Gerard Butler and Lady Danville…?


I just got off the phone with Gerard Butler (“This is Spartaaaaa!”). http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124930/

The story goes like this. I switched to a Los Angeles cell phone number (da 310) about 7 years ago. The guy that used to have my current cell number is a well-known director by the name of Joe Carnahan. Well, for about 4 years, my phone rang off the hook with people trying to get a hold of Joe (you can imagine how many calls a day a successful Hollywood director gets)

I haven’t received as many calls recently, but low and behold, todayyyyy, as I’m walking through the UCLA Sculpture Garden, Gerard Butler calls! Of course I didn’t know it was him at first:

Me: “Listen buddy, Joe changed his number 7 and a half years ago.”

Gerard (in smooth Scottish accent): “Oh no man, sorry about that. I haven’t tried this number in years.”

Me: “That’s alright, just tell Joe that the guy with his old cell number is a musician, and he should put our music in his movies.”

Gerard: “Hahaha. Who is this?”

Me: “Matt Frankel. Joe doesn’t know me, but I always tell people that call this number to tell him about my music. Joe has never called, but hey, I’ll tell ya anyways. Who is this by the way?”

Gerard: “Gerard Butler”

Me: (holy crap) “Gerard Butler?! Hahahah”

Gerard: “Listen Matt, I’m really going to pass the word along. What’s the name of your band?”

Right as I’m telling him lady danv…the phone drops the call. As I’m contemplating walking my iPhone in to the local AT&T store and complaining about their temperamental 3g network, Gerard calls back!! …I couldn’t believe it.

Gerard: “Sorry Matt, I’m in the hills of Scotland, and the reception isn’t great. Anyways, you were telling me the name of your band.”

Me: “LADY DANVILLE!!!!!!!!” (i didn’t yell it, but I was really excited he called back)

Gerard: “What would be a good song on iTunes to show Joe for a movie we’re gonna do together? If anyone can influence Joe about the music in this movie it’s me (i think he winked at me over the phone right there, but I couldn’t tell)

Me: “Tired Magician. We’re in the studio recording more tracks now, but give that one a listen.”

Gerard: “Will do. And I’m changing your number in my phone from Joe Carnahan to Matt Frankel.”

Me: “Hahaha”

We continued to talk about music for a few minutes, finished chatting, then I saved his number in my phone. Ha



The phone call made my day, and even if Joe doesn’t put our music in his next movie, Gerard’s gonna hear Tired Magician, and it also led me to this amazing youtube video



In other news, met the guys from Miike Snow last night and they put me and Michael on the list for their Los Angeles show tonight. We saw them this year in Austin and they were great!

I leave you with one of our favorite Miike Snow songs, Silvia.

From a poster on GALS:

I've missed him again!!! Today my friend met Gerry at Glasgow Airport!!! I just never seem to be in the right place at the right time! xx

My friend's dad delivers cars to the airport, so they knew what flight he was coming in on! lol. just typical xx

Interesting that he is going to do a movie with Joe Carnahan. He has projects listed but the details are only available to IMDB Pro users. I wonder if it is one of the movies listed as in development:

Hmmm, I don't have IMDbPro.

So what does it actually say, Dallas?

I don't have it either. I think DK had a trial subscription. Maybe she still does. Does anyone else? Maybe they can look at the details and see which movie sounds like it could be the one.

IMDb lists 5 projects in the works, White Jazz, Killing Pablo, Remarkable Fellows, The Grey, and Taskmaster.

These are all from Wikipedia.org:
He [Joe Carnahan] is also attached to direct an adaptation of James Ellroy's novel White Jazz with George Clooney producing and starring, but Clooney later pulled out from the production. He was also set to direct Mark Bowden's book Killing Pablo, but there is no set release date for the film. Most recently, Carnahan penned Remarkable Fellows for Universal and is writing the action sci-fi piece Cobalt with good friend and actor Brian Bloom. Both Bloom and Carnahan were then hired by Fox for the revamping of their long-gestating A-Team project, based on the hit '80's television series. Carnahan has been slated to direct. Carnahan directed also current the $34 Million thriller The Grey, which stars Bradley Cooper

About White Jazz:
Carnahan has stated that he will still make the film and has "a couple of options in terms of other actors that I am completely over the moon for."

Carnahan has completed the last draft of the screenplay.


About Killing Pablo:
Cast
Edgar Ramirez as Pablo Escobar
Christian Bale as Major Steve Jacoby


About Taskmaster:
Taskmaster is a fictional character, a supervillain in the Marvel Universe. [He] is a mysterious figure believed to have been born in the Bronx, New York City. He has the ability to mimic the physical movements of anyone he witnesses. He works as a combat instructor and trains others to become lackeys for other villains by utilizing the techniques he has learned from his observation of superheroes and participates in mercenary jobs from time to time.

From Variety:
Also set to star in it [Remarkable Fellows] is Jason Bateman, who took part in coming up with the idea.


Looks like 3 projects are cast, leaving White Jazz and Taskmaster.

neat story about Matt and his cell phone call with Gerry. I hope Gerry uses his time in the Highlands to have some peace and solitude and maybe re-think some things he has been doing lately, if, indeed, those things are true.

I listened to "Tired Magician". They are quite good. Lucky for them that Gerry happened to call that number! Quite the story they'll have to tell if it all comes to fruition.

Thanks very much for posting that information, Julie. Much appreciated.

White Jazz sounds intriguing. Carnahan is a well-rounded man.
