Gerard Butler Set to Star in 'Thunder Run'

Gerard Butler is teaming up with Matthew McConaughey and Sam Worthington for the upcoming film Thunder Run.

The all CG 3D action thriller “aims to recount the capture of Baghdad by American forces at the start of the Iraq War in 2003. The three-day assault was referred as a ‘lightning strike’ or thunder run,’” according to THR.

The mag adds that producers hope to paint “the harrowing picture of the soldiers on the front lines and the realities of modern warfare.”

The flick is based on the novel Thunder Run – The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad, which was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent David Zucchino and Mark Bowden.
