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.

    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.

    @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?

    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.

    #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.

    #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, 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.
