It's taken a while, but Gerard Butler is finally going to answer his calling as an action star. The genre-hopping tough guy found success with a couple of romantic comedies, but his Oscar bid for "Machine Gun Preacher" fell short, so he's redoubling his efforts to become an A-List head-smasher. Butler's attached to Naval thriller "Hunter Killer," war picture "Thunder Run" and a heist film, "Brilliant," and now he's going to follow in the footsteps of fellow tough guys Clint Eastwood, Michael Douglas and Wesley Snipes. You guessed it: he's going to steal the Declaration of Independence save the President Of The United States, in the jargon-y sounding "Olympus Has Fallen."

It’s hard to tell if a filmmaker is in 'Director Jail' or if he just doesn’t feel like working. After the critical and commercial misfire “Lucky You,” Curtis Hanson (“L.A. Confidential,” “Wonder Boys,” “8 Mile”) didn’t have much going on. Then 2011 came around, and he made the well-received HBO Wall Street docudrama “Too Big To Fail,” and began filming, only a few weeks ago, the Gerard Butler surfer movie, “Of Men and Mavericks.”
