Gerard Butler is in talks to star in the Gold Circle/Universal flick “The Raven”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, based on a short film of the same name, has been in development for a while – at one time with Liam Hemsworth attached to star.
Directed by Ricardo de Montreuil, who will reprise his role on the film, the short focused on a young man with powers being chased around downtown Los Angeles by robotic police drones, while a giant police ship coordinates the effort from the skies above.
Michael Gilio wrote the script (Justin Marks did an earlier draft) for “The Raven”, which will likely go before the cameras later this year.
Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson, who brought the project to the attention of the studio, are producers alongside Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks.
