This flick come up in conversation during the last Shadow And Act Livecast.
A few days ago, Relativity Media announced that it has acquired North American rights from Lionsgate to theatrically release the film, which stars Gerard Butler, and Souleymane Sy Savane whom most will remember from 2008's Goodbye Solo.
Titled Machine Gun Preacher, the film is based on the true story of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing biker who finds faith leading him on a path to East Africa. Shocked by the mayhem in Sudan, Childers becomes a crusader for hundreds of refugee children, and in the process, restores peace to their lives and eventually his own.
All hail the white man! How does he do it?
The film is set to hit screens in Los Angeles and New York on September 23rd, and will expand to other cities afterward.
Maybe Gerard Butler is vying for an Oscar with this role.
Anyway... the above image is your first official look of the two stars of the film. I'm sure you can figure out who's who. I'm sure a trailer will surface soon.
