Gerard Butler, sometimes known as “that’s not Clive Owen,” has exited the remake of surfing action film Point Break. Butler cited a “confluence of factors,” ranging from creative difference to scheduling conflicts.

What a confluence, indeed.

There isn’t a lot more to dive into here, though it’s a rare instance of Gerard Butler saying no to a role, which in and of itself is pretty newsworthy. For what it’s worth, the scheduling conflict that Butler was experiencing was for the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, which is pretty funny. Any time your reason for not doing something is that it conflicts with an Olympus Has Fallen sequel, you really have to take a look at the artistic merits of that original thing.

While Butler’s Bodhi will need to be recast, poor Luke Bracey will still be holding onto the role of Johnny Utah. Now he just needs a zen-like father figure to step in.

I’m thinking maybe Eugene Levy?

Due to the recent law passed by Congress that every film both loved and reviled must be remade, Alcon Entertainment is moving forward with plans to remake Point Break with plans to have Gerard Butler try his best at filling Patrick Swayze’s role. Though you might object to this entire remake, please remain aware that this is now legislature and, unless you want to move to the sun-dappled vineyards of Europe like some anti-American pussy, you’ll accept Gerard Butler as Bodhi and Garrett Hedlund as Johnny Utah because you just know.

You’ll also be accepting of the eventual news that one of the guys from Linkin Park will play the role originated by Anthony Kiedis.

Realizing that other places can also fall, Olympus Has Fallen producer Avi Lerner is getting the gang back together for a sequel set in England. The entire cast — lead by Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Ylvis enthusiast Morgan Freeman — are reprising their roles for London Has Fallen, the terrorism thriller set across the pond. The story follows efforts to stop a terrorist attack coordinated to strike the city on the same day as the British Prime Minister’s funeral. Jesus, imagine the traffic. (Screendaily)

Word in Tinseltown is that Fox has spun the Movie-matic movie-generating wheel and it came up “remake,” “Romancing the Stone,” and “Heigl/Butler.” So, our fate awaits.

For those who don’t remember or are too young and busy to visit ephemeral mid-80′s action romances, Romancing the Stone, which followed a romance novelist (Katleen Turner in the original) and a mercenary (Michael Douglas in the original) as they scramble around the jungle in familia Indiana Jones fashion until they fall in love.

The only thing to like about this possible remake is that the original featured Danny DeVito, who could very easily step right back into the same role, considering he doesn’t appear to have aged a day since 1984.

Beyond that, I don’t think we’ll get a lot of support for an Ugly Truth reunion on this website, so let’s put a provisional approval on this in the hopes that Katherine Heigl (improbably) gets topless, or Gerard Butler chops her head off in 300 fashion.

Wow. Gerard Butler is helping hungry kids in a way that makes Sally Struthers look super-lazy. He stars in Machine Gun Preacher as Sam Childers, a former drug dealer who decides to up his good karma by traveling to the Sudan and helping the impoverished by kicking hunger down a bottomless pit. While building an orphanage, he also forms a militia to fight against the warlords that are drafting the children to become soldiers.

It’s your move, Sean Penn.

Ralph Fiennes has done such a good job acting without a nose that he’s been allowed to direct his very own movie. Coriolanus, based off the play by William Shakespeare (or Anonymous or whoever), tells the story of a general who teams up with his sworn enemy after being betrayed by his people. Fiennes updates the tale here to set the events against the backdrop of modern warfare. However, he holds onto the original Shakespearean (or Anonymousean or whoeverean) dialogue. The results look pretty good and way more hardcore than when Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes did it.

Gerard Butler has really explored the studio space with his choice of roles recently. He seemingly moved fast as a bullet from the realm of solid action/crime fair to the cinematic purgatory that is romantic comedies. Well, his upcoming project, The Bricklayer gives us reason to believe that the pendulum is swinging back to action.

In the film, which is based on a book by Noah Boyd and adapted by Hanna Weg, Jerry Butler will play a retired cop who has found a quiet existence as a bricklayer when he gets pulled back into the realm of good guys and bad guys after some mobsters pull off a series of kidnappings. He will be teamed up with a yet uncast female lead, so it remains to be seen if this project will serve as a film version of a derivative SVU episode or something a little more substantive. At the very least, he’s back in action.

It looks like director Gabriel Muccino (Seven Pounds, Pursuit of Happyness) is branching out with a project that won’t make everyone want to cry. It’s crazy enough to work.

Despite the unfortunately punny title, Playing the Field has some things going for it, not least of which is the cast, which added the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Judy Greer to existing players Gerard Butler, Dennis Quaid, Jessica Biel, and Uma Thurman. Damn! There’s some good-lookin’ folk in this soccer dramedy.

The movie centers on Butler, who plays a troubled former soccer player who attempts to redeem himself by coaching his son’s soccer team, which seems to be ground zero for hot soccer moms, including Biel, Thurman, and Greer. Needless to say, his dalliances get create some tenions on his path to redemption. Quaid plays another handsome soccer coach, meaning that these kids’ games probably turn into hot orgies of the wealthy by halftime.

That said, the script is currently undergoing revisions by Stuart Bloomberg, who has shown a deft hand with Keeping the Faith and The Kids Are All Right. So it might not just be about good-looking older people banging. But if it is, that’s okay too. (LA Times)

The UK television show from the 70s “The Professionals” never made it Stateside, perhaps Americans were too busy watching”The A-Team” to watch a show about boy wizards. Just kidding, it’s actually about secret agents, and of course it’s getting turned into a movie. Here’s a plot synopsis:

“This big-screen version will be an origin story, showing how ex-Spec Ops mercenary Bodie and counter-terrorism detective Doyle unite to work for covert UK security unit CI5.”

The studio, Lionsgate UK, is reportedly courting Tom Hardy, Gerard Butler and Jason Statham to play the secret agents, while Liam Neeson and Gary Oldman are being sought to play their boss. It’s too bad they’re not all going to be in the movie – maybe if they’re all interested they’ll have to fight each other for roles. Judging by the list of actors being talked to, this looks to be an action movie in the vein of the recent “older action” movies The Expendables and RED. So tell your parents to be on the lookout for The Professionals. (via Deadline)

Gerard Butler’s abdominal muscles are about to give Old Man Dennis Quaid a reality check. The objects of housewife fantasies past and present will star opposite one another in Gabriele Muccino‘s Playing The Field.

In the film, known cat-milker Quaid (see photo) and Butler will play rival soccer coaches in the suburbs. There’s no word whether they will compete off the field for the affections of Uma Thurman or Jessica Biel, but it’s reported that Thurman’s character gets tingly in the pants for Gerard Butler.

Muccino is known for having directed Seven Pounds and The Pursuit Of Happyness. And while his spelling sucks, he does have at least one okay film under his belt. And Dennis Quaid likes those odds! (Blackfilm)

Though I get bored watching soccer, it’d be hard for me to get bored staring at Jessica Biel and Uma Thurman. So I’m gonna call the new soccer movie Playing The Field a tie.

The film stars Gerard Butler as a pee-wee soccer coach lothario, acting as the coach to finally spend quality time with his son, but really to spend quality time with hot soccer moms. Of course, I don’t know that I’d want to date a woman who’s screaming, “put my son on the field you f*cking piece of shit! He’s way better than that waste of space Bergman. He’s picking his nose on the field, for god sake. Are you blind?” But I digress.

Thurman will play the sexy Hollywood version of a soccer mom (I guess we have Sarah Palin, but blood libels are also a turn-off), while Biel stars as Butler’s ex-wife. Playing The Field is helmed by Italian director Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness) and written by Robbie Fox (So I Married an Axe Murderer). The whistle will blow on filming very soon.

Curtis Hanson, who kind of looks like an old surfer, is going to be directing Gerard Butler, who kind of doesn’t, in a movie about surfing. Mavericks will follow the brief life of surfing sensation Jay Moriarty, who died at the age of 22 in a diving accident. Butler will play his surfing mentor, “Frosty” Hesson, who bonds with Moriarty until his death. The title comes from the famous (and infamous) surfing region in central California known for sick breaks and gnarly, uh, tubes.

Butler will also serve as executive producer of the film, which begins filming in October. No word on who is being considered for the role of Moriarty, but there are no shortage of young actors who fit the bill. As for the choice of Butler for Hesson, I view it to be a small tragedy that at no point was Keanu Reeves discussed in the mentor role. Full circle and whatnot. (Deadline)
