Gerard Butler, of bearded "300" fame, is the latest to join the cast of "The Untouchables: Capone Rising," Variety reports. Butler will topline the film, playing one of the leads.

Butler is quoted as saying, naturally, that the script to "Capone Rising" is so good it’s "unbelievable." He joins Nicolas Cage, playing Al Capone himself, in this prequel to 1987’s "The Untouchables."

Director Brian de Palma will begin shooting "Capone Rising" in October, with distributor Universal angling for a release sometime in 2008.
