Gerard Butler is becoming quite the action star these days which is great news as there really aren’t that many anymore; the fact he is a fellow Scot is even better. He is set to reunite with Greenland and Angel Has Fallen director Ric Roman Waugh on the new action thriller Kandahar.
According to Variety “Waugh will direct from a screenplay he wrote with former military intelligence officer Mitchell LaFortune, based on the latter’s experiences at the Defense Intelligence Agency in Afghanistan at the time of the Snowden leaks”.
Gerard Butler stars as Tom Harris, an undercover CIA operative working in the Middle East. An intelligence leak dangerously exposes his classified mission and reveals his covert identity. Stuck in the heart of hostile territory, Harris and his translator must fight their way out of the desert to an extraction point in Kandahar while eluding the elite special forces hunting them.
This sounds like it could be intense stuff so count me in.
