Gerard Butler Gets to Work Filming 'Den of Thieves'

Gerard Butler has begun shooting his new flick Den of Thieves!

The 47-year-old actor was spotted on the film’s set on Tuesday (January 31) in Atlanta, GA.

The upcoming movie also stars 50 Cent and follows an elite crew of bank robbers as they set out to steal the $120 million cash that is taken out of circulation and destroyed by the Federal Reserve every day.

A few days before filming started, Gerard took to his Twitter to share a photo with his co-star.

“#DenOfThieves boot camp with the man @50cent,” he captioned the image.

    The picture with 50 cent – Gerry looks like he is trying too hard to look like a badass.

  • AbbyRichter

    What’s the polite male equivalent of “she’s kinda curvy”?
    Kidding! He looks good. Thick. Yeah, thick….fat? Lol.

  • Pamela

    He looks more jolly.

  • AbbyRichter

    Maybe it’s his silent protest on 50′s stance on child support? He did play step daddy for a few years.

  • Speechless

    LOL

  • Speechless

    Murvy?

  • TeaCakes

    I’m the last person to defend him but his gut looks a bit much here. Padded maybe? Didn’t someone say he was supposed to play a heavy-set character? If it’s not padding, he’s hitting up those squished Krispy Kremes in a bad way!

  • AbbyRichter

    Hahaha!
    That is amazing and it looks like I’ll be using it a lot while he’s shooting Den. He’s still hot, so does that make him “murvacious”?

  • Pamela

    LOL He looks like the type that would steal someone’s tacos

  • AbbyRichter

    You can tell by his hands and face that he’s eating his way into a new weight category. I say enjoy it Gerry! You’ve hit the gym hard enough this past decade.
    Get that cake girl ;)

  • AJ

    Yes, he said in is HB interview that he had to get big for this movie and he said something like not in a cut way but in a beefy way. I feel bad for him cause the hard part will be trying to take it off after.

    this guy keeps getting overpaid to make shitty movies.

  • Pamela

    Sassypoo!
    The real moon river. Only you.

  • Speechless

    Murvalicious

    So adorable and sweet! Thanks Lace!

  • Ash

    Plump.

  • Sonia

    Excellent to have a work-related thread again! Loving the publicity that this film is getting. Also great that I don’t have to look at that blow-up doll photo anymore…

  • cleo

    is that his real belly?

  • Speechless

    I was wondering that myself. Or does he have layers on to make him look chubbier.

  • Speechless

    I remember Russell Crowe saying he lived on bourbon and hamburgers while trying to gain 50lbs for one of his movies.

  • cleo

    He looks weird.

  • AJ

    Thanks Nicole, I like the 2nd last pic where he’s laughing. I wonder if he’s practising a scene there.

  • AJ

    She has her hand on his stomach. He’s probably sucking it in. And why can’t GB come film a movie at my house? LOL!

  • AJ

    It’s for the role but yeah, not the best look for him.

  • cleo

    I think that DOt will flop

  • AJ

    I don’t know, it’s a classic plot and I think it will appeal to men. Having 50 cent doesn’t hurt either so I’m hoping it will do well.

  • Maggie P.U.

    What if he isn’t? Also, when you stand up straight don’t you also pull in your gut? I do. For one that makes better posture and second, if you research hold in your gut can also work as good as situps…. When you do that and do crunches and or situps it makes them work better because you have already started working your stomach muscles.

  • Pamela

    Why do you have to be so harsh?

  • AbbyRichter

    Lol! You’re so funny AJ.
    She’s super cute and he’s super old (next to her).

    I don’t know how I feel about the weight gain. I like him a lot leaner, but this weight looks like it’s right for him? Does that make sense? Lol. Like his body can handle the extra pounds without looking really bad. Hiddleston at this weight would look awful and I think they’re the same height.

    You might be thinking of Crowe in Body of Lies

  • Nicole
  • AJ

    Ha! Ha! Good one GG!

  • AJ

    Thanks! She is super cute! Imo, this look doesn’t do him any favours. It makes him look super old and marvilicious. LOL! Yes, he can carry the extra pounds and he doesn’t look terrible but I also prefer him leaner and while I liked his full beard when he was in Australia filming GOE, I prefer the lighter trimmed beard on him. I think it makes him look younger. My favourite look was how he looked during his OHF era. :):)

  • LuvsDaBoy

    FYI, those of you commenting about his “belly”. The enlarged area you see in his upper abdomen is caused by his mesentery. It functions like the radiator of your car or a/c. It gets clogged, things go bad in a cascade. In this case, I think stress is a major factor, but toxins in his system will back up and compound. Dangerously. His liver and kidneys will start complaining, and probably already are. His back will hurt, and more. Headaches. Hopefully someone will guide him to some dietary charcoal, probiotics, Vit. C mega-dose with Calcium and E., and have him cut way back on animal protein. This is not from too much food, only the wrong food for his body, and a badly clogged mesentery. I wish him well.

    So like a double helping of your chocolate caramel, triple dipped sprinkled whipped cream coated Strawberry tiramisu cake? Great, now i need an appointment for hydrocolon therapy after TYPING that mess.

    I personally prefer men with some meat on them so I have no problem with his weight here. I don’t like the hairstyle though, but the colour etc is fine. JMO, of course. :)
