He’s never backed down from a challenge, and Gerard Butler is said to be in talks to star in an action thriller titled “Manhunt.”
The “P.S. I Love You” hunk would play the lead in the flick, and if he signs on he’ll begin filming near the end of this year.
Butler is no stranger to action flicks, having kicked some serious butt in “300,” “Machine Gun Preacher,” and “Gamer.”
Per the “Manhunt” synopsis, “A team of FBI agents are sent to the North Carolina wilderness to chase the FBI’s most wanted man, domestic terrorist and survivalist James Tollan, who has eluded arrest with the support of the local population while attacking the federal government. They enroll the help of a reluctant bear hunter to capture the killer. But once the team enters the woods, the hunters become the hunted as Tollan will stop at nothing to survive and defend his territory.”
