Vin Diesel has been offered the role of Lynch, but it is still too early to know if he will be part of the adaptation, which has been in the works since 2007.

The video game centers on “Kane, a death row inmate who, along with a schizophrenic killer named Lynch, is sprung from prison to retrieve a stolen fortune. Kane travels to Los Angeles, Japan and Cuba, with Lynch acting as the team’s watchdog in order to save his wife and daughter.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Gerard Butler’s role in Kane & Lynch?

    Good for you Gerry, keep the projects coming.

  • http://yesyes! ASIANS REALLY CAN READ MINDS!!

    They can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds!!! They are trying as hard as they can to hide it!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

  • bohemian

    love it when he keeps working, 2014 is looking good.

  • I don’t like Mondays

    @bohemian: Unless there is some quick turnaround the only film in 2014 you can hear him in will be How to Train Your Dragon II. Probably be 2015 before anything hits the theaters. Better working than not.

  • cupcake

    New project in the works. Good news Gerry. Keep them coming. Hi everyone.

  • Hmmm

    Sooooo, the Victoria’s Secret fashion show is on in NYC on the 13th???
    Guess we know where Gerry will be then!!! LOL.

  • BMorningstar

    Boring old stuf same as ever. When he getting something new? No Burns any more?

  • ????

    @Hmmm: Who is this Victoria?

  • snap

    @Hmmm: Where is Leo? He’s overdo for a trade in. Have you seen the Romanian Victoria Secret model yet? The Romanian press claimed Leo’s got his eye on her.

  • gossipguy

    @snap: Are you talking about Diana Moldova? She’s too old for Gerry at 26. I think he likes them way younger. She’s beautiful and very nice.

  • Uranus Psychic # 111369

    @gossipguy: No come on now you know Leo likes them barely post pubescent himself.

    And not this one poor thing

  • snap

    @gossipguy: The latest Romanian VS model is Andreea Diaconu and she is 21.

    She has a Miranda Kerr type quality to her and she was hired after Miranda was let go from VS.

  • Eggnog Rum

    Looks like Gerry is throwing himself back into work again but nothing he’s doing grabs me. Sorry girls, I know you think he’s a great actor but this newest possible role is not interesting to me. The Egyptian one sounds better.

  • BMorningstar

    Gerry’s new project looks very now. What a visionary he is.

  • BMorningstar

    BMorningstar wonders how gossipguy knows she is very “nice”? When I was 21 I was very “nice” too.;)

  • Kim

    My advice to Gerry’s fans right now is don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched. There was a list of film announcements for Gerard that was too keep him busy from 2012 to 2013. One by one those films disappeared. I’m getting a bit of deja vu right now. We’ll have to wait and see how many of these films actually get made.

  • BMorningstar

    I have always wanted so suck Gerry’s massive 9″ co_ck. Every single time I toss back Bud longneck I think of taking him in deep.

  • BMorningstar

    Burns for my Ger is what I want to see. Burns and Budweiser longnecks would be bliss for me.

  • @BMorningstar

    ROFLMAO! Best post in months. Thanks for the laugh!

  • BMorningstar

    I was so “nice” that at frat parties at my Uni I was girl most successful taking in more longnecks than all my “sisters.”
    I love to suck them long, long, necks.

  • Eggnog Rum

    That Romanian model looks like the one he was talking to in NYC

  • Liberia?

    Excerpt from new interview…. Did Gerry slip into Liberia and no one knew?
    “If we had to guess though, we’d bet that Butler won’t actually get around to taking that time off. The actor wrapped up our interview in order to jump on a plane to Africa. Far from the glare of the spotlight, Butler has been quietly working with several charities, including Mary’s Meals. The Scottish relief organization serves meals to impoverished children in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and South America. While cars and yachts may be nice, it was clear what the actor’s priorities are the moment we brought up his charity work.
    “In just ten years they’ve gone from 200 meals a day to 800,000. It’s incredible what they do, and it’s to encourage kids to go to school, and also nourish them because – we talk about long-term perspectives, but what’s the point if the kids don’t survive in the first place? Or they can’t concentrate and learn anything because they’re so hungry?” Butler said. “In Malawi alone, we’re feeding 500,000 children, which is more than 20% of the primary school population. Mary’s Meals are just starting out in Liberia, so I’m going to Liberia with them.”
    “And then I think straight after that I’m going to Haiti with another charity I’m involved with, Artists for Peace and Justice. They’re building this massive school in Haiti, which is earthquake-proof and equipped with all modern computers. It’s the only school that will take kids from 5 years old all the way through to college age, so it’s 11 years of education with qualified teachers – because many of Haiti’s schools don’t have qualified teachers, so the education is poor. They’re taking account of everything that is lacking in the current system and building these huge schools, because most schools there have just 100-150 kids. This will see 3,000 kids being educated from the Cité Soleil area, the poorest area of Haiti, which itself is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere.”

  • too late dargabriel

    I agree that he looks great lately. Don’t let Dar fool you. She’s been convinced for years that she’s his soulmate and won’t accept anyone telling her otherwise. Whatever, there’s plenty of loons on this board.

  • Carl

    I think a movie with Vin Diesel and Gerry would be very interesting. Bring it on. Can’t wait.

  • @Liberia

    @Liberia?: Gerry slips into a lot of places without media attention.

  • Fortunes of Fate

    Is this the soul mate with the secret identity?
    In October 2012, a poster called “a, b, see?” responded to the psychic’s posts, claiming that she was writing for his twin flame (probably herself).
    This is her last bit of correspondence on JJ:
    “I don’t know where they go from here. His twin will be busy throwing herself into volunteering and traveling to see her friends before she moves to help with children’s charities in poverty stricken areas.”
    Maybe she’s working in Liberia or Africa and they will reunite? From the timeline the psychic already gave, I doubt they would just now be meeting for the first time.
    Remember, this was all posted back in October 2012 and it seems like more pieces of the puzzle are falling in to place.
    I’m not saying conclusively that the person posting as “a, b, see?” last year, is his soul mate, more as more information comes to light, it does appear that Gerry may have found “the one”. Finally : )

  • You know

    @Fortunes of Fate: Who it is,
    you just can’t accept it.

  • Fortunes of Fate

    @You know: Sorry? If you know then please share, because I don’t know the woman’s identity. You’re ahead of me on that : )


    @You know:
    GET IT?

  • Fortunes of Fate

    I don’t think the poster meant Madalina. The whole premise of my theory is supporting the psychic’s claims, which are founded on the break up of his relationship with Madalina. If they are still together, then I read the psychic’s predictions completely wrong.

  • dargabriel

    it’s Not Very Nice To Call Me Names, My Protector Finds It Unacceptable. I’m Just Sharing Inside Info. If Butler Really Desires To Be With His Other Half Then This Will Happen, But If Not, Then Both Will Keep Seeing Others. You All Live Specifically In 3Rd Diminsion Only, you’ve No Clue How Spiritually Powerful Mac, Butler Is,Lol. He Is Very Capable Of Puppet Mastering All Of You, So Be It. You Are All Wrong About Him Being With His Other Half Not Yet, He Will Shout From Buildings When These Two Angels Unite. Unless They don’t Want To Stop Cheating On Each Other, Sex Is Major For Them. Sex Will Happen With Others B4 They Meet. And Yes, Butler Will Put The Fear Of GOD In His Other Half About Being With Others And Consequences, He Protects But Also Enforces Higher Law, Gods Court, Matrimony, Being Faithful, He Takes To Heart. Whatever You Fans ,Fanatical Thoughts, Go Right Ahead, But I Know what This Man Does And What He Is. dargabriel

  • You know

    @MG IS OUT OF THE PICTURE!: Whatever helps you sleep at night.

  • Fortunes of Fate

    You seem to write a lot of your posts with a certainty that in this moment, appears to be unjustified. I have always loved reading what you have to share Dar, but in this instance, I think you are off the mark.
    Way off the mark.
    A lot of your posts are ambiguous and rarely make much sense to other posters, which makes me wonder why keep writing here in that particular style.
    Personally, I think it’s because you don’t have anything concrete to share that can be verified. And right now, the predictions of the psychic take precedence, as at least there have been confirmable events that have taken place in the last ten months or so.
    Dar, cryptic messages don’t always reveal a cryptic (and psychic) mind.

  • JS

    Another new project, good for for you Gerry and good luck.

  • JS

    @Liberia?: He very well could have been to Liberia. Mary’s Meals is one of his favourite charities and he does a lot for them.

  • JS

    @Ann Orexi: You made allegations against me in the previous thread claiming that everything I say is lies. That is a nasty thing to say and I would ask you to tell me what I have said that is a lie.

    @Wrong: Thank you very much for coming to my defence.

  • JS

    I must admit I have twisted things with regard to MG because I didn’t want her with Gerry. I want him for myself and if I can’t have him I’ll bring pain to the one he loves. She is beautiful and it makes me have feelings of jealousy I can’t control.

    Why do psychics have to ask you your name ?

  • psychic insider

    I have worked for a psychic for a while, and met many through my life. Mainly because I have myself psychic abilities and I often sought help to control them, or not letting them overtake my life.
    One thing I have learnt with my personal experience: You cannot summon spirits at your own will, who tells you they can lies. Many of them are incredibly skilled cold readers, which answers to TELL ME question: They are cold reading. All the questions they ask you are for that reason.
    A genuine psychic will not need to ask you much except for confirmation about what they “see” or “feel” or “hear”. All they can see is the present, the future is shaped by our thoughts, which can always change.
    Future predictions are often lucky guesses, and they are by no means set in stone. Because they guessed right one bit, it doesn’t mean the rest will happen. It is often because of the trust or faith the person has in the psychic that they can mould the events to suit the reading.
    Our minds are very powerful and what we think/feel we bring, we are also very malleable and we can see signs even in the most generic of readings. Which is why being a psychic is such a lucrative business.
    It is also why I chose to step away from their games, and came to terms with my personal ability, which I cannot use to suit my needs, but it comes only when it is strictly necessary.
    No spirit would contact this plane were it not extremely necessary, usually in a life or death situation, when it is not the time for that person to die.
    As per the talk about soul mates/twin flames, I have to admit that the some of the guesses where very lucky, some not so, but they have never been confirmed by the direct person the foresight was made about, and being it all speculation I still think that it’s all up in the air, anything can happen.
    Specifically in GB love life, he only can bring himself his true love in his life, when he is ready he probably will, but no one can see when, because it is mostly all up to his soul disposition and that can change according to his will, not to anyone’s guess.
    The biggest gift we have in this plane is free will, only ourselves can have a foresight in our future, and that’s because it is only our thoughts and feelings that can change it, not anyone else.

  • Back again Firefly?

    @psychic insider:
    or should we call you pfft…..lame? you just won’t quit will you? LOL!

  • Identity Revealed

    “If you know then please share, because I don’t know the woman’s identity.”
    Identity? Angelina Jolie with Brad Pitt. This couple is already a couple. The psychic was on the wrong actor’s thread.
