While Gerard Butler was originally signed and announced to play the role of Nick Rice, there are divergent stories about how Jamie Foxx took on that role and Butler was re-cast as Cylde Shelton. In one version, Foxx called the producers and asked if Butler would like to play Clyde Shelton instead, as he liked the role of Nick. When the producers approached Butler about playing Clyde, he thought about it for a second and reportedly said "Jamie as Nick... and me as Clyde? That would be awesome!" However, Butler also said in an interview that HE suggested the role switch between himself and Foxx via his role as a producer on the film. Butler also said that he initially regretted that this idea was implemented by the other producers, but added that the entire process worked out well for the project. See more »
Since this whole incident began with the home invasion of Clyde's home by two men, why would the producers and writer include a scene where Nick's 10 year old daughter answers the door by herself simply to accept a package? Even if her mother was home, she wouldn't have been able to prevent anything. See more »

So you'll be seeking the death penalty?
For Rupert Ames, we will be.
And for Darby?
He has pleaded guilty to murder, but he's also a cooperating witness. Rest assured, the DA's office has committed all of its resources to ensure justice will be served.
[Grabs nick's hand and shakes it]
I just want to say thank you for being in my corner. It's nice when the system works.
[Disgusted with him]
Get away from me.

I went into this movie just wanting to watch Gerard because I love him as an actor. When I got in there, I realized that this was not going to be just any movie. This movie was kick ass and I am so glad that I went to see it. I would pay 10 times to go watch this movie in theaters. He really took it over the edge, and the quote that my friends and I are saying since then is "It's going to be biblical" They really make each scene one for the books with creative ideas and thrilling scenes that keep you wondering what will be in store. It is one of the few movies that my heart was racing and my mind was wondering what would happen next. I love it and cannot wait to see it again.
