The “300” and “Olympus Has Fallen” hero is set to star in Christian Gudegast’s “Den of Thieves” for Relativity
Christian Gudegast will direct from a script he co-wrote with Paul Scheuring.
Story follows a legendary crew of bank robbers who plan a heist in LA’s Federal Reserve under the nose of a rogue deputy.
It’s unclear when production will start, as Butler must wrap Alex Proyas‘ “Gods of Egypt” before he turns his attention to WB’s “Geostorm” and the “Olympus Has Fallen” sequel, both of which already have release dates.
Butler has been circling “Den of Thieves” for the better part of a year, though Relativity waited until Cannes to announce the project to help position it in the marketplace.
