Gerard Butler: 'Dynamo' Star!

Gerard Butler: 'Dynamo' Star!

Gerard Butler has just signed on to star in the upcoming film Dynamo, based on the novel “Dynamo: Defending The Honour Of Kiev.”

The 42-year-old actor will take on the role of Nikolai Trusevich, the all-star goalie who leads his team and inspires the entire battered city of Kiev, Ukraine.

The film is based on “the landmark soccer game that took place between an occupied Ukrainian soccer team and their Nazi captors during World War II. To stem a rising tide of resistance and establish Aryan superiority, the Nazi’s set up a match pitting the starving Ukrainians against a ‘super team’ of German players that to this day is still known as ‘The Death Match’.”

Dynamo is scheduled to shoot in Europe next year.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Gerard Butler as a soccer player in Dynamo??

another flop

This will definately stretch his acting abilities. Many here mentioned he needed to challenge himself. I hope he learns Russian, he can’t use his scottish accent and sell this character to the audience. He keeps getting the roles. Doesn’t he also have another movie called Thunderrun that he;s making next year. I know he signed up to play the father again in How to Train your Dragon 2. I know its not a big part but its work.

I don’t think that this new project “Dinamo” will have any success! Oh! But that’s just my opinion! Good luck, Gerry!

@Dynamo:
Again policy! Not a good idea from the start! I fear that the project will be doomed as MGP! Why he subscribes to such projects? Sad!

I’m not a big fan of G’s film choices lately and I’m not a sports person, but I have to say this film sounds really, really good. I hope they get a good director on board because this sounds like a story worth telling.

I hope it doesn’t go the way of MGP. Also a great story but suffered from a poorly written script and a director who failed the material, imo. I hope “Dynamo” has better luck because it sounds like it could be a quality drama, rather than the rom/com or action movie cr/ap Gerry chooses too often. I think he’s made a good choice here.

Gerard Butler, please don’t make this movie.

Gerry’s upcoming project sounds great and I hope it is a huge success. In general, I’m not a fan of sports films but some like Breaking Away, Eight Men Out and Raging Bull have been successful at the box office.

Just walked past Gerard Butler in Central Park. He’s walking around alone. WTF

@Nadine:
I’m confident that the film will be immediately banned in many European countries! I think that Ukraine will also go down in this number! I think that it’s better not to do, Gerry! Just saying!

Wow another soccer film. So he traded in his American The Game of Their Lives goalie kit for a Russian goalie kit. We just need Catherine Zeta Jones playing an impoverished soccer mom cheering in the bleachers to make his soccer trilogy complete…
.
WTF dude.
.
Question, doesn’t this sound a lot like the Stallone’s Victory where POWs played the Nazi super team???

Maybe this movie would work if they portrayed the politics and ruthlessness of the regime and not so much on the sport. If the players are starving wouldn’t he have to loose a lot of weight? I don’t know about this one. Oh–well.
I think CM may have done about $1mil more last weekend if it wasn’t for the storm.
Isn’t he about due for a s/x fix? He can’t go for long.

—I’d like to see him do a good mystery/ suspense movie.

I hope he takes some accent coaching. The brogue IS impossible hard to get rid of. But he can do it if applies himself. he really is the Scottish version of matthew mcconaughey. Damn irish. Too good looking for the, no MY good….

this movie will do good but i think he might be too tall to play a soccer player. soccer players are short. right? or am i wrong?

@twitter: Alone this afternoon in the park. No party? No flight out? Of course he is alone. It was not his plan to be in NY. He is not a NewYorker. He is only in this city one month out of the whole year normally. He really lives in L.A. and movie sets where he is doted on.

—–would there really be many people out at a club in NY tonight?

i agree with what someone else said that it could cause problems by reopening old wounds. it depends on how the story is told. you know how men are.

@TNT:
Couldn’t he have caught a flight out of JFK on Sunday ? I didn’t think the storm hit NYC until Monday? Plus he could have driven further inland like Philadelphia and flew out some time on Sunday?
Thats a cool looking club, i think they may have one in Vegas to.

@Twitter: At a club again.

@DocP: No. Flights were ceased on Sunday in Ny, nj, and pa. He can get out on Wednesday earliest.
