Stalked: Butler in kids fantasy and Bridges loses friends
Gerard Butler has signed for another film, this time a kids film, proving he's on one hell of a drive just now, and Jeff Bridges has signed up for How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.
Gerard Butler has just signed for The Untouchables: Capone Rising, and now he's set to balance that with a role in a chidlren's fantasy story. He's going to appear next to the superb Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin in Nim's Island.
The story, from Variety, reminds us of the plot we heard before. A little girl is on a tropical island with her scientist Father. While on a trip his boat runs into trouble and the girl is left to fend for herself. She uses her Dad's computer and starts emailing the author of a book she is reading, and the writer manages to help her cope. For some reason the group then unite and save the island from tour companies...in the meantime they are sure to fall in love too.
According to The Hollywood Reporter Jeff Bridges has signed up to How to Lose Friends & Alienate People along with Kirsten Dunst, Simon Pegg, Danny Huston and Gillian Anderson, who just keeps going from strength to strength these days and shows no need to return to X-Files. Meanwhile this film looks like it has a strong cast.
