Actor Gerard Butler has now bagged his upcoming film where he will be seen starring in the action thriller, Remote Control. According to a report in Variety,
Butler will portray a former war correspondent turned corporate security consultant, whose life is overturned when he receives a mysterious phone call from an unknown source. He soon uncovers the threads of a global conspiracy, finding himself drawn into a fight for his life, pursued by a powerful shadow organization and framed as a notorious international assassin. With his own identity erased, he turns to his former lover, who is also implicated in the conspiracy.
STXfilms has secured worldwide sales rights for the film and will introduce the film to buyers at the European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival, which opens Wednesday.
The deal was announced Tuesday by Hyde Park Entertainment Group chairman and CEO Ashok Amritraj and STXfilms’ Motion Picture Group chairman Adam Fogelson.
“As a producer and a star, Gerard Butler continues to be an extraordinary partner,” said Fogelson. “We are excited to be re-teaming with him and G-Base on ‘Remote Control.’ This is the kind of high-stakes action story that he does best. The complete package of Gerard, Michael and Barbara at EON, and Ashok at Hyde Park makes this a hard-to-beat proposition for STX.”
