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.

    Gerry needs to take back his life!
    1. Stand up for himself. He’s worth it.; 2. What he think counts, and his ideas count.; 3. Everyone doesn’t have to like what he says and thinks.; 4. If he acts like he are a person of value, people will respond to him that way.
    -
    When people feel undervalued they tend to hang with others similar which I feel he does too often, or did this past year. Slip into old ways because they feel in control like that. Influenced by the surfer crowd, for whatever reason… authenticity, lack of esteem, whatever, this kind of stuff happens. I know he knew it as it was happening. This is why he checked himself in, or was drug there… it does not matter, it happened and he stayed. He stayed until he felt (and this is important) he could handle the Oscar night parties so went.

    @Manny:
    1) First, you can skip my posts any time, so I don’t understand your complaining
    2)Second, that’s why I call myself reviews – I review as well as I posts whatever new I find. There isn’t enough times you can post the news. For example, some of this stuff was posted in the last thread and not everyone has time to go back. Also, sometimes links are posted pages earlier and not everyone has time to keep up with the whole thread.
    3) Third, at least 50% of what I posted wasn’t linked here before.
    4) Fourth, I hope you, CGE, or anyone else are not offended that sometimes I post the same stuff you posted before. I’m not dissing you or disregarding your contribution. I am just reviewing for the newcomers. As I said, there isn’t enough time you can post the news. And old news will always get replaced by fresher news.
    5) Fifth, I don’t care about the negs. Whoever likes can neg, neg, neg away. Negs don’t have any impact on my personal life.

  • Oh dear 1

    I embrace my negs. I get enough of them.

  • God Bless yoou all!

    Or conversely others are being dragged down by him and his habits… Remember little one, there are two sides to every coin.

    You go on and on like this whole world is against the man when he is his own worst enemy. REMEMBER he is the one who selects who he hangs out with. He is responsible for the choices HE makes…

  • dargabriel

    No excuses for butler in my book, whatsoever. He needs to live by what he’s bought into in this life, no sympothy, no mercy, a joke at best. Stupidity withhis fake obessesions and weaknesses. I disagree with the one’s who seem to think this man should be with a woman who excepts his disgraceful ways,wrong, butler needs to except the good book then once he does he can have what he yearns for most. To be honest I’ve not went to the theatre to see any of his movies since LAC, I caught a line spoken by him towards others, which he was actually truely speaking about himself, such as “you did your job that served you best”, in other words, just like butler he does his job that serves him best, and that’s it. This is God forsaken acts, that’s all it is. Anyone who feels sorry for butler is just as weak as he is. He needs to have the universe kick his ass harder, so be it, this message is from archeia hope to arch gabriel, so be it. Love,dargabriel

    @Reviews:
    .
    No need to get upset about it. I was making an observation that almost a full page was links of things that have been already discussed and left on the other thread. Not everyone is wanting to keep rehashing things.
    .
    Also I don’t care if you repost my links, they are for everybody but I think since what I posted has now been posted on this site four times that is overkill. If you are just posting links to post links, well that would be nice to know so people don’t waste their time going to them again. Other posters have noted when they have duplicated by either saying “this might be a duplicate” or “sorry if this has been posted before” which gives others a clue…
    .
    I don’t know why you get negs either, I haven’t given you any but still they come. And you’re right I skip most of your posts now because I realize it is just the same stuff over and over. (Sorry) Maybe it is because you are recirculating old news when new news is already in the forefront and being discussed. Just a thought.
    .
    Have a great day…

    @GFW: Hey GFW, how are ya?
    To answer your question, yes, I could stop posting here at any time. I haven’t even been around JJ all that long. And I don’t know what you meant about me being angry…I’m not at all! I come here for fun and to chat. What I do have, however, is CONCERN for Gerry. Without getting preachy (I can’t stand preachy people!) I know what I’m talking about. I’m an addict myself! I told my story a few threads ago, so I won’t rehash. I know Gerry has to go to certain functions, but it’s all about moderation and timing (now is too soon!) .

    When I was in my 20′s, I was a freelance entertainment journalist. I spent A LOT of time in L.A. and I know how poisonous the Hollywood party circuit can be…..I was actively involved!

    Wrong people, addiction is a choice, no such thing as diesease, its only what you’ve been taught, all fake, not real, habits are addictions of many things, we grow our own habits, doesn’t matter where we come from, you ultimately have the power to say yes or no, our mommy’s and daddy’s among others teach us as we’re growing up, trust me I grew up around a full on alcohlic, my dad, who would take anything else like a candy store. My mother. Is a pill popper to this day a chain smoker, oh my dad is the recovering alcoholic, not by choice, my sister likes taking shots and pills when my mother gives her some of her uppers or downers, geeze,people are very disgraceful, then to say they don’t have a problem, I do care about these individuals, however no pity. I’m the only one who is high on life in my family and they wonder how, my sister thinks vices are necessary, I said its ok to have a vice, such as learning,caring,reading,walking and being a good person, but the drugs,sex, and sinnful stuff is not I, the bottom line is to be real with yourself, a very loving soul with hope in thy heart. I hope that people read this, because it’s very important ppl see that habits are not a diesease, its a choice. My deal is obeying the Gabriel and being obient, its the best. Have a wonderful day peoples.

    How much did she make for this? Seriously. Wasn’t he with BC during (and before) and after filming of 300? And this proves what? He cheated on BC? And I won’t say too much but the strenuousness of filming and its effects from his (possible) performance enhancements actually (shocking I know) decreased his sex drive sending her (possibly) storming home lacking? Self-centered person she was. Spend the meat money well! Out pops another one!

    @dargabriel: Really? WOW! Why the HECK would someone “choose” to be a junkie/addict and ruin their life? I’m sorry to hear you’ve been around it so much, but addiction is a mental illness/compulsion. People who think like you are part of the problem/stigma associated with the illness. You also probably belong to the crowd that thinks homosexuality is a “choice”…..sigh…..

    All Fake, I’m screaming through the universe for people to wake up, I’m shaking you all very hard, I hate fake. Butler be warned, things will get more intense in this universe if you don’t pull it up, out of my beautiful hands, so be it. People pay attention to my words, I do not only speak on butlers behalf, but all of yours as well, message from the Gabriel, this is the real. I will be sending messages through other people,things, and anything I see fit, to wake you all up. A prophet says, butler will not bare his own children, and this you can trust, he very well, may adopt.

Adressing people whom think taking drugs or any other sinnful act is a diesease or a mental illness, is nothing but a choice, especially for people that are as intelligent as butler is, he will come out and tell the truth. I can tell people really do not understand what true faith really is.

  • dargabriel

    @Toronto: hi, I wanted to address your comment. People develope habits because they do not have the will to stop in some cases, but those who have a strong will, will prevail, and this I can promise, listen to your inner voice, pay attention to your body, why does it hurt, why do things happen????? Is this God’s way of saying when you surrender, then I will ease your pain and grief? I happen to know whatever Mr. Butler has brought upon himself, is for very valid reason and he’s too stubborn to listen to the spiritual father, his bad. This goes for everyone, so simple rules, pay attention, receive your wings, or play and pay, very easy universal rules, let’s say you play, well then its real easy to numb the pain and not ask for forgiveness and keep living a reckless life until it gets reaped away harshly, so be it. To set the record straight, I love everybody,gay,straight,young,old,nice,mean,overweight,underweight,all different walks of life, but I’ just being real. People often ask me,why all this pain? I say forgiveness from God is the key and obeying the word and most importantly very real faith, this is your power, with follow through, then all flows in the right direction, called the positive flow. I’ not sorry I grew up with family with disfunctions, I’ve been their teacher, but they’ve failed lessons time and time again, my mother often calls me to her side for light, I shine upon her, but she’s failing, she is a very young soul, it is sad and a very bad rut to be in, she prays to God with absolutely no follow through, still thinking taking pills repairs, but things are getting worse, she doesn’t get it, stop the madness and pay attention, all the prayers in the world won’t save you, unless you change your ways, trust me, this is the invisible working of the universe, butler knows better, he just gives people false info. He is stubborn, in this lifetime he will learn though. I’m a messager, remember, we bring our own grief upon ourselves and of course, we bring karma into each lifetime from birth to death, fixing karma and creating it, as I said from birth. Our souls are invincible, however our temples are biodegradable, we must look out for our temples in our lives and treat them as God expects, no room for error. And I do not mean fake stuff, plastic surgeries and such, I mean the real, no masks because those masks will crack. Last but not least to live without fear is the best life of all. Love,dargabriel

    Alicia Marie is a fitness model and has a gorgeous body. However, she is very manly and harsh looking in photos that have not been touched up.I’ remember something about someone seeing her coming out of his house when they were there to interview him several years ago but I can’t remember where I saw it. I am sure more will come out to get their 15 minutes of glory since Brandi’s episode.

    Yes, I remember her looking manly. What is it with him and the manly women? I think you were the first one to notice that all of his women are really not that attractive.
    We desperately need a picture of this wench lol.
    .
    In other thoughts, why would he date his hired staff? I thought he keeps his hands off the people that service him. Can we expect the same thing between him and his assistant?
    And wasn’t she with him in Bosnia when he was filming Coriolanus? He said his trainer, a mean tough-looking woman, worked him hard and even Ralph was totally surprised to see this woman training him. I guess she was doing more than training him. So he had Martina, LC, and the trainer that we know of at the same time.

    @dargabriel: I 150% agree with you, addiction to pain meds HIS choice.

    Gee, do i seek help today for this problem i have??? or should i swallow more pain meds, snort coke, fuuck a barely there teenybopper, and pi/ss/ away me career and my loyal fans(well some of them at least)

    Do addicts really believe that if a bottle says take 2 tablets every 4 hours that means 20 tabs as needed. They have eye disease maybe. Only the addicts themselves preach my addiction is a disease cr/apola. Cancer is a disease, MS a disease, Parkinsons’ a disease.

    It is all being spun to garnish sympathy for fuucking up his life!, with HIS choices.

    @oh dear 1, I love that all that is being leaked is how randy and bedworthy Butler is. Gimmeabreak. His pr and handlers should be shot. He needs to deep six himself the fuuck out of public eye for awhile. Then prove he is worthy of a movie ticket and over inflated paycheck.

  • justsayin’too

    There are lots of pictures online you can look at if you google her. Also she has a fan page on facebook and you can see her there. She has an awesome body, but she is kind of manly and harsh. Women who let their body fat percentage get too low really take a hit in their faces. If Angelina Jolie doesn’t gain some weight she is going to look like a shriveled up prune in the face by the time she is 45. I think Catherine Deneuve said a woman after forty has to choose between her fanny and her face. I work out 6 days a week but am very careful not to get too thin by eating plenty of protein and nutrient rich food. Peopel are so against fat these days, but to keep a smooth complexion with minimal wrinkles you need facial fat. That’s why all the starlets look so weird with their skinny bodies and puffy injected filler faces. It isn’t natural looking at all, just looks like they have been injected with fillers. LOL

    Alicia Marie is gross. She seriously looks like a man, a tranny. When the first rumors about her and Gerry came out I looked up pics of her and I frankly could not believe that Gerry could find her attractive. She’s horrible looking. And that wig…omg. http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/gallery/alicia-marie-picture/

  • Crazy Wench

    You know, I am starting to think that perhaps he likes these monster-looking women so he can wrestle with them in bed and have animal-like sex.
    He is a big guy, so maybe he thinks a more dainty woman is not going to keep up with him physically. He needs someone he can be very physical with, and not worry about breaking her. At least that’s what he thinks right or wrong. Otherwise, how do you explain women like Koola and this steroid-high trainer? I once heard some men talk about such considerations.
    If you think about it, LC is also a bit manly, although she is much better than these two.
    .
    All I can ask now is if he marries, would he settle down with a woman that looks like these women or will he go for the more feminine beautiful type? I can see that if all he wants is fast cheap sex, then he would go with the type that can accommodate his animalistic needs. But in marriage there are other considerations beside sex. Could he stand to wake up every day besides an ugly looking woman? Would he look for a nice girl as opposed to the ho type he goes after? Would he look for a woman who could be a good mother? A woman who nurtures, loyal, and supportive. I also heard many men make those consideration too as part of marriage contemplation.
    .
    And this has been my contemplation on the subject.

  • dargabriel

    @internetmasterbrian: very true your words you speak, you know the real, no pity or sympathy for people who make the decissions to rely on drugs to numb them, nothing more then an excuse, of course the end result is, the more you take,the more you hurt, God works in mysterious ways and I do whole heartedly believe in the power of faith and tuning in, we’ve many avenues, yet we must chose what is best, butler has not paid attention, so as I say, karma is very tuff at times but for reasons, stay strong and positive. GFW doesn’t know any better, bless her, she believes in the mask and putting a bandaid on things, this does not represent strenght, it represents weakness and an enabler sense, yes, forgiveness is divine, however we earn this through good deeds through ourselves, meaning taking great care of the temple and others around ourselves. Take good care, love,dargabriel
