I don't think this movie is going to get made - at least not with Butler in the lead role. With the script re-writes and Gerry committing to other projects, I just think he may find himself unavailable in the near future. The only way I can possibly see it happen is if Burns can be filmed quickly in between projects - and maybe it can be - and if they get the script together soon. Otherwise, I think he is going to be too old to pull it off. JMO.
