Robert Luketic‘s The Ugly Truth was among the worst reviewed films of Gerard Butler‘s career, so I can’t say I’m all that thrilled to hear that a reunion is brewing for the pair. Butler has signed on to replace Eric Bana in Brilliant, a thriller about “a small-time criminal who partners with a female thief to pull off a daring diamond heist.” The female lead has yet to be cast.
