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??

    @Lyla J.:
    You can’t let others peoples opinions affect you. Especially people you don’t even know. In the end its your opinion that matters. Peer pressure is the one thing that all people suffer from which is wrong. Don’t go with the crowd, be an innovator.I gave your post a thumbs up. i liked the movie to.

  • Lyla J.

    @SouthernBelle: That would be the wisest choice, but it will never happen. Too many sad souls who choose to have nothing else to do but troll. Trolls, even you should hear my words. CM is a good movie and you should go see it while it’s in theaters. The acting is good, the cinematography is great. An inspiring story for all ages. Thanks, Gerard. You gave me a little bit of ammunition for defending you….for a little while at least. lol

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen

    @SouthernBelle:

    Possibly. However, I’ve expected more here and there. I usually come to see if the posters I love have something significant to say. *shrugs*

  • Lyla J.

    @What would you do: Thank you! I have never followed the crowd. As an overall Gerard naysayer for a while I am happy to now say….GO SEE CHASING MAVERICKS! It will make you feel good. Everybody could use a little of that.

    Well it’s tweet sightings of Gerry EVERY DAY since the storm started, including a photo of him taken in NYC yesterday, versus zero proof of any kind that he’s in London.
    .
    Common sense tells you he’s in NYC. But common sense is in short supply around here.
    .
    And, don’t start with the fake tweet cr/ap. We’ll get a fake tweet here and there, but multiple tweets for days on end, all placing him in the same city? That’s never happened. He’s in NYC — it’s the only logical conclusion.
    .
    Show me a shred of frickin proof he’s in London? You’ve got nothing. No photos, no sightings from the public. Do you morons actually believe he could be in London and yet not one member of the public has seen him there yet? Because as part of your tweet conspiracy theory he must also be magically erasing any tweet sightings of him in London from the internet. An impossible thing to do, but it must be what you believe. Because no way would he be in London all this time and not one member of the public has tweeted a sighting. Impossible. He has never been able to go to London under the radar for days on end and never be spotted. Never.
    .
    However, he’s been seen all over New York — literally every day.
    .
    Some of you are so obsessed with Madalina that you’ve stopped thinking logically. Simple common sense goes out the window in exchange for ludicrous conspiracy theories about daily fake tweets appearing in NY, a truly magical ability to erase any tweets from London, and a Harry Potter invisibility cloak you apparently think Gerry has been wearing in London all this time.
    .
    It’s like Madalina has made you guys collectively insane. Every little thing Gerry says or does, you think it’s about her. Everything she does, you think it’s about him. It’s like watching a collective mental illness hit the JJ threads these days. But carry on with your conspiracy theories and your magical thinking. The rest of us will just watch and shake our heads, and wonder how a 24 year-old girl could make grown women so obsessed and paranoid.

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen

    @SouthernBelle:

    And what I mean by that, is I come on to these threads for them, not a “where’s Waldo/Gerard B even though it will never have anything to do with me and my life” marathon. Sorry no tolerance for bs today.

  • Lyla J.

    @Anastasia Beaverhausen: You seem like a real sweetheart! Loved your story of the graveyard in Salem, MA. You go girl! Never let your monster lay down.

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen

    @Lyla J.:

    Thank you! I’ve had a horrible day, probably shouldn’t have come on. I don’t want to step on any toes. I will go see “Chasing Mavericks”, maybe it will make me more chipper again. ;)

  • liar liar pants on fire

    @Renee: Actually she lies about her age, it states on the modeling agency that shes registered with she is 25. They have to be accurate or else they can be sued for fraud from companies that use their services.

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen

    @Lyla J.:

    Salem was too fun, and funny. It was a great trip. And so very interesting! A lot of history in that town. Thanks again, you made me feel better.

  • SouthernBelle

    @Anastasia Beaverhausen:

    You must be disappointed most of the time since there is little said here that is significant. JJ is merely proof that sometimes mindless activity is therapeutic. For the last few months, posters here are angry, aggressive, argumentative, and defensive. You might consider exchanging email addresses with the posters you love.

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen

    @SouthernBelle:

    Why don’t you be quiet in regards to me and let me complain about the nonsensical if I want to, and you worry about where Gerard B is every second if you want to. I don’t want to be rude, but I will not be insulted.

  • angelsrock

    Lyla, you know some poster here thumb down anything at all positive about Gerry or his movies. I’m glad your family enjoyed it. I’ve talked to lots of people who want to see it. And those I know who’ve seen it, give it nothing but praise. It’s not for real young children, maybe 9 and up. But it is a great family movie. And if you’re tired of the usual helping of CGI and violence and ridiculousness, it’s a nice story about real people.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    he’s in nyc and went to low-key halloween parties. it does not mean anything against madalina, who also went out on halloween. they are separated by distance. they can both go out and have fun wherever they are. these are modern times. they are not married to each other. they can have fun with other people besides each other. this is 2012 we are talking about here. also, they are not from a culture that is jealous and possessive like some of you seem to be in.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    Also, there are no papps in nyc at this time. if you don’t work for the media officially, you are not getting in.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    he’s probably enjoying a little bit of freedom from papps for once.

  • Lyla J.

    @Anastasia Beaverhausen: It’s always good to feel better. Don’t stop sharing your bits of life here and there. For better or for worse, Gerard wouldn’t have many of us if we didn’t make aquaintance with each other. Truth! Gerard would be lost without us.

  • cupcake

    Hello ladies. I hope all are well. Things sre trying to get back to normal. Slowly but surely. No news from the g man. Oh well.

  • Lyla J.

    @angelsrock: My feelings exactly. It is a good choice for everyone. That is why I am so excited about it! I still think MGP was a better performance from him, undoubtedly his best yet. But he handled this role well with the help of an amazing co-star in Jonny Weston. FYI, that kid will go places hopefully. Note to Kid: Learn from Gerard…Don’t sell out to HW!!!

    @cupcake: Hello and good night cupcake.

    @I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    People in love want to be together and will usually go to any length to be together so what you write is nonsense. And please, jealously and possessiveness is common in all cultures. Did someone bring jealously and possessiveness up? I guess I missed it.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    there are couples where one person travels for work all the time. are you saying that travelling partner has to stay in their hotel room, eat tv dinners and be lonely? not have a social life or even explore the sights?
    -
    i just think you are being immature and selfish as well as jealous and possessive.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    and another thing, there are cultures that are jealous and possessive and I DON”T LIKE THEM!!!!

    -
    you must from one of those cultures because of your reaction.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    jealousy and possessiveness is rarely, if ever, a good thing.

  • Guess what

    @I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE:

    THEY DON”T LIKE YOU!! I see you have a new moniker LOL.

  • Totally Useless Information

    @I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    You missed the point which is people want to be together, not people should pine away for each other. Believe what you will about normal human emotions, and good luck.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    LOL

    im not LOL
    LOL is a jealous person. couldn’t you tell?

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    yes people want to be together, but sometimes they can’t be. and honestly, some people need breathing room. it doesn’t mean they don’t love the other person.
    -this is a case where they cannot be together because of work, distance, and an unusual circumstance. a major destructive storm. they aren’t pining away for each other, like some overly dramatic school kids or mushy love movie.
    -they both have money and are well off.
    -they aren’t hurting at all.
    -they both have the money and opportunity to travel and see the sights and right now, that’s what is gonna happen.

    -
    like it or lump it.

  • Guess what

    @Totally Useless Information:
    I agree, when couples spend a lot of time apart the relationship tends to dissolve. People who are in love want to spend time together. It literally hurts when they are apart from each other to long. It has nothing to do with jealousy or possesiveness.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    also they are both social, so they are going to socialize and go to parties and make new friends and connections. that’s reality.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    to guess what: that has not been my experience. i find it hard to believe that you hurt. your feelings hurt. maybe. but actual hurt and pain. NOT!

  • Guess what

    @I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE:
    Clearly you have never been in love.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    actually i have many times. clearly you are immature and have not grown up.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    I know of people who have been separated for long periods of time because of work and money and they are/were still happily married. you are not very informed and have a long way to go in relationships. i don’t think you could handle a relationship that matured or was faced with difficulties due to circumstance.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    gb is not a teenager, he is an older mature man. he has also been faced with loss at a young age. he is a lot more mature then you ever will be.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    also, maybe you shouldn’t sleep around so much. you can’t seem to handle it very well.

  • I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE

    I DON’T LIKE THEM. I DON’T LIKE THEIR CULTURE AND I DON’T LIKE THEIR RELATIONSHIP STYLE. I DON’T LIKE JEALOUSY OR POSSESSIVENESS. YES, THERE REALLY ARE PEOPLE LIKE ME OUT THERE. JEALOUSY AND POSSESSIVENESS GRATES ON OUR NERVES.

    @Renee:

    I’m sorry, but the whole tirade on the morons here not using any logic really tickled me. Especially after this comment you made. “He has never been able to go to London under the radar for days on end and never be spotted. Never.” I would think that “logic” would tell you that if he really was under the radar you wouldn’t know it, would you? Because there would be no “proof” that he was there. So I’d say he was successful at being under the radar if he really wanted to be. Having no so called “proof” doesn’t mean something didn’t happen. Isn’t that logical. I think maybe logic would tell you that if he IS spotted that maybe he wasn’t trying to be “under the radar” in the first place? Just a thought from a JJ moron. :)
