Biancardi! Gerard Butler Spotted in Detroit!

Some friends who often go out for after-work drinks spotted him at a table near the bar at the Westin Book Cadillac last night. I asked my friend W[here]TH her camera phone was! He's shooting a movie in my neck of the woods.

Actor Gerard Butler will be in Melvindale July 8-28 to shoot scenes from the new Lionsgate film "Machine Gun Preacher" before moving to South Africa to film the remainder.

The film is based on the true story of Sam Childers, a missionary in southern Sudan who really is referred to as the "Machine Gun Preacher."

Childers is a former gang biker and drug dealer from Pennsylvania who became a member of the Assembly of God church and later visited Sudan.

While in Africa, he witnessed the work of the Lord's Resistance Army, a militant group in northern Uganda and southern Sudan that captured children and forced them to be child soldiers and s*x slaves.

"I seen the body of a small child that stepped on a land mine," he said in the television news interview embedded below. "I remember I stood over that body and I said, 'God, I'll do whatever I can to help these kids.'"

B, I hope you catch a glimpse of him! As you know, there's not a whole lot of places to hang out in Melvindale, he should be easy to find! LOL.

I wonder if Gerard knew you'd be there at the same time biancardi. Whoohoo!

Because I grew up with this naive expectation of people doing right, I get shocked by every little violation.

This week they were shooting a new Harold and Kumar movie in my city - Troy, MI. They were shooting at Somerset Mall and they had the center court all decorated like they do for Christmas. On Tuesday they were shooting at a chinese restaurant a couple of miles from my home.

carol-lamb...this new-found movie industry here in Michigan can be quite a bit of fun, can't it? I work downtown and have seen several movies shooting down there.

Biancardi, I think you should make arrangements to hang out at least one night in the bar at Roast in the Book Cadillac. I have to guess that's where he's staying since he was spotted there. The only other places I can think of might be the Townsend in Birmingham or the Ritz-Carleton in Dearborn.
