Gerard Butler loads “Machine Gun”

By Hollywood News Staff

Hollywoodnews.com: Lionsgate is prepping the Gerard Butler action film “Machine Gun Preacher,” which will begin lensing this summer. Film will be directed by Marc “Quantum of Solace” Foster.

Film follows the real-life 1998 story of Sam Childers, a drug-dealing biker who fends off African forces who kidnap children.
Michelle Monaghan will star as Chiders’ wife and Michael Shannon will play Childers’ friend.

First Showing has been tracking the story. Childers constructed an orphanage and fought off armed militia whose objective it was to kidnap children.

“Machine Gun” is baed on Childers’ autobiography “Another Man’s War: The True Story of One Man’s Battle to Save Children in the Sudan.”
