The acclaimed film director revealed in a recent interview that he’s planning the first-ever gay action hero movie.

Some of the actors from ‘The Butler’ have signed on

As Lee Daniels continues to ride high on the success of his summer blockbuster The Butler, the 53-year-old director is in the process of developing another project that will make film history.

In a recent interview with Out magazine, the $100 million man revealed his plans to create the first-ever gay action hero movie. Alex Pettyfer (The Butler) has already signed on to the project and Daniels is currently looking for his African-American love interest for his vision of an “interracial love affair action movie.”

Daniels describes the flick as a gay “Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but with the two good-looking guys as the action heroes.” And although he’s likely to have a few run-ins with critics, he says he’s not worried about getting the film off the ground.

“I don’t think I’m going to have a problem now. I made $100 million for The Butler,” he said. “I’m in a rare group. So this is something I feel good about.”
