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?!?
