Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris and Andy Garcia are in negotiations to join Gerard Butler in Dean Devlin’s sci-fi adventure “Geostorm” for Warner Bros. Pictures and Skydance.
Butler plays a charming, yet stubborn satellite designer who, when the world’s climate-controlling satellites malfunction has to work together with his estranged brother (Sturgess) to save the world from a giant man-made storm.
As the designer heads into space, the brother discovers a plot to assassinate the president (Andy Garcia). Cornish will play Stugess’ Secret Service agent girlfriend. Harris will play the Secretary of State.
Devlin, Kieran Mulroney and Michelle Mulroney penned the script and filming aims to begin in October in New Orleans.
