[ February 19th 2004 ]
Company has tapped Glaswegian actor Gerard Butler
for the title role in the multi-million pound
blockbuster Robert Burns which begins filming
this summer, displacing rumours the lead would
be snatched by Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny
Depp. Butler recently appeared alongside Hollywood
superstar Angelina Jolie in the Par pic Lara Croft
Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life.
director of Mob Film Company said: "This film
has been in the planning stages for several years
but as many a Hollywood director will ruefully
confirm no film is absolutely 100% certain to
be made until the cameras actually start to roll.
Although we are hopeful it will be this summer."
Burns is penned by Scottish writer Alan Sharp,
whose accolades include Rob Roy and Little Treasures.
