Worthington, Butler Feel The “Thunder”

Three male leading actors so manly they can make other men pregnant just by looking at them – Gerard Butler, Sam Worthington and Matthew McConaughey – are all teaming for the 3D CG mo-cap action-thriller “Thunder Road” at Hyde Park, Freedom Films and Graphic Film Company reports Thompson on Hollywood.

Based on Davd Zucchino’s novel, the project is described as the untold story of the dangerous surprise assault and capture of Baghdad by American Forces at the onset of the Iraq War. The tone is a “harrowing picture of the soldiers on the front lines and the realities of modern warfare”.

“Black Hawk Down” scribes Robert Port and Ken Nolan are adapting the novel while “Con Air” helmer Simon West will direct. Freedom’s Brian Presley says the movie will be the “first ever conventional war film made to utilize this revolutionary facial and motion capture technology and state of the art CG and 3D.
