Gerard Butler has ditched his fake American accent in his latest film Playing For Keeps.
The trailer shows Butler take up his native Scottish voice as he plays a former Celtic footballer named George Dryer who's trying to redeem himself with his son.
From the director of The Pursuit of Happyness, Gabriele Mucino, the romantic comedy also stars Jessica Biel as his son's mother, Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Dennis Quaid.
Looking for a way to rebuild his relationship with his son, George gets roped into coaching the boy’s football team but acting like an adult proves challenging when there are attractive "soccer moms" who pursue him at every turn.
Back in 2009 Butler said he was worried about losing his Scottish accent. He told Hollyscoop: "I've spent a year and a half now playing roles as an American and I'm not comfortable enough doing those accents only when we film, so I have to keep it up all the time. I really hate myself for doing that."
The film is set for release in cinemas 1 February 2013.
