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??

    Gerry is always out and about when he is in NYC. So many people are probably looking at the damages in their area and seeing what is open for services they may need. The areas with the most damage are off limits to all but the cleanup crews and government programs. I’m so shocked at the destruction this storm has caused. Here in WNY we were spared that horror. God’s blessings to all who are living through this disaster. Please be safe.
    CGE, hope things get better for you soon, hang in there dear lady.
    Maggie, my God you could have been killed, hope the doctors can repair all the damage to your leg and you are back to kicking up your heels soon.
    Ducky, Hello dear hope you are well.
    To all the JJr’s, take care and hope you are all safe and sound.
    I wonder if Gerry is going to have to lose a lot of weight to look like someone who is suffering from starvation for this part. It is not one of his better looks. I also don’t think all that up and down weight fluxuations is good for his general health. He does like to lean towards true to life stories, hope it does well for him. I still think OHF will be a hit for him, he is due.

  • Fan

    First, he has said how much he would rather be living in NYC so him being there is not a shocker. Sadly, he’s probably stuck there right now. Second, another soccer movie??? C’mon, Gerard! Make better choices for effs sake!

  • I just don’t buy it. i doubt he sleeps around as much as is made out to be on these threads. i just don’t buy it. i think there are people that just come to post hate and doesn’t matter who it is.
    -
    also, someone or several someone’s complains about him going out to parties….i say party pooper to them. there is nothing wrong with going out to parties with your friends or to make new ones. some people who are single live that lifestyle. it makes sense. and then there are people who have families who still go to parties and socialize with their friends. people who object to this in my opinion either are party poopers, anti social, just don’t like parties period, or are jealous. some people like to socialize and some don’t. it doesn’t make you a bad person if you go out to parties or hang with your friends.

    -
    people who are single should not isolate themselves.

  • i’m not into thrillers. i don’t go to see thrillers and mysteries are usually television dramas not box office fare.

  • exfantiredbyallthebs

    @Fan: perhaps .’choice’ is no longer something he has.? Read somewhere his los Felix house is transferred to his inc, so perhaps he is in hoc from project failures and simply needs to earn. Perhaps he can no longer afford to be choosy.
    Does he rent out his ny apartment too? He never lives there. Or was it sold? Film failures, huge hotel and travel costs from an itinerant lifestyle, how solvent is gb now?

  • thrillers and mysteries are b movies anyway

  • to exfan,
    -
    those questions are really none of your business.

  • alrighty

    @: If you think his behavior is okay for a middle-aged man, single or not, then you must be a teen.

  • no im single and graduated

    he is only. there are plenty of singles in his boat. why else are dating sites so popular. then add in all the divorcees. there are lots of single people. trust me. you must lead a sheltered life.

  • no im single and graduated

    he is only 40-ish. there are plenty of singles in his boat. why else are dating sites so popular? then add in all the divorcees. there are lots of single people. trust me. you must lead a sheltered life.

  • what is this ‘behavior’ you are talking about that is not okay ?

  • The Noise In The Walls

    #107 *** Not all thrillers are “B” movies…depends on the script..who’s directing and what the story is about..:)..Argo is doing quite well….Tinker Taylor faired well too….

    I have to agree with you though…going out to parties with friends is a good thing..I see nothing wrong with it…

    Hope Gerry is doing well..I saw Chasing Mavericks..It’s a good human story…not all about surfing…but about life as well…I guess the average movie goer doesn’t want a human story..they prefer CGI…and crash’em and bang’em flicks…with little or no character development..

  • the only thriller i can think of that isn’t a ‘b’ movie is silence of the lambs. but since i don’t go to them, i don’t know which ones are ‘good’ because i don’t like them anyway.

  • but thanks for your input
    -
    i have to go now

    happy halloween everybody!

  • The Noise In The Walls

    #115..Silence of the Lambs was good..:)..

    Happy Halloween to you too and everyone..If you are in the east coast…Be Safe!! :)…

    I may watch Dracula 2000 tonight..It maybe campy but I think Gerry gives a good performance…Loved 300!…and yes, Dear Frankie and RocknRolla…If there’s one thing in his performances..he gives it all he’s got.!!

    The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide became law on January 12.th, 1952 . Germany joined the Convention and admitted to commit genocide. Denial that the holocaust had taken place will be sentenced because of demagoguery.

    Unfortunately it is always the same . Hollywood has got no interesting ideas for a good movie, who cares … just let us figure out something about German cruel history.

    Mr. Butler calls some german friends, like for example the actor Till Schweiger.

    I am quiet surprised and dissapointed of him that he seems to have no problem to support illustrating germans in a way, how we are no more.

    There is a limit for everything in life, We already did and still pay for our guiltiness. It is a pitty that Mr. Butler is not able to see and appreciate it.

    @angelsrock: Angel, I hope so too. I know he is disappointed and hurt because of the poor CM showing. I’m going this weekend to see it. I know you said it was very good. I think he would be very good as an off beat detective, not like a James Bond type more like a Columbo type. Someone who would surprise you. He could be goofy and deadly at the same time.

    stop cursing and go to confession.

  • TNT

    @lol: In the article “it’s also the reason Gerard Butler will be on a couple of talk shows in another year or so, maybe telling another sort-of-humorous anecdote about getting injured before setting up a clip of a movie you’ll immediately forget about.  ”

    Unfortunately true.

  • Totally Useless Information

    @soccer
    You do realize you are defending Nazis don’t you. The Nazis who murdered millions of people in the name of racial superiority, raped Europe and started WWII. Is this the group you are afraid will ‘demonizes one group over another.’ Sweetie, you need a history lesson.

    …@ If you think GB doesn’t sleep around, I have a bridge for sale I’d like to show you.

  • Can’tGetEnough

    Thank you Loli and cupcake. I’m hanging in there. I’m not in a badly flooded area but I was able to get out for a bit today and I couldn’t believe how many trees are down in the roads along with smashed poles and transformers and wires all over the place. I swear I won’t have power or Internet until Christmas. It’s annoying but not devastating and I still have my cell to keep in touch with the world.
    Thanks to all who post any GB pics, tweets and links. When I can get JJ to load, I enjoy them. Have a great night.

  • Lord Love a Duck

    Hi Lolita, Cupcake, Angelsrock, God Bless you all and CGE, hope all is well with you. Cannot help but see the pictures of Sandy with disbelief. Hope too that all JJ’rs are safe. Anybody hear from Autumn lately?
    Lolita, thought about the weight thing too. Don’t lke that gaunt look on him, but think that was a bad time in his life. He didn’t look happy in any pictures either. Glad he is still in NYC. Seems to suit him well. Next week he’ll be traveling and that should be fun.
    Hoping that he will be on Craig Ferguson for PFK pr.
    Do take care and Happy Halloween to all. Ducky…[Lolita you stinker]
    p.s. are you well? Let us know how you liked CM. Going to try to catch it too this weekend.

  • hmmm

    you’re right. you are totally useless.
    just to bring you up to speed, this is the year 2012. that war is over and done with and time has moved on. stop living in the past or trying to relive it over and over again. this is a modern world. russia is not the bad guy. give it up already. sheesh. also, try a little forgiveness. for you, that might be hard. but give it the ‘ol college try.
    -

    oh you might want to look up propaganda in the dictionary. you don’t know what it means obviously.
    -
    as in stop it with the jew as poor helpless victim agenda already. they are not poor and helpless. they are taking advantage by playing the victim all the damn time. get over with it already.

  • hmmm

    oh yeah, in case you didn’t know. nazi is in the bible and it means prince of the day. that is according to jewish ritual every friday. so you are the one who is ignorant of the facts.

  • angelsrock

    @soccer:

    I was calling on Jesus for help. I need it sometimes when I read some posts here. Sorry if I offended you, soccer.

  • hmmm

    in the jewish mind you are a pagan or gentile. if you’re not a jew, you’re not righteous. just a small snippet of the way they actually REALLY think. they have an ‘us’ vs. ‘them’ mentality. everyone who is not a jew is a ‘them’.

  • angelsrock

    Oh Lord!!! Not cursing here. Just another ejaculation!! (That’s a term for a short spontaneous prayer)

  • Aussie

    Hello everyone!Did you guys miss me?:))
    I don’t have time to read all the comments that were written on this thread but it seems GB is in London at a soccer match!Oh what a beautiful city!I got to see it this summer!Nightie night!

  • Happy Halloween

    @hmmm:

    Are you ever happy, kind, pleasant, positive?

    @angelsrock: Well, good grief girl you need a name like mine!! Works for me.

    Script only to consider, but here already gone political debate! And what if the movie really will be released?
    Gerry does not do this movie !!! NО,NO,NO and NO!

    Going to throw this out for what it’s worth. So before you thumb me down, hope you read the above link. I’ve been trying to read up about the Dynamo game and the “Death Match” to understand what it is all about. I don’t know GB, just what is on the web and the gossip that I read but do take with a pinch of salt most of time.
    I don’t know if GB is political or defiant, but my guess would be more defiant. He does support Scotland independence, gave his support when the hospital wing was to close in Scotland etc. But I think we all know that he marches to a different drummer’s beat. Now that this movie was banned, is it possible that he chose to do it in defiance of that ban and tell the story come what may? Wish I knew and tell you the truth, I believe he would. I hope that he gets a world of support and believe this could be his defining moment. He is a good actor and with proper direction and script it will be epic.

  • I think

    @Lord Love a Duck:

    Well the so called “political correctness” just isn’t in this country. It’s a shame we can’t even discuss history without someone becoming offended. I thought we are suppose to learn from history so we can try not to repeat the bad but also learn from the good.

  • Anna

    Yep, sounds like a typical Gerard Butler movie. In other words, it’s going to flop.

  • Dina

    @Alanis: Her English is really weird. :/

  • meller

    @Alina:
    Why doesn’t MG belong here?? She’s GB’s confirmed girlfriend. You talk about all the other people in his life; his family, his friends, his co-stars and so on. Why not MG? I’m sure she’s an important part of his life right now. It just doesn’t make any sense.

  • Alanis

    @Dina:

    I’ve never read her English or heard her spoken English, but I think this is probably the google program that translates each word, rather than phrases. I hesitate to say anything else since people don’t want any mention of her on GB’s site.

  • TNT

    @meller: Because it makes many jealous and crazy. She is not their choice for Gerry. Too young, too plastic, too manipulative, too hot, blah blah blah. Their only choice is themselves.

  • Sock her

    @I think: So I believe GB was suppose to be at the Manchester United game in London with MG. Why would she go? She is into soccer?! She is into Ger. But he could not get a flight out.

  • Wrong

    @TNT: \Personally I think GB and Katherine Jenkins would make a beautiful couple. Of course she’s probably to good for him, he likes them down and dirty.
