Gerard Butler in Talks for 'Hunter Killer' Lead Role
Gerard Butler arrives on the set of his new movie, Of Men and Mavericks, on Thursday (October 13) in Santa Cruz, Calif.
The 41-year-old Scottish actor is reportedly in negotiations to star in Hunter Killer, which is based on the novel “Firing Point.”
The “story follows an untested submarine captain who must work with a Navy SEAL team to rescue Russia’s president, who’s taken prisoner during a military coup. The two sides team to stop a rogue Russian general from igniting World War III,” according to Variety.
Gerard would play Capt. Joe Glass, the commander of the USS Toledo, while Sam Worthington is being considered to play the leader of a special unit called the Dev Group.
