Gerard Butler to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Geostorm’

Gerard Butler has come on board to star in sci-fi adventure “Geostorm” for Warner Bros.

The project is the feature directorial debut of Dean Devlin, who teamed with Roland Emmerich to produce 1996’s “Independence Day.”

Devlin’s Electric Entertainment is producing “Geostorm” with Skydance Productions. Producers are Devlin, Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and Electric Entertainment’s Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan.

Warner Bros. picked up the project after it went into turnaround at Paramount. Jon Berg is overseeing.

Devlin also wrote “Geostorm,” which centers on a satellite designer who tries to prevent disaster when the world’s climate-control satellites fail to function.

Butler will be starring in the upcoming “Gods of Egypt” and the “Point Break” remake. He is repped by CAA and Alan Siegel Entertainment.

The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
