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??

    You can believe what you want to believe, but with the twitter “evidence” and the Canada AM appearance, I choose to believe he is in NYC. Canada AM is a reputable show that’s been on for (probably) my whole life and I’ve seen them regularly announce “Previously taped” when an interview was done during a time prior to being aired. When they said “Live from New York – Good morning, Gerard”… I believe that it was Live from New York this morning.
    IMO This “where’s waldo” game is a waste of energy, but I guess if you have nothing better to do then have at ‘er.

    This is the kind of movie I expected to do Gerry. I think very good idea. It’s a movie that sounds like a lot of drama and action but such action motivator. Sounds like a good idea, a great challenge but the desicion is Gerry and producers. I wish that the movie takes place and that Gerry is the protagonist. Not so important if in Europe. but we can see the movie.

  • Maybe he didn’t

    @Maybe he cancelled:
    Look at nov 6th it says guest interview TBA which means to be announced. I bet that’s Gerry, they tape the shows then air them later.

  • Thursday’s child

    @huh?: Here’s the thing. I don’t know if she is or isn’t but it is strange that if she felt at liberty to post things about her “boyfriend” wouldn’t we see photos of her and Gerry all through her fb? Also, if some photos are just for friends and family, she could make those private so no one else could see them but her friends and family. She’s leaving them out for all to see. She’s not going to get the PR either if she doesn’t.

    And I’m sure Gerry told her all about some of the problems many of his gf’s, like Bianca, had with the crazy fans perhaps when using it as an excuse to keep her under wraps. I’m sure in her 24 year old brain that she figures no one will scare her off and she’ll just show them! That’s what I think and it’s very possible she is doing exactly what some suspect she is and as far as him knowing about it, who knows. If he does, shame on him.

    It’s obvious to me that when they were here, it was kept pretty quiet except for fans knowing about it. But when she got over in Europe, suddenly it was everywhere over there. That just seems odd to me and very suspicious.

    You reap what you sow, as they say and if this is what has been happening, it will come back to bite someone in the butt. What a story that would make on TMZ that a celeb’s gf is taunting his fans through facebook. They’ll both look like fools.

    “Monday, November 05, 2012
    Chelsea Lately
    This interview DOES NOT have an air yet, but will air the 2nd week after the opening of Chasing Mavericks. For now, we have listed it on the dates from November 5-9 and will update when we know more. Check your local listings for air times.
    Event Type: Television (US)”

    It sounds as though this interview was taped earlier than the Nov 5-9 time period. Can’t imagine his flying to LA to do an interview for CM when he has to fly to Dubai before Nov. 7, especially since CM did so badly. Wouldn’t be surprised if they scratch the interview.

  • A different view

    @CommentsPage: Wow, reading those comments made by men was like being on another planet. It’s interesting to see a conversation more grounded in reality instead of blinded by female hormones. This one was one of my favs:

    “The printer left out the comma in “Gerard, Butler” when they did his business cards so when he arrived in Hollywood people kept putting him in movies when he just wanted to bring them caviar which he sometimes spits in.”

    These are definitely worth a read, lol.

  • Rippin

    Suspect Ger’s PR peeps are posting to keep us guessing. But they know we know better. Maybe silly newcomers will believe them.

  • w

    Geez people, does it REALLY matter if Gerry’s in London or if he’s in NYC???

  • I think
  • Pic

    That girl is really, really pretty!

  • Maybe

    No wonder he proposed, she looks like his type.

  • Trying to figure it out

    The game was between Chelsea and Manchester United. Is Gerry a fan of either of those teams? I didn’t think so. It would appear that is was also played on Halloween night, when he was supposed to be in NYC.

  • SouthernBelle

    @I think:

    I don’t understand. Why are you posting an Oct. 2009 pic of GB with Liz Hernandez? Not being sarcastic – did I miss something in another post? Thanks.

  • Chance

    As a producer, he attempted films with less than stellar box office draw which leads to believe he may have a little trouble meeting some of his financial obligations. And all his time with his gf, his old buddies must also be scratching their heads. He may be hiding out to clean-up and regroup by taking on this soccer role and getting rid of relations he has no time for.

    He is still well off, so Little Maddie will not run away.

  • The Noise In The Walls

    #264 Not sure why you refer to her as “Little Maddie”..she’s a big girl..meaning..tall..and sorta lanky and it helps that she wears tall 4″ heels…but you could be right Chance…although…. if his financial situation persists…..she’ll be long gone…

  • http://JJ Ggfblx

    @SouthernBelle: on post 222 and post 259 they are of the same girl and him different dates, to throw you off track. Same surroundings same clothes taken in oct 2009, not 2012.false tweet.@Trying to figure it out: don’t think he was at Halloween party. Don’t think he made the match ,most scots like man /united and Alex Ferguson is Scottish manager he grew up in Gerard’s area in Scotland.Ii do think he is in London.

  • huh?

    @Thursday’s child: “Also, if some photos are just for friends and family, she could make those private so no one else could see them but her friends and family.”

    How do you know there aren’t private photos? You don’t, because they are Private.

  • Sel

    @The Noise In The Walls:
    Maddie is a friggin skyscraper. Which of course only makes her seem even more tranny-like.

  • other food for thought

    Rumor is he may have picked up a little indy film called Rumor of Wars filming in Gun Ru aka Grand Rapids Michigan starting perhaps November 13th. Start date is not yet totally clear. Some of the people cast already mention they are working with Gerard on this film. Eric Roberts and Brian Bosworth already attached according to a guy who is either an associate producer or production manager. The director/ producers are bit green maybe some guys he befriended when filming MGP? Not yet listed in IMDB but casting notices are out in a few places. The movie is for real but if GB is cast as the lead or in any role who knows, could be bogus or producers using GB’s name to draw talent etc.

  • SouthernBelle

    @other food for thought:

    Nov. 13 date came from gerrybutlerspantry from someone saying that he/she had a part and would be shooting that day. Unless he’s dumped the Dubai watch gig, I don’t see how he could do this movie.

  • Chance

    @SouthernBelle: Nov 13 is his bday. Maybe he starts the movie later.

  • Chance

    @The Noise In The Walls: Little = very young and immature.

  • other food for thought


    Don’t get your point.The Dubai gig is in November 7th. He won’t dump it as I suspect it’s a big appearance fee he can’t afford to pass up nor piss off the watchmakers for which he is spokesmodel for. Gerry will go there at the last possible moment and go onto the next destination wherever that might be when the event is over. Travelling half way around the world for a day or two is no big deal for this guy if the price is right.. The regulars have seen it time and time again. Gerry is still a big enough star certainly in indy terms that producers will arrange things around his schedule. But it’s unconfirmed rumor at this point, interesting but unconfirmed.

  • other food for thought

    @Chance: If his birthday is actually a factor in respect to whether or not he works, he really needs to give his head a good shake, the one on his shoulders.

  • littlebirdie

    @wake up:

    I don’t know if you’ve been watching the reports or not but if you have then you would know that there were still a lot of leaves on the trees. One of the reports was showing the heavy wet snowfall that was clinging to the leaves and braches and making them so dangerous. Limbs and trees were falling under the weight and blocking roads, killing people when trees fell on them and cars. Many areas, even midtown MY didn’t have as much damage, mostly power outages. That was why so many people were out and about trying to keep warm and shop and eat where there was electricity. Not all areas had mandatory evacuations which is why Gerry probably didn’t leave NYC. His area wasn’t predicted to be hit as heavily.

    @Alina: The Lady doesn’t appear to want to answer Jackie’s tweet. And Jackie, I would change your moniker here because you’ve given away so much information about yourself that it’s obviouis who you are by your tweet.

    Saw CM this evening. It was Family Night with husband and our 4 kids aged 14 to 7. In all fairness to my tribe and putting all bias about Gerard aside, it was a truly good family movie. Everybody loved it for a few reasons. The thrill of working for your dream and actually touching that dream was the common echo with all of mine. My oldest daughter loved the character development and my boys loved the skater parallel. The cinematrography might take your breath away if you get into it. It was my favorite part. My youngest might become a marine biologist after this, on the heels of Dolphin Tale. ??? Anyway, good family times. Hope it gets the attention of more parents of ‘tweens. They seem to be the most accepting audience. Good luck, Gerard! My family of 6 did our part!

  • Not too smart

    These PR wizards, or whomever it is that comes up with these brilliant ideas to cover his tracks, should be canned. Guys, at least cover your tracks a little better, geeeezus. Same shirt, same hair, three years apart. Unbelievable amateurs.

  • SouthernBelle

    @other food for thought:

    The link I posted gives the dates of filming as Nov 5 thru Nov 17. The 13th is the date that some extra is going to film (per a GB fan site). Nothing was said about GB filming on Nov. 13.

    I don’t think he’ll give up the Dubai thing either, certainly not for an indie film. I would think that he would have to leave for Dubai no later than Nov. 5 and not be back before Nov. 9 which would give him six days to film. Maybe he would do it, but I doubt it, especially since the Rome Film Festival runs Nov 9 – 17.

    EXCLUSIVE: Gerard Butler Spotted On The Streets Of Manhattan In NYC

  • TeaCakes

    @Dohhh: Agree with you on that. I bet he took off on Sunday after he went to that Saturday night Halloween party. There are no pictures of him since Saturday night. He’s in London with Maddie and safe from the disaster in NYC.

  • indie

    Wait, what’s this?! Something different. That sounds very cool!

  • psychic predictions

    London to Dubai on the 6th or 7th, Dubai to Rome on the 9th. Stays in Europe through b-day and Thanksgiving, returns in early Dec to LA or NY to begin promo tour for PFK.

  • Alina

    I did not mean women! HAHA! Look at Gerry and his clothes! It’s 2009!

  • SouthernBelle

    @psychic predictions:

    IAWY. He’s scheduled for the talk show circuit Dec. 2 – 4.

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen


    It seems to matter here immensely. I don’t get it either. But to each their own I guess.

  • SouthernBelle


    Ok, I get you – same shirt, same background. Lady La posted pic three years later. Sorry, my brain switched to “off.”

  • Chelsea Handler

    @One thing’s for sure:
    I’ve had so many monikers including others (except for LOL’s ) it doesn’t really matter. If you guys want to follow my tweets I don’t care. I have to warn you I tend to post copious amounts of pics of my dog. I have to agree with Alina I think thats an old pic of gerry from the tweeter called LA Lady. She hasn’t responded which is never a good sign.

  • Not where, who

    @Anastasia Beaverhausen: I don’t think anyone cares where he is, per se. It’s a battle between those who don’t want to believe he ran back to be with Macaroni, and those who believe that’s where he is. That is all.

  • Totally Useless Information

    I don’t care if GB is in New York City, L.A., London or Where Ever City with Little Maddie, Ronnie, Ariel or whomever. But, my interest piqued with the possibility of that new movie. Sounds like a possible winner and I hope it’s true.

  • TeaCakes

    @psychic predictions: His few fans won’t admit it but he’s got to meet Maddie’s family at some point, too. Maybe he’s planning a Romanian holiday with his lady love. He can’t spend all his time pounding the pavement in NYC hoping that the pappys find him and snap pics of him.

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen

    @Not where, who: m

    Yes I know, either way, does it truly matter? He is where he is and he’s with who he’s with. When there are more important issues in ones own life, things as such do not matter.

  • What would you do

    Okay lets take a poll, how many of you would be upset if your boyfriend/husband/significant other youls prefer to go to some Halloween parties rather than be with you??

    I would be upset, thats not a good sign especially since they were talking about hurricaine Sandy before the weekend. So he knew the weather was going to be bad.i watched the news when this storm was still out in the atlantic. They pretty much predicted its path right up through NY so it seems to me that he still prefers to party.

  • Lyla J.

    Coming back to find negative thumbs for my family’s wide-scope review of CM. WOW! Sorry I shared all that. I know I have been down on Gerard lately because I feel let down as hell about his honesty issues. It’s probably just me because I have had a crush on him since I was a teenager and saw him in Attila. I have held out hope for him as an actor who can relate to his audience. Well, he did just that in CM because I saw it for myself. My family had no preconceived notions about him in any way. And and yet they all got the connection in their own way. He’s not a total failure.

  • SouthernBelle

    @Anastasia Beaverhausen:

    “Yes I know, either way, does it truly matter? He is where he is and he’s with who he’s with. When there are more important issues in ones own life, things as such do not matter.”

    That being said, nothing about him should be worthy of comment, so should’t we ALL stop coming here reading and commenting?
