The odds are stacked against Scottish actor Gerard Butler when he stars in Hunter Killer. When it comes to rescuing Presidents and prime ministers Butlers rescue missions are always explosive. This submarine based thriller he’s up against time to save the Russian president against a possible coup. Saving him may also prevent World War 3 breaking out too!
The film is based on the acclaimed novel ‘Firing Point‘ written by retired naval officer George Wallace and author Don Keith. The film has been in the pipeline to be made for nearly 7 years. Sam Worthington and Antoine Fuqua were been lined up to star and direct. Now Avenged director Donovan Marsh has stepped in to make the high stakes thriller.
Last week Lionsgate Films released the film’s Official UK Trailer (link below), today they have released the accompanying poster…
