Unsurprisingly, 300-star Gerard Butler's name was immediately connected to the side project in rumors, and now, he's finally confirming them. In a discussion with Empire, the actor says: "I'm going to do the voice of the captain. They're going to do it in the style of a Japanese anime, and I'm totally stoked... It's this decent into madness but explained in such a sane way that you totally feel it yourself. By the end, my heart was pumping!" Butler's over-the-top romance with Hilary Swank may not have inspired the masses, but maybe a return to carnage will -- one that will have him, or rather his anime character, making rafts out of gas-bloated bodies. Isn't that crafty?
So, we've got Gerard's voice leading the Freighter, and it will be done anime. Sound off, Watchmen fiends: Is Zack Snyder right on track with this, or do you think he's off-base?
