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??

@I think: I think there are women in NY to have sex with so I wouldn’t be worried.

Clear from the coverage of the hurricane aftermath that way too many people did not take the warnings seriously enough – probably thought the hurricane wouldn’t hook left even though every respectable weather expert was saying it would and in spite of strong language from the governors and mayors. Though Mr. Butler does not live in the evacuation zone but rather close to it. Sure he is shacked up in Midtown somewhere.

@TeaCakes: WIFI – reported on CNN that they had 20 people sitting outside their satellite truck with their cellphones.

@Flavorofthemonth: A woman is never going to dictate his film choices, his personal interests outside of that area perhaps. Sadly I think he needs to go with more ruthless and logical strategy and that’s been his problem since 300.

Besides if that person keeps up her efficient climb up the Hollywood ladder she’ll be moving to LA sooner than later and likely not with GB.

Not like Ben Affleck who accepted then had to turn down directing the pilot of Homeland because he and Jennifer Garner have an arrangement about compromsing with their schedules as they do have children, though he is now kicking himself for that [glaring at Jennifer?]

@Whatshedonenow: You are clearly ignorant about soccer/football because the term Dynamo immediately evokes a reference to excellence and all you have to hear is the word Dynamo to know the movie is about soccer/football.

“I also got invited to a halloween party today that Gerard Butler is attending and of course I cant go because of work. ugh my life, what is it with his week. ! Well happy halloween everyone.”

It’s good a movie will be made about these particular tragic events in the history of which Word War 2 is full of.
I support Gerry if he made the choice based on this thought.

@Tumblr: Good to know a little bad weather hasn’t interfered with his party plans. *eye roll* Um – grab a broom, Gerry, and make yourself useful, ffs.

@twitter:
Sadly he won’t convince many of the JJ posgters that apparently hate him. I guess all the woman he f/cked and kicked to the curb are taking out there frustration. No other reason to look up info on someone that you hate!!

Not so much @ 10/31/2012 at 3:36 pm

@twitter: Someone’s having some twitter fun, because Central Park’s been closed since before the hurricane hit. Still is.

Give it up @ 10/31/2012 at 3:47 pm

@Shagged&Bagged: I realize attacking his detractors is your career Eve/BM, but your daily lectures won’t change a thing.

i think if the movie tries to raise hostilities again then its not a worthy cause. i don’t like seeing people getting glorified in war movies. it is a bunch of propaganda benefitting a particular world view. and i don’t like that because it stirs up the pot and demonizes one group over another. so in that sense it IS PROPAGANDA and will not help current events but create more problems. not worth it.

if its focused on soccer and this one person then it’ll be good.

i have to say what kinda person leads others to their deaths just for a game. ????

i doubt that women he had sex with are posting on a messageboard and i really don’t believe he sleeps around. i think its all made up bs.

@Let me see…:

I totally agree with you that he needs to stop playing the roles of real people or ones in books. All those bring an audience with expectations, having read the book or having seen a character played previously by another actor they will be comparing him to.. The subject matter of the movies he’s doing have such limited appeal. He needs to do original stories with original characters that he can make his own and that have a wide appeal such as thrillers, mysteries and good dramas. He isn’t doing the kind of characters that he does best like in Dear Frankie. He needs to play real in depth characters we can get involved with and relate to.

@Give it up: not sure who this is but I’m not Eve. I usually post as MIP.

@:
I think he does, why so much hate for someone you don’t even know? Sorry but you know the old saying.
“hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”
Except for maybe hurricane Sandy.
