2016 seems to be the year for the Scottish actor Gerard Butler. His upcoming movie ''Hunter Killer'' will be released sometime in 2017. Will he tie the knot with his girlfriend Morgan Brown now?

As per IMDb, the plot of this movie revolves around ''an untested American submarine captain, who teams up with U.S. Navy Seals to rescue the Russian president, who has been kidnapped by a rogue general.''

Donovan Marsh will be the director of this movie and Peter Craig is writing the screenplay of this action thriller movie. Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Billy Bob Thornton and Common are the cast which have been finalised till now. D. Scott Lumpkin and Jamie Marshall will be executive producers of this film. Pam Dixon is busy with the casting of the rest of the film. Andy Armstrong will be the stunt co-ordinator of this movie and the fans can expect some power packed drama along with a great storyline.

This movie is loosely based on the novel written by Don Keith entitled ''Firing Point.'' Deadline reported in Mar. 2016 about the new director Marsh who will take over from the original director Martin Campbell.

Movieweb had reported about the ''Casino Royale'' famed director Campbell holding the reins of the movie as a director way back in Sep. 2014, however, things changed later.

Relativity Media will distribute the film worldwide. As per the last reports on Bloomberg, this movie will be very crucial for Relativity Media as they have been standing at the brink of bankruptcy and this movie might be able to give a new lease of life to the company.

First Butler's film ''Gods of Egypt'' which was released on Feb. 26, 2016 had already collected $138.8 million in the box-office as per the latest report on box office mojo. However, the expectations were much higher from this big-budget ensemble cast movie.

The other movie ''London Has Fallen'' where he starred along with veteran actor Morgan Freeman which opened in cinemas on Mar. 4, 2016 has already received many critical acclaims. As per the last report on box office mojo, this movie has scooped up a whopping $182.5 million against the budget of $60 million giving the producers three times bigger smiles. Variety talked about the sequel of ''Olympus Has Fallen" during its incubation stage.

''The Headhunter's Calling'' which will see Gerard starring in this family drama, is in the production stage now and will be released sometime in 2016.

Another movie which the movie-goers are waiting for is ''Geostorm'' which will be released on Jan. 13, 2017. Katheryn Winnick is playing the role of Olivia and Gerard Butler the role of Jake.

So will this 46 year old versatile TV and film actor now think about settling down with long-term girlfriend Morgan Brown? Or are the rumors of the couple splitting true? Find out more here in the upcoming articles of Kpopstarz.
