Gerard Butler always seems to be signing up for movies, although only a few of them actually come to fruition. The latest is the action thriller Manhunt, which The Crazies helmer Breck Eisner is attached to direct.
The thriller is about 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. The feds enroll the help of a reluctant bear hunter to capture the killer. However, once the team enters the woods, the hunters become the hunted as Tollan will stop at nothing to survive and defend his territory.
The movie is based on a script by the Iron Man writing team of Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby. (Source: Deadline)
