Hunter Killer will re­vive sub­ma­rine thrillers: But­ler

Khaleej Times - City Times - - SKY FULL OF STARS -

GER­ARD BUT­LER SAYS sub­ma­rine thriller Hunter Killer tells a clas­sic story, but it is very rel­e­vant.

“When I first read this script a few years ago, I loved it im­me­di­ately. It’s a clas­sic story with a heck of a lot of great ac­tion, a heck of an in­tri­cate plot and a whole cast of fan­tas­tic char­ac­ters who are he­roes from dif­fer­ent walks of life,” But­ler said.

“It felt like an ex­cit­ing way to re­vive the sub­ma­rine thriller for these times. And right now, this story couldn’t feel more rel­e­vant,” he added.

The film is adapted from Don Keith and Ge­orge Wal­lace’s 2012 novel Fir­ing Point. But­ler plays a sub­ma­rine cap­tain on a mis­sion to res­cue the Rus­sian pres­i­dent and avoid World War 3 by fir­ing tor­pe­does at ev­ery­thing in sight.

Di­rected by Dono­van Marsh, it also stars Gary Old­man and Linda Cardellini.
