Actor and film producer Gerard Butler, who is known for his roles in films like Angel Has Fallen, Olympus Has Fallen, 300, London Has Fallen, recently revealed that he enjoyed serving as a producer on the disaster action film Greenland. Butler served as a producer for the film, Greenland when he had the chance to play a more hands-on role in the project. The actor also reveals details on how he loves to have control in shaping the film

During an interview with Total Film magazine, Gerard Butler revealed that he is a control freak. He said that when an actor is coming up, they beg for roles, and they’re lucky to get one, and then suddenly find themselves in a position where the movies are being made because they’re involved. He added that if that’s the case he wants to produce it, have some control and also wants to help shape this film. He also revealed that not the studio movies, like Gods of Egypt or Geostorm but all the other ones, in the independent world.

Chris Sparling has written a script for Greenland, produced by Thunder Road Films. Talking about his role in Greenland, Gerard said that he got a chance to develop, be involved with the script, choose the director and much. He called it more responsibility and loved the fact that he was involved in the process. Greenland, coming from STX Films, was one of a handful of films released in the US theaters after the coronavirus-forced shutdown ended.
