The Judge scribe Bill Dubuque wrote the script.

Production begins October 26 in Toronto on the pic, which Butler and Williams will Voltage Picturesproduce with Alan Siegel. Dubuque, Danielle Robinson and Dan Bekerman are exec producing. Voltage Pictures has taken international rights to the pic and will be selling it at the Toronto International Film Festival this month. CAA brokered the deal and also will handle the domestic sale.

The Scotland-born Butler voiced Stoick in the How To Train Your Dragon films and most recently starred in Playing For Keeps and Olympus Has Fallen. He recently wrapped roles in the latter’s London Has Fallen, Dean Devlin’s Geostorm and Alex Proya’s Gods Of Egypt. He next stars in Hunter Keeper opposite Willem Dafoe, Billy Bob Thornton and Common. He is repped by CAA and Alan Siegel Entertainment.

Dubuque, who also wrote the upcoming Ben Affleck film The Accountant, is with CAA, Zero Gravity Management and Bloom Hergott.
