Whilst work continues developing a third film in the Olympus Has Fallen series, Gerard Butler is set to busy himself in a new action movie, Snow Ponies.
Written by Pat Healy, and the script for it made the 2006 Blacklist of the best unproduced screenplays. The movie is now set to press ahead, with Darrin Prescott directing. It’ll be his directorial debut, following lots of second unit work on the likes of Captain America: Civil War, John Wick and Drive.
Snow Ponies tells the story of seven hardened men, as they travel across an unpleasant terrain to deliver a package. No idea what the package is, and seemingly, neither do they. Their journey is punctuated by encounters with bandits and assorted obstacles. And they must choose between loyalty to each other, and sheer survival.
Snow Ponies is likely to film later this year, and the movie was announced at the Berlin Film Market, where it’s hunting for distribution partners. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more about it..
