Gerard Butler Is An Ugly Man

Gerard Butler (“300”) has signed to star in the battle of the sexes comedy “The Ugly Truth” for Sony Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment reports Variety.

The story centers on a romantically challenged morning show producer (Katherine Heigl) who is reluctantly embroiled by her chauvinistic correspondent Mike Alexander (Butler) in a series of outrageous tests to prove his theories on relationships and help her find love.

The project reunites the “Legally Blonde” team of director Robert Luketic and scribes Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith. “Ugly Truth” is scheduled to begin shooting in April.
