Butler star of extended Raven?
Gerard Butler could be set to star in sci-fi action flick The Raven.
The film is going into production after being picked up as a 2010 short of the same name, reported The Wrap.
In the short, a man with powers is seen being chased around Los Angeles by robotic police drones, co-ordinated by a giant police ship in the sky above.
300 actor Gerard is now in talks to star in the film, which had originally attracted Liam Hemsworth.
Universal have bought the rights to The Raven and Ricardo de Montreuil, who directed the short, will also direct the feature length film.
Gerard recently starred in Olympus Has Fallen.
