Gerard Butler Rumored to Be Up for Role in Wolverine Movie

by at . Comments

Still glowing from his starring role in 300, Gerard Butler is the action star du jour.

With that in mind, sources tell CHUD that the actor is in talks to star in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reportedly, Karl Urban had been in talks to play Creed - the dude who would become Sabretooth - but that has fallen through.

Will this casting coup really take place? It's possible. Butler's schedule has opened up because the Escape from New York remake he had been penciled in for has come apart.

We'll let you know when we learn more. But who wouldn't love to see Hugh Jackman do battle with Gerard Butler?!?

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Quotes

William Stryker: My name is Major William Stryker. You boys tired of running? Tired of denying your true nature?
Victor Creed: Why do you care?
William Stryker: Oh I care. I care because I know how valuable you are. I'm putting together a special team, with special privileges. So tell me, how would you like to really serve your country?

William Stryker: You were sentenced to death for decapitating a Senior Officer. Your sentence was carried out by a firing squad at ten hundred hours. How'd that go?
Logan: It tickled.
