Gerard Butler's Motor City shut down

Movie stars Gerard Butler, Adrien Brody and Mickey Rourke are on the hunt for jobs after their new film was shut down by producers.

The trio was supposed to begin production on Motor City later this month, but producers have decided not to press on with the film.

A statement from a movie representative reads: "Faced with the realities of a very short post-production schedule and complicated visual and special effects, the producers have decided to push back production on Albert Hughes' Motor City.

"The circumstances surrounding this project made it impossible to meet the firm March 31st delivery date without compromising the quality of the film."
