You can’t keep Gerard Butler down. Despite the triple run of duds that were “Gods of Egypt,” “Geostorm” and “Den of Thieves,” the actor is still ploughing away at the action thriller genre and now the trailer is out for his latest – “Hunter Killer”.
Peter Craig and Jamie Moss penned the script based on George Wallace and Don Keith’s novel “Firing Point”. The story revolves around an untested American submarine commander (Butler) sent into Russian waters who teams with U.S. Navy Seals to save the Russian President. Said president has been kidnapped by a rogue general who has launched a military coup.
Gary Oldman, Common, Toby Stephens, Michael Nyqvist, Caroline Goodall, Ryan McPartlin and Michael Trucco co-star in the film which comes at an awkward time considering the global public perception of U.S.-Russian relations. “Hunter Killer” opens in cinemas October 26th.
