The film, which is being directed by Ricardo de Montreuil, takes place in a near futuristic Los Angeles, centers on Chris Black, aka: the Raven, a man who discovers he has “superpowers”, and that those powers may be the only thing that can take down the current ruling dictatorship.
Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson will produce.
Butler last starred in the action film “Olympus Has Fallen”, a pic that will hopefully put him back on track after a string of flops including “Gamer”, “The Ugly Truth” and “Playing For Keeps”. He is currently lending his voice to “How to Train Your Dragon 2”.
He is repped by CAA.
