Gerard Butler had a sobering experience filming new action movie Machine Gun Preacher in South Africa - two crew members were killed during the shoot.

The star plays a reformed drug dealer who starts an orphanage for war-torn kids in Sudan, and he admits the entire cast put their lives at risk to film on location.

The Scottish actor tells the New York Post, "I'm from Glasgow, a tough city. I've been in Africa before. Kenya. We filmed in South Africa not the Sudan, which isn't safe. Two of our people died there while filming. We had carjackings, accidents."

This September will have some decent films to choose from (namely "Contagion" and "Drive"), but with a greater amount of less-than-impressive fare than is normally seen. Either way, this first month in the awards season will have moviegoers flocking to the cinema nearly every weekend.
