Gerard Butler has signed on to be a part of The Headhunters Calling alongside first time director, Mark Williams. The Scottish actor has had a lot of his success in the action genre with films like 300 and Olympus has Fallen, but this film will be more of a drama with a fair amount of action in it.

Butler will play a deadly headhunter named Dane Jensen. Jensen wants to take over the company he works for when his son has a life threatening illness. The film is in pre-production right now but will start its principal photography in late October.

Alongside Butler starring and Williams directing, The Headhunter’s Calling is written by Bill Dubuque. Butler and Williams will also help Alan Siegel produce the much anticipated film.
