Twitter Questions: Gerard Butler

Check out EMPIRE Online’s Twitter questions for Gerard Butler. The British mag asked fans to submit questions for him via Twitter, and here are some interesting bits about the planned Escaped From New York remake, eating deep-fried Mars Bars and if he still kept the 300 outfit.

Funny how he mentioned he almost did The Losers, as I was just reading about it on CinemaBlend. I’m not familiar with that project, but apparently it’s yet another comic-book adaptation (what else is new in Hollywood) about a Special Forces team serving in WWII, starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Zoe Saldana. Each member of the unit lost soldiers under their command, hence they dub themselves The Losers.

Back to Butler, I sure wish he won’t ever play Snake Plisken (I don’t care enough to check for the correct spelling) and opt to work on getting Burns off the ground! Glad to hear he’s still interested to bring the Scottish poet biopic project to life one day. I was dismayed when I read this report by Deadline Scotland that the project’s been postponed indefinitely so there’s “… no chance of Gerard Butler now becoming involved.”

Butler quipped that every Halloween, he’s always surrounded by his larger-than-life movie characters: Phantom, Leonidas, Dracula, etc. Hmmm, any ideas what the guy himself should be dressed as? How about that diaper thingy he wore in Attila? Or better yet, that shamrock boxer with suspenders from P.S. I love you? He just might upstage King Leonidas with that one.

Btw, if you’ve got a couple of minutes to spare, EMPIRE also got this amusing graph of GB’s manliness from a few months ago.
