Gerard Butler Books A 'Brilliant' Role

Gerard Butler has signed on for the diamond-heist thriller Brilliant.

The 42-year-old Scottish actor replaces Eric Bana, who was previously in talks for the lead role. The film will reunite Gerard with his The Ugly Truth director, Robert Luketic.

The project centers around “a small-time criminal who partners with a female thief to pull off a daring diamond heist,” Variety‘s Showblitz reports, adding that producers are still searching for the female lead.

Gerard‘s other upcoming projects include the action thriller Hunter Killer, Thunder Run, and How to Train Your Dragon 2.

How about Jennifer Aniston?
Boo. Hiss. & LMAO.

Female lead: Monica Bellucci. Gerry adores her and she’s very, very beautiful. :)

@I was:

Gerry was just too tall and not broody enough for Burton. I think Russell Crowe would be spot on!

They should change it to a comedy and pair him with Hugh Jackman.

Hey, someone’s reading my posts! Cameron Diaz is now in the film!

Funinthesun @ 02/29/2012 at 9:15 pm

How about Melissa McCarthy? It could work!

@Joie de Vivre:

Hi Joie! Good to see you back safe and sound. Sounds like a nice little vacation. Yes, I did see Coriolanus. I loved it. Pre-ordered on Amazon and can’t wait to see it again. Gerry was fine as Aufidius!! And I do mean FINE!!! It did seem like a lot of story jammed into 90 minutes though.

Lots of Gerry news lately to take in and sort through. Of course new news does bring out the best and worst of us. And rehashing possible events from GOTL in St. Louis? Really? I mean this is one tough crowd, aye.

But the bottom line is that Gerry does draw a crowd here!!

Cheers to tomorrow being Thursday and almost Friday!!!! I am so looking forward to a low-key weekend for a change.

I finally found some time to go through the Vanity Fair pics. Wow!!!!!!

Funinthesun @ 02/29/2012 at 9:34 pm

Do you think it would be a mistake to pair him with Demi? I mean she may be out of rehab by then and need the work!

Brilliant @ 02/29/2012 at 9:34 pm

@Suggestions….: Wow I am impressed you know Ziyi Zhang the Chinese actress who has appeared in many movies (e.g. “Hero” and “House of Flying Daggers” and “Hidden Dragon and Crouching Tiger”) That would actually be great if she is casted as the female lead in this one and the movie might have a chance to be shown in China. It’s about time Gerard gets some exposure in China.

angelsrock @ 02/29/2012 at 9:37 pm


I know who you mean and I love her. She’d be terrific!!!! And how refreshing would that be instead of an Anniston or Heigl.

Well it sounds like an interesting role . Can’t wait to see it . : D

Sounds like a great role for an excellent actor. I hope there is some hot romance in this role too.

justsayin'too @ 02/29/2012 at 11:44 pm

Just my opinion but I don’t see Cameron and Gerry having on screen chemistry.

@justsayin @ 02/29/2012 at 11:49 pm

they were tweeted or snapped cuddling at Shudders awhile back and they both will fuuck anything that moves…so who knows!
