Check This Out: Gerard Butler's New Poster for 'Machine Gun Preacher'
Hope is the great weapon of all. Relativity Media has finally unveiled an official poster on IMDb for Marc Forster's Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler as the real-life Sam Childers, a former biker tough guy who finds religion and travels to Sudan where he becomes a local hero, building an orphanage and defending orphaned kids from being killed. We've been hearing about this film for a while, and just saw a first look at Butler a few weeks ago, so maybe we'll get a trailer soon, too. He's got quite a badass stance on this, defending his domain behind him. It looks pretty good, I'm interested. Check out the full poster below!
Machine Gun Preacher is directed by Marc Forster (Stranger Than Fiction, The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace), who has already moved on to begin shooting World War Z, from a screenplay by Jason Keller. "There is more complexity in a modern-day character who's a drug addict and a biker turned businessman, missionary and soldier. You don't get roles like this very often," Butler said of playing Childers. I hope this role brings him back around to giving good performances in films that aren't cheesy romantic comedies. Relativity Media has MGP set to open limited release starting September 23rd during the film fest season.
