Back in April Gerard Butler signed up to get his disaster movie on in Geostorm. Now the cast is growing, as THR reports that Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris and Andy Garcia are in talks to join the movie.
Butler is set to play a satellite engineer who realises the world’s climate-control satellites are malfunctioning. He has to team up with his estranged brother (Sturgess) to stop a man-made storm from destroying the Earth.
Butler head into space to fix the satellites (because satellites can cause storms, not just monitor them, right?), while his brother discovers a plot to assassinate the President of the United States (Andy Garcia), which presumably is linked to the storm. Cornish will be a Secret Service agent and Sturgess’ girlfriend, while Ed Harris will be the Secretary of State.
Independence Day producer Dean Devlin is set to direct Geostorm. He also wrote the original script, which is now being worked on by Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney. A March 25th, 2016 release date has already been set.
