Gerard Butler Tears Up Talking About 'Machine Gun Preacher'

Check out this new poster for Gerard Butler‘s upcoming movie Machine Gun Preacher!

The 41-year-old Scottish actor recently sat down with the L.A. Times and teared up while discussing the film.

“This happened to me a lot when we were filming. I would just be overcome. I feel every emotion. I haven’t talked much about this movie in a while, and I did the other day, and I just started crying. I cried for about five minutes,” he explained.

During filming, screenwriter Jason Keller met with Gerard for “marathon sessions to deconstruct each scene.”

“I think it was a great responsibility for Gerry to play the role of a guy who is alive, a guy who is as dynamic as Sam with a story that’s so incredible,” Jason told the LAT. “During the sessions, and even when we were filming, I saw him going deeper and deeper [into the role]. It was an incredible burden [for him].”
