Gerard Butler is in negotiations to star in the action-thriller Manhunt for Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher’s Double A Pictures, reports Deadline. Breck Eisner will direct the film starting at the end of the year.
According to the site, “the plot involves a team of FBI agents sent to the North Carolina wilderness to chase the FBIs 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.”
The script was written by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby.
