Gerard Butler to star in Den of Thieves

Gerard Butler has been cast in the 'Den of Thieves'.

The 44-year-old actor will star in the film which follows a ''legendary bank heist crew decides to rob the Federal Reserve in Los Angeles right under the nose of a rogue sheriff's deputy'', reports Variety.com.

The film will be helmed by Christian Gudegast, who also co-wrote the script alongside Paul Scheuring.

Mark Canton, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Alan Siegel are producing, with Chris Bender, JC Spink and Butler executive producing.

Butler recently pulled out of the 'Point Break' remake where he was due to step into the late Patrick Swayze's shoes in a reboot of the classic 1991 surfer heist film.

It is believed he opted out of playing central character Bodhi due to a scheduling conflict and unnamed ''creative differences''.

The Hollywood hunk, who last hit the big screen in 2013's action thriller 'Olympus Has Fallen', is next set to star in 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' where he lent his voice to the character of Stoick the Vast.
