300 was a huge hit and made Gerard Butler everyone’s favourite Spartan. Since then he has done a drama/thriller with Pierce Brosnan, a romantic/drama/comedy thing with Hilary Swank, plus a couple of other films. I am most looking forward to Game which looks rather interesting.
Anyway, CHUD are saying that their source told them that Gerard Butler may be up for the role of Victor Creed aka Sabretooth in upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This would be rather cool if it were true, however I wont believe any of it until anything is confirmed. We reported last month about how Tyler Mane would not be returning as the film makers wanted to go in a different direction with the character. The Sabretooth we got in X-Men was nothing special, so improving the character is a good thing. I just wonder where they are heading. Are they going for the lion type character who roars a lot or a villain in human form who is a bit hairy?
CHUD are also saying that apparently director Gavin Hood wants Natalie Portman in the film, as a character named Kayla. If this is Wolverines love interest then I don’t think it will work. I just don’t see Portman and Jackman as a couple. Also, Portman is slowly getting away from the Star Wars fanboys, why would she want to be brought back into the craziness that is the X-Men fanboys?
