Gerry will play “James” one of a trio of lighthouse keepers pitted together on a remote island off the Scottish coast It is scheduled to start filming in the UK early 2017.
Cross Creek Pictures is financing, and G-Base is a producer.
“I feel incredibly fortunate to have Gerard Butler, Peter Mullan and Joe Alwyn leading the cast of Keepers – great actors who are deeply committed to this project, and who will go the distance,” said Nyholm. “These men are the strong and unique characters at the heart of this story, which is a journey from innocence to animalistic survival. Keepers was great to read, will be an adventure to make, and terrifying to watch!”
It is being shopped at the AFM.
