He just exudes SEX. I love the tight shirt and no one wears jeans like he does with his long legs and sexy thighs.

    Keep the pics coming Jared! … for those of us who can’t get enough of the Hot Scot.

    Bravo to you #22, well said, #23, it is obvious that you have no idea how much singing went into the movie, they had to sing all of thier parts every day whether they were filming that part or not , they were singing in the studio every day as well and I mean EVERY day, besides Gerry would do alot better in the sequel then the guy from New york that played the phantom when I went to see it on stage, he was NOT good at all, and made the phantom look ridiculous. #24 just because he’s not dating one certain person doesn’t mean he is not a person who is settled down. #26, as the matter of fact, he did sing parts of his songs at several interviews while promoting the movie, Don’t comment if you don’t know the facts.#27m you and a lot of people seem to have the mistaken idea that the POTO on film was suppose to be just like the stage version, ALW wanted it to be different. People should not be comparing the two versions, they were meant to be different. and the film didn’t bomb in the Us, if fact it did really well where I live, so you don’t know what you are talking about. #28, I don’t think he will either, because he’s involved with other things now. oh and for anyone out there who isn’t aware of this Emmy, was trained in opera when she was younger before she became an actress.

    wow overkill with the photos…

    but its Gerard so its ok, but how he must have changed since becoming famous. Seriously, I think he has changed but thats inevitable when in that business.

    I think he needs a woman too, he just seems to need one…. i dunno

    ashley Says:

    what does it matter no way in hell is Gerard going to do this…he’s a film star now doing tons of movies.

    he wasn’t even interviewed in the article it’s just ALW talking his ear off about wanting Gerard. just because he wants Gerry doesn’t mean he’s going to get him

    and also Gerard is so gorgeous. :D

    RoxanneDanielle Says:

    I loved POTO both on stage and in screen! I would love Gerry in the Sequel…. it doesn’t matter though, because most women out there would just imagine it was Gerry playing the part anyway!

    Sweetheart, look at your tummy right now. Everyone has hair on their stomach. Men are just hairier…you poor thing, isn’t it past your bed time?

    Buy some clothes that fit and have yourself a shave and a scrub. Yet another sloppy movie star.

    #36 Tracy, you sound a bit too into this, please stop hiding in his bushes.

    Great news. A friend of mine who is currently in a west end musical has said that there has been news of people auditioning for the sequal.

    So great to hear he is not linked to the cougar Diaz. Actually the comments he made about her being a dog was very funny but coming from him very serious. Anyway since that comment she has been linked to three other men. It must be her age 35 I think not she is at a time in her life 40′s needing to find a man quick. The make up removed reveals her real age. If only my friends in the industry would reveal her photos and her real age. I suppose they have to play nice.

    Go Gerard reach for the stars. See you at the auditions.

    SayWhat, there´s something call SENSE OF HUMOR which you probably lack…. you poor thing! So sad….

    covi Says:

    Dearest SayWhat… do you live in Tibet? Your colourful description of what a true Yeti might look makes me think so. Oh you poor thing! It must be very painful to see nothing but hairy stomachs day after day (sob!) I really pity you… Whenever you see a REAL man like Gerry you must feel flabbergasted… poor lassie (more sob!). Don’t worry about my bedtime, just worry about your manliness concept.
    I totally agree with Gillian – Gerry’s too handsome for this world
