Gerard Butler Interview – Law Abiding Citizen

Gerard Butler (300, Dear Frankie, Phantom of the Opera) and his producing partner Alan Siegel chose Law Abiding Citizen to be the first film produced under their Evil Twin banner – and it’s a real doozy. In the film, Butler plays a husband and father who seeks justice after his family is brutally murdered. When the legal system fails him, Butler’s character takes it upon himself to punish those responsible.


On the red carpet at the film’s LA premiere, Butler talked about why he chose to take on this particular character and why he and Siegel wanted to make Law Abiding Citizen their first Evil Twin movie. Oh, and for those into such things, Siegel told everyone who asked at the premiere (which I didn’t because frankly I don’t care) that Butler and his The Bounty co-star Jennifer Aniston are just good friends:

Chris Pine May Star in The Art of Making Money

Variety‘s reporting Chris Pine (hot off his starring role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek) and director D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye, Disturbia) are in negotiations to join The Art of Making Money. Pine, who’s been very picky about which projects he takes on since scoring success as the new Kirk, is currently filming Unstoppable, the action drama that hit a few speedbumps before heading into production. Caruso’s linked to a few projects (Y: The Last Man, The Defenders, Dead Space), none of which are real close to getting underway.


According to Variety, Paramount’s looking to get The Art of Making Money into production as soon as early next year.

Frank Baldwin’s screenplay is based on the book The Art of Making Money: The Story of a Master Counterfeiter by Jason Kersten. Kersten’s book tells the true story of Art Williams, a Chicago man with a troubled childhood who became one of the most successful counterfeiters in modern history. If the deal goes through, Pine will play Williams.

Forest Whitaker Discusses Where the Wild Things Are

Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) lends his voice to the character of Ira, a big galoot who likes to go around putting holes in trees, in Where the Wild Things Are. Based on the classic children’s book by Maurice Sendak and co-written and directed by Spike Jonze, Where the Wild Things Are is the story of Max, a young boy who escapes from trouble at home by sailing away to a land filled with humongous wondrous creatures.
