Robert Burns - The Legend - Gerard Butler Role - Help Make It A Reality!!!

This petition was published by ALEXANDRIA on Feb 23, 2007

We, the undersigned, call on the Scottish Government, Heritage Funding and Scottish Film Commission to commit funding / various other resources and Awareness to a Burns Film in honor of - The year 2009 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns.

It is only fitting that a Scotsman such as Gerard Butler play the role - A role he was indeed born to play

One project Butler hopes to take on next year is a biopic of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. "It is a project I am passionate about, and though it has been a struggle to get financing, it is my full intention to make it," he says.

We can help make this a reality with our show of support!!!

The Power of Fan Support can indeed move mountains and make the world stand up and take notice.

You have nothing to lose if you do not try!!

I am a transplanted Scot with roots in the Grant Clan and live in Canada and appeal to all who know it in their heart that this indeed can become a reality!!

Join Rosemarie and I as we take on this challenge and forward the Petition to the Scottish Government Funding Agencies / Film Commission and Film Industry and to create World Wide Awareness and Support for this Future Burns Project.

Help us Celebrate Homecoming 2009 and Robert Burns and a future Burns Film to bring our Bard to the world!!
