14 April 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Alas, Devlin and Emmerich haven.t produced a film together since 2000.s The Patriot, and Devlin hasn.t written anything (apart from an episode of Leverage) since 1998.s "mutter the title under your breath, lest you be publicly scorned" blockbuster Godzilla. It looks like that drought is about to end pretty soon, as Heat Vision has reported that Mr. Devlin is not only writing but also directing what looks like a massive throwback to those Independence Days and Stargate nights. And he.s got Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen) helping out in the lead! Geostorm tells the story of Mr. Butler.s character, who.s described as: ".a stubborn but charming satellite designer who, when the world.s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, has to work together with »

Gerard Butler Faces Geostorm

He saved the White House last year in Olympus Has Fallen, but it appears Gerard Butler has bigger plans. He’s attached to Dean Devlin’s latest big screen prospect, Geostorm.From the sounds of it, the movie finds Devlin firmly back in the disaster/action territory he used to stalk alongside Roland Emmerich before he turned his attention to TV. Developed by Skydance Productions and now picked up by Warner Bros., Geostorm would see Butler as a charming and stubborn satellite designer who is called in to help when the world’s climate-controlling satellites start to act up.As a man-made storm of destructive proportions looms, he’ll have to work alongside his estranged brother (because, by law, there must always be family tension or an ex-wife/husband to add spice to these sorts of movies) to save the world. Part of that will mean going into space and »

Gerard Butler Will Get Caught Up In Geostorm

12 April 2014 4:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

‘Go big or go home’ – that seems to be the approach Dean Devlin is taking to his feature film directorial debut, as he takes every dramatic buzz-worthy concept, hot-button topic, and Gerard Butler, and hurls them all into the midst of Geostorm.

Having previously co-written and produced huge productions such as Independence Day and Godzilla, Devlin is now ready to take the helm himself – with Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen) in the lead role. The actor will star as a satellite designer, in a presumably near-future version of the world, where the planet’s climate is controlled by these hi-tech machines patrolling the atmosphere. When one begins to malfunction, Butler and his estranged brother must race against the clock to fix it, before the earth is decimated by a man-made mega-storm. Oh, and there’s a presidential assassination plot to contend with, too.

Although it sounds very much like the big, »
