How Rookie ‘Den Of Thieves’ Director Shocked Gerard Butler

dot_unit_00421c_rgbGerard Butler’s new movie, the crime drama Den of Thieves, is about a team of bank robbers who try to crack a nearly impenetrable target — the Federal Reserve Bank — and the lawmen who try to stop them. It’s also the directorial debut of screenwriter Christian Gudegast. Butler starred in the last movie Gudegast wrote (2016’s London Has Fallen), but when it came to watching Gudegast in the director’s chair for the first time, he was very pleasantly surprised by what he saw.


Den of Thieves, which also stars rapper 50 Cent and O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube’s son), opens in theaters this Friday.

Gerard Butler And 50 Cent Face Off In ‘Den of Thieves’ Trailer

denofthieves8

Although it will be hard to top director Michael Mann’s heist thriller Heat, that doesn’t mean the genre shouldn’t rest its head on just one movie. Gerard Butler and 50 Cent are on opposite sides of the law in Den of Thieves, an action thriller about a group of bank robbers (including 50 Cent and O’Shea Jackson Jr.) who are planning to take down the Federal Reserve! Obviously these criminals are looking for a big score to set them for life, and attempting to stop them in their tracks is an elite unite of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (led by Butler).

The picture is the directing debut of Christian Gudegast, and like Heat this film mainly takes place in Downtown Los Angeles. Shootouts, car chases, and explosions should be part of this cinematic cocktail, and kudos to the trailer for effectively employing Kendrick Lamar’s “m.A.A.d City” to whet our appetites. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!

Den of Thieves opens nationwide January 19, 2018.
