On Guy Ritchie's return to form and a flashback-cameo for King Leonidas

RocknRolla is, critics are rumbling, Guy Ritchie‘s powerful return to form, a snappy ensemble crime caper featuring drug dealers, Russian billionaires, rock stars and a priceless painting. And with two sequels planned, along with a big-screen adaptation of Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr., it seems the inventor of the mockney gangster flick has returned from the rocky road of Revolver and Swept Away.

His lead in RocknRolla, Gerard Butler, couldn’t be on finer form. After breaking out in a big way as Leonidas in Zack Snyder‘s excellent 300, the Scottish actor is now one of Hollywood’s most beloved A-listers, even an appearance in the risible P.S. I Love You didn’t seem to shake his cool.

RT caught up with Butler in London to talk RocknRolla and learn more about the rumours of a 300 sequel. Would the actor be up for hitting the gym for a potential flashback-cameo from Leonidas in follow-up? Watch the feature and find out!
