Breck Eisner Teams With Gerald Butler For A ‘Manhunt’

300 star Gerard Butler (pictured inside) is in advanced negotiations to star in the action thriller Manhunt for Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher’s Double Feature Films, reports Deadline.

Genre director Breck Eisner – best known for The Crazies – is aboard to helm the film, which is set to begin production at year’s end.

The plot involves a team of FBI agents sent to the North Carolina wilderness to chase the FBI’s most wanted man, domestic terrorist and survivalist James Tollan, who has eluded arrest with the support of the local population while attacking the federal government. They enroll the help of a reluctant bear hunter to capture the killer. But once the team enters the woods, the hunters become the hunted as Tollan will stop at nothing to survive and defend his territory.

Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby wrote the script.

    Eisner did a great job with THE CRAZIES so i’m happy with this and Butler is not only uber-hot, he’s a really good actor. this is shaping up to be a good movie!

    Sounds interesting. I like Butler, he’s solid. Too bad it’s not an adaptation of the game Manhunt. :/
