    Awesome!!!! I can’t wait. I’m glad the original cast will be back. Gerry at his best!!!

  • GFW

    Wow, this is awesome news. Gerry is super busy for this year filming (possibly three film) and, trust me, fall 2015 will be here sooner than you think! Then to thyself is all I ask. Busy by design is good, but we (universal we) matter too.
    -
    Critics (I think) thought he was just a handsome mug for film, but actually he is a deeply thoughtful actor.

    awsome !!!!!!!!!!! aaron yes !!!!!!

  • GFW

    Gerry’s in a hit. Gerry’s in a hit. Gerry’s in a hit. He’s got his first sequel! Muscle man hero as the man on the quite down-low with all the secrets deeply hidden to use as needed or not (which I love by the way) movie or not I’m humongously proud of him.

  • GFW

    PS, Aaron was in a flop. Ops, it happens.

  • So

    Glad there’s a new thread with film news! I saw the articles elsewhere and hoped JJ would post it with some of the nice fun pictures from Bondi, but alas it is here nonetheless! :)
    So what is the timetable then for this to film if it isn’t coming out until next October? Seems a ways off and in a tighter schedule. I would have thought a summer or fall filming this year would have gotten it out for a Spring 2015 release. Better, however, to have the time and get it all done right. :)

  • Allison

    Really liked the 1st one., will see this.

    300 sequel was really lacking for him, aside from the quick shots of him, the other actor couldnt compare to Gerard as far as his charisma. I cant even remember his name, he was sort of staunched. Imagine the sex scene with eva green with gerard instead. i should stop……..

  • Scottie

    I can’t wait!! Glad there has been a new thread as well.

  • Amber

    Kind of strange to put out a release date before the film has shot one single frame. I read that Morgan Freeman passed on this one, too. It won’t have the same gravitas unless they can find someone as good as he is to fill the void.

  • just a thought

    So happy to hear he will have another movie coming out in 2014. Maybe he could even get recognition for his acting for a change, that would be around the time that movies come out that are considered for Oscar. Oh here I go having happy thoughts that others will attack.

  • S end

    @just a thought: What will this movie called and when will it be out. Is it httyd because I loved the first one.

  • Maddie

    You are angry because he out his p-enis in my v hole.

  • Jennifer Aniston

    Stfu maddie, he stuck his finger up my backside when taking a photo.

  • Politics!

    Obama sucks. Good to move the topic to a new thread. I can’t get excited about GB news that doesn’t happen until 18 months from now. Really!

    Obama sucks is all we have to work with right now. Yes, it’s depressing but the country’s gone to he l l and he has no leadership or foreign policy expertise. He’s cr a p p e d on our allies and not one world leader trusts or respects him.

    GOD HELP US.

  • Gerry’s mum

    @Maddie: Get a life and move on, you are a famewh ore.

  • Gerry’s mum like?

    MG said that his mum liked her. Was this true?

  • GFW

    Why I’m so hated because I feel Gerry has this within him too… like Russ at http://www.imdb.com/ (if this does not bring up The Water Diviner search it) which needs watching for anyone who enjoys acting, storytelling, and doing it with what they have after they’ve done what that is)… a love story for Russell. This, to me, is it and what doing it afraid… finding instead what he never thought hopeful… and forever hopeful. Do it.

  • Gerry’s mum

    @Gerry’s mum like?: No she’s a b itch. Pretty, but a b itch. Nice boobs and legs, but a b itch. Nice hair,but a b itch, made my son happy for a while, but a b itch.

  • Commitment?

    Why did mg and gb break up?

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    Awesome news….!!!! :) Look at how busy you’ll be NOW!

    Politically speaking, the whole American game has been rigged by big corporations, military vice, and pandering to the public.

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    It’s like singing an old irritating camp song every time a new thread is opened…..Dragging up old news. lol

  • no disrespect

    @Pamela:
    but what do you know of old news since you have only been follow Ge since OHF?

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    @no disrespect:

    Just what gets repeated on every new thread….Want me to go and research them all?

  • ladyb

    I liked it until towards the end when it starts to get very fake with the CGI.

  • No. She lied as usual.
  • Because she lied all the time
  • Daria K. from Virginia

    Kathryn, Dr Wesley says you left IMDB in a huff again but what’s new. You can’t get anyone to jump on the crazy Gerry roller coaster with you. His career has really slowed. This Egyptian movie might not be a big deal when it comes out. Why not go back to taking your meds again and make an appointment with your doctor? I’ll go with you to make sure you get seen. You need help.

  • Snoopy

    @no disrespect: She’s been around for years, don’t let her “oh I’m a newbie” act fool you. She has probably hundreds of socks, too. She’s followed or stalked Butler for a very long time, just like GFW and other cray cray fans have done.

  • So

    Much for discussing the movie in its own thread!

  • Hate that

    “cray cray ” that’s baby talk right? yuck Talk like an adult.

  • Observation

    @Commitment?:

    She’s mental.

    Good looking but mental.

    He’s better off in Oz with girls that are salt of the Earth, not manipulating gold diggers.

    Awesome news for the sequel, I am so happy for him that this is happening. He was excellent in it and will in the new one.

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    Well, technically, I did meet some of Gerry’s friends back in oh, GOD, 2007????? I’ve been a fan for a long time, I just didn’t stalk, or memorize, or post ever so psychotically, or worm my way into his life with CRAZY expectations. Nor did I use meeting his friends or become his friend to use to my advantage…Not like that. But carry on.
    Sorry, I do have a life….

  • Snoopy

    @Hate that: The post wasn’t addressed to YOU. “yuck”, isn’t that baby talk for poo? Did you yuck in your diapers again?

  • Definitely

    Listen, all bullsht aside, they look forward to reading whatever you have to say. No one ignores you.

    Stay sweet, ignore their unkind words and entertain. You could have them eating out of your hand, if you play your cards right.

    Think about it.

  • http://justjared lolita

    @Can’tGetEnough: CGE, thanks, that is great news. It sounds interesting also. So happy for him. I got to hand it to him, he really is lining up some good films. Good to see he is also producing.
    No wonder he looks so good lately, he must be very happy about what is happening in his career. Nice to see most of the actors will return.
    Have a good night to all.

  • Madalina

    @Definitely: Thank you I think so too. I am nice. Gerry still likes me.

  • Prancing Pony

    @lolita: Hi Lolita :) Totally agree with you. It’s all good news. :)

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    I think the new movie will be great. London will add a classy air to it too. Let’s just hope there’s stunt doubles for the fight scenes.

  • Watcher

    Morgan’s not in the sequel and says so. Scroll down to near the end.

    Fantastic news! Proof that we’ll see more than one film before we feast our eyes on GOE. I’m not surprised. It’s looking more and more like GOE is a very expensive CGI masterpiece. No worries! Sad but true that the real life actor’s parts are obviously very limited. Hey, it’s Hollywood. I can’t wait for all of it, but especially the PB remake. We should get to see a multi-dimensional Gerard Butler in that film. Hoping for a real ride and hoping it’s an Epic film. Best of luck to you GB! Your fans are pulling for you with all that you endeavor.

  • fromoz

    @Prancing Pony: Hi Pony, nice to see your smiling face. I saw the comment on the other thread about the meaning of ” spunky ” in NZ & Oz. Yes, it means hot, gorgeous, se#y & when especially noteworthy, it’s hunky spunky. I think G.B. falls into that category :-). Gerry sure has some projects on the go, busy man. We’ll be spoiled for choice when they all hit the theatres. Cheers :-)
    Hi to Lolita & CGE ( lovely to see you back posting, you were missed )

  • Prancing Pony

    @fromoz: Hi fromoz, great to see you here today! :) Yes lots of projects in the pipeline. I wonder when/where he’ll be shooting next? It’s a shame to think his time is Sydney is almost up – being there seems to agree with him. No surprises of course, it’s a wonderful place. :)
    And, I agree, it’s very good to see CGE posting again. :)
    Have a good one, fromoz. :)

  • saoirse

    @fromoz: @Prancing Pony: Hey lovelies! Nice catching you here! It’s looking like a fun and wild ride with our hot mess. Hope you are both well! (I had more to say about his biceps but changed my mind).

  • BMorningstar

    Fred like his bicep too and they cuddle well with manlove in Sidney. They gay we know and all out now. Ger not with any girl now and won’t be. He like men only.

  • Prancing Pony

    @saoirse: Hi there :))) No really, talk biceps! LOL In the last thread I would have been quite happy to talk about the relationship between GB and spunky…but…everyone else kept chatting about Barack Obama. What’s that about? LOL
    (no offensive to BO supporters…)
    Hope you are well too, Saoirse. :) (and happy birthday for the other day :))

  • um…

    @BMorningstar: are you on drugs or something?

  • fromoz

    @saoirse: Hi to you too saoirse. Oh please don’t change your mind. LOL. Looks like G.B’s time in Oz is coming to an end. I think my favourite photo of his time here has been the one of him at Bondi Beach walking out of the ocean. Now that one definitely falls in to the hunky spunky category. :-) Cheers.

  • Prancing Pony

    @fromoz: Oh, I’ve got a couple of contenders for Best Photo…how about the one at Madama Butterfy? Or the one of him smiling at the fashion show? Or the one that a tourist took of him down at Bondi (not a great description, I know)? Vote now JJers! lol So many photos, so little time… ;-)
    You’re probably right though fromoz, the photos of him at Tama are hard to beat. :)))

  • fromoz

    @Prancing Pony: Well, now you’ve got me thinking. Hard to choose when he rarely takes a bad photo. Have to congratulate you Pony. You predicted, before he even arrived, that there’d be some Bondi photos. Crystal ball ? tarot ? or just plain old common sense ? :-)
