No, instead he’ll be starring in the new thriller by former FBI Agent Paul Lindsay (who goes by the pen name Noah Boyd). The story will see Butler star as a rogue former agent moonlighting as a construction worker who gets drafted in by some ex-collegaues to stop an organisation demanding ransom payments. He’ll team up with the female Deputy Head Of The FBI (currently uncast – suggestions welcome. Stop typing, it won’t be Katherine Heigl).
Enigma screenwriter Hanna Weg will be writing the adaptation. No director or schedule as yet.
