    What is going on with his career? There have been so many projects announced for this year (with overlapping schedules) yet nothing gets confirmed.
    Maybe project announcements are a deflection when he gets bad press for his personal shenanigans.

    Olympus has Fallen
    Hunter Killer
    Thunder Run
    Did I miss any?
    Some of these negotiations must have fallen through… maybe G isn’t getting the salary he’s asking for (or there were other financing issues).
    Still think this could be his PR people trying to change the conversation when Gerry is taking hits in the press for his antics.

    Gerry on a manhunt is hardly breaking news.

  • Nika

    I used to like him very much but now he’s just known here in L.A. for sleeping with every woman who is at least slightly attractive while doing too much coke (don’t know if rehab helped)…I kinda miss the old Gerard…fame can be so destructive

  • answer

    um. no.

  • Grey

    Absolutely I would watch “Manhunt”. Love him as an actor and am a fan of all of his movies. He puts heart and soul into his movies and is so good and kind to his fans as well. Thought it was a pity that “Coriolanus” and Machine Gun Preacher had bad distributors. Hope whatever he does in the future they do justice in that department. Do wish he would make movies with his Scottish accent.

  • ugh

    he has contempt for women

  • I think

    a poster who came here a few threads ago, said it was financing, insurance issues and a very poor reputation with some directors and writers. This was offered up as reasons to why his projects were not going through.
    I also think he is STILL struggling with some addiction issues, which of coarse would make those that fund his films a little wary.
    Isn’t it odd that a man with so many injuries is signed on for nothing but action films? Does he have a point to prove? I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like Gerard, I hope something comes through soon for him.

  • jrm

    yes it would be great to see him in a new movie. I had to drive miles to see him in mgp

  • ugh 2

    post #8 is NOT me! I will post always as ugh 2 okay JJers.

  • curious cat

    Wanted “Me” to know I replied right at the end of the last thread and to have my say. Done.

    No films he has up sound like Oscar material, just like money bags.



    I swore to GIH (that means the guy upstairs ) that I would give up my strange addiction to this site once and for all but sneaked in in spite of my resolve. : (

    After pages of fighting between posters who don’t know each other personally, some of whom make wild and foolish accusations against others, FINALLY a post that made me laugh! GB as he might look in a few years if he loses that wild curly HAIR and ends up as a bald perennial late night talk show guest like you know who! The LOL was not out of spite for him or anyone else. It just kind of put things in perspective, folks.

    I see a few of the good ones are hanging in.

    At the end of the day, the journalist in me tends to win out when I assess these stories. I saw the pictures of GB at Coachella, one of him supposedly “dirty dancing” ( re the movie) with a young woman (his leg appeared to be between hers in the photo), and gossip by columnists and bloggers that he took her outside to dance and then they headed toward the potties. Nobody has claimed to have actually seen them go INTO one together. Or even separately. Nobody claims to have HEARD anything like a potty rocking. OMG. With all the super phone cameras round and the lines at potties at these events wouldn’t somebody have noticed? It is just POSSIBLE they might have had to “use the facilities.” They were seen again talking and partying together but no details of any assignation.

    Yet porta potty sex story has taken on a life of its own and circulated around .I don’t give a sh– if a rabble rousing columnist insists..”.trust me! It happened!” That’s not proof! Now pictures of another “brunette” he WASN”T pictured dancing with, talking and probably flirting with have been reprinted with questions whether she was the potty partner!If she wasn’t and I were she I would be P********d. Bigtime.

    None of this deserves the name of journalism, and wouldn’t have been published unproven by any legitimate news site.

    It doesn’t matter what we think if we don’t KNOW. I have a sign over my desk, one of several sayings sent to me by a friend a few years ago. It reads, DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK. Sometimes you can’t even trust what you think you know or think you see. You can’t be sure of connecting the dots when you don’t know who is doing the drawing and why.

    I ain’t sayin’ it DIDN’T happen, I just don’t have enough evidence that it DID to draw any conclusions or get into a hot bother about it.

    Frankly I am a lot more concerned that GB’s latest two movies, MGP, and Coriolanus, serious films, evidently didn’t command enough box office to show in my area, and I’m not very excited about what he has lined up to do. More action stuff that sounds lame.

  • silva

    I wish he would play more Scottish characters, too. I’m perplexed by his upcoming schedule, but I have to say “Manhunt” sounds a lot better than “Die Hard in the Whitehouse” and “Afterburn”. I hope he does this one and ditches the other two.
    (I wouldn’t mind if he tossed “Brilliant” in the dustbin, as well.)
    He seems to really be going after action movies lately.

  • angelsrock

    HOw cute. Curious Cat in denial – how sad yet expected.

  • Kaiser

    Wake up stupidos. Just because someone leaks that “something is in the works” just to create a “buzzfactor” around a should-be CLister like Gerard – does NOT MEAN that it will end up going anywhere!
    This isHOLLYWOOD, dummies! Its all talk!!

  • bystander

    I doubt I’ll watch any of his future generic mindless Hollywood action thrillers. He still has more potential than to turn into some aging Willis, stallone or Seagal. I still hope that one day he’ll forgo maintaining a shallow HW lifestyle with the big bucks from inferior projects, and return to the UK.

    Much of his quality work was british TV, film, or involved a british cast , production, writing or direction, like The Jury, Dear Frankie,POTO, Coriolanus. I love PSILY, which is based on an Irish book, too. I think maybe we do a bit more variety, quirky, than HW, which could suit and stretch him. He’s not going to get those sort of offers as he is. Someone said a couple of threads ago, maybe he should start auditioning for some quality or ensemble roles again, if all he’s getting offered is action leftovers, none of which have much originality in their story premise?

    Not trying to invite any Brit bashing again, but we do have different tastes and a more sardonic, self deprecating humour. Although my porta potty post on the last thread was pure lowly sarcasm. I wasn’t implying anything other than normal ablutions took place, just poking fun a t the ‘I won’t believe anything without a picture ‘ brigade. I wouldn’t want to see anything that normally went on in there, lol!

  • bystander

    Ps CCat, I’m still routing for you to in depth interview Gb. I remember what you said about your background and I’m sure your piece would be both insightful and lively. But would you want to do it (hypothetically of course)!

  • ugh

    he wants an easy paycheck

  • ugh 2

    I see angelsrock and I have the same doppleganger, yippee. I am sure that is not her either. Perhaps you should post as Loki? :)

  • malibumillie

    Too many projects being announced within the same shooting time frame without any real confirmations. Starting to look like noise or PR bunk and the plotlines are starting to blur into each other. Call us when there is something concrete.

    My point from last thread is why be upset or concerned about the people here joking about those NYC photos when far worse has been said at this and other sites many times and ignored, when damaging allegations, in my opinion, were being put out there the last few days that are being ignored or unanswered. Oh except the porta potty rumor, Gossip Cop got right on the case there. We can all sleep better now.

  • Got ya!

    Here is what you fat British cows can’t have. Now, chew on that as you go to sleep or start your day. Boo!
    There is a reason he lives in the state, there are no fat cow bitches there.

  • British Cows

    @Got ya!:
    They have lots of female cows in Britan. They open a lot of legs over there which is why they are so pissed at GB as he won’t go over there and enter those open free legs. The Britis are the most loose in the anglo-saxon world. Their legs are always open for business, yet GB won’t touch it, even if it’s so free and readily available. He rather do good-times fit attarctive LA girls that don’t look like the cows of yester year. Old meat!

  • NYC Model

    @Got ya!:
    Yeah, I meat GB last week at the affair with Philippe Green. Can’t wait to see him again. Not worried about Coachella much. He said he is going, and asked me to come with him. I had a shoot so I couldn’t go. We’re in touch and I will see him soon. You guys are out of your minds if you believe everything you read. I already know what happened. This palce is depressing. Too many throwbacks. The tabs are just blowing hot air. I don’t believe anything they report.
    If he danced with a girl, I really don’t mind. We aren’t exclusive yet, so it makes sense he wanted to have a good time. When I met him he was the life of the party and flirted a lot, so I expected him to do the same at Coachella.

  • Aha….

    @NYC Model: You forgot to add that he was nice and charming and was drinking water only. :)

  • silva

    @NYC Model: Oh for fuuck sake, Georgia 2.0.

  • bystander

    @Got ya!: yes, we brits do have a bad reputation, well deserved. But I think you will still find the USA is the most obese nation in the world, so on probability you have more ‘fat cows’ than us!

  • legends

    Ah, JJ – always a good platform for ‘the worst of humanity’s’ opinions to be shared (with a few exceptions, of course)!

    I come on here once every month or two, hoping that the comments get more civilized and/or informative.

    Always, always disappointed. (It’s nothing, if not consistent.)

    Giving this up for a long while.

  • Solo

    Ок, ок. I’m glad, we are glad, Butler maybe glad. But where is a historical dramatic projects? That’s is the true Batler’s area! Where are directors of Hollywood lost their eyes, brains and hearts??

  • AustinCityLimits

    @NYC Model: Well NYC Model, you just blew any chances of ever seeing Gerry again by blabbing that you were with him and going to see him again. It is apparent that you are as phony as a three dollar bill or you would have known to keep your trap shut about any association with Gerry as he drops women who blab stuff like you just blabbed about. Dream on, sister. You are HISTORY!!!!

  • angelsrock

    @ugh 2:

    It’s probably the same person, ugh 2!! I guess she’s bored and unimaginative!!

  • Board Announcement

    She’s baaaaaaack!
    Georgia/Brooke is posting again. Remember how to handle her, folks. Thumbs down and ignore. :)

  • GFW

    That is the sweetest photograph of him! He looks simply precious. He does.
    More projects? Love it! Thriller drama with some action, humor and a female in there for sexual tension is terrific these days!
    Question. If you had Gerry’s ear what would you say to him?
    who would say he could benefit from some stage work :o)

  • TheUglyTruth

    @Board Announcement: Kinda new to posting….who was Georgia/Brooke? Some looney who claimed to be dating Butler, I take it??? LOL! ACL is correct. Anyone who ACTUALLY is dating him and tipping off the press or gossip boards with info…is shooting themself in the foot.

  • lolita

    @Autumn, you are a class act and I hope you stay here. You have met him and I understand your concern for his recent behavior. You have seen the charming, warm and easy going Gerry so when all the rehab and addiction stuff has come to life you and the ones who really care about him do wonder why. He has so much going for him and he can be a very good actor because we have all witnessed his better performances. So please stop in from time to time there are many of us here that enjoy your posts.
    Have a wonderful day JJr’s, off to work.

  • Board Announcement

    Georgia/Brooke is a deranged fan of Gerry’s who likes to come on JJ and pretend to be his girlfriend. She first appeared last year under the moniker Georgia* claiming to be Gerry’s girlfriend, even going so far as to claim they were living together. We caught her in a bunch of lies so she went slinking off. She returned under the moniker “Brooke”, pretending to be a friend of the fictional “Georgia” and confirming the imaginary relationship. We caught her in a bunch more lies. Since then, she returns periodically under different monikers trying to sell the same scam – always claiming to be dating Gerry, we catch her lying, she slinks off, returns under another name, and the whole cycle repeats. We discovered that the best way to deal with her is to ignore her. If you talk to her, or try to point out her lies, she goes nuts and starts spamming the threads. She’s a complete lunatic.

  • TheUglyTruth

    @June: Yes, you missed Motor City!!!! Quite the list….Butler is gonna have a crazy schedule….depending on, of course, that some of these project pan out……

  • GFW

    Damn good looking man…
    who would ask if being famous is worth it after being it for so long?

  • GFW

    Getting Gerry signed on for projects helps finance them. Just because they aren’t filming, and one is set to start in May?

    This latest film announced sounds OK to me. I like that kind of thing. Did anyone notice the executive producer listed in the original article yesterday? …. Alan Siegel. Nuf said. Is it an Evil Twins production?

    Will GB be one of the hunters or the hunted?

  • breakingnews

    Hollywood Reporter

    Breaking News: Gerard Butler is now the only actor being cast as the major male lead in all new movies coming out in the next 5 years. He apparently has superhuman powers, never mind that little trip to rehab, and feels confident that he can do all the movies he has signed up for.

    Sam Worthington would not return our call for comment. Clooney and Pitt said we don’t care, we got the world to save.

    Alan Siegel, Butler’s manager and production partner noted “Hollywood finally realizes who has the charisma and box office draw. We’ll be bloody rich. Might even get an Oscar or two with this strategy.”

    Sources say the Coachella porta potty story which has been blown out of portion was actually a meeting for yet another movie deal for Butler who is a wicked multi-tasker.

    Siegel would not address rumors of Butler clones.

  • ha ha
