Although it sounds like a sequel to Hobo with a Shotgun, Machine Gun Preacher is actually an upcoming Gerard Butler movie where he plays a reformed criminal biker who travels to Sudan to help build an orphanage and, in the process, becomes a target of the local militia. It’s based on a true story and I definitely get a “Blood Diamond” vibe from it, although fortunately no one is attempting a crazy African accent. It also seems like this is Gerard Butler’s attempt at an Oscar nomination because the trailer doesn’t feature a whole lot of Machine Gunning and a lot more Preaching. The movie is directed by Marc Forster, who has directed Monster’s Ball, The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace and is currently directing World War Z. The movie is out in limited release on September 23 and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
