Gerard Butler Kicks Some Balls

Scottish hunk Gerard Butler (“300,” “The Bounty Hunter”) is in talks to star in the sports film “Slide” for Evil Twins says The L.A. Times.

Robbie Fox (“So I Married an Ax Murderer”) penned the screenplay about a father (Butler) with a troubled past who comes in to coach his son’s Little League baseball team.

The project, originally titled “Confessions of a Little League Coach”, is now ditching the baseball angle in favour of soccer. Gabriele Muccino (“The Pursuit of Happyness”) has been interested in directing.

Kevin Misher and Jonathan Mostow will produce, but no studio is yet locked.
