After finding massive critical acclaim and box office success for the historical drama The Butler, Lee Daniels is going another direction entirely.
The Ambiguously Gay Duo this is not.
Daniels described the untitled flick as a gay "Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but [with] the two good-looking guys as the action heroes."
The filmmaker, who produced Monster's Ball before hitting it big as a helmer with 2009's Precious, for which he received an Oscar nomination for directing, added that he's still searching for a handsome African-American actor to play opposite the Magic Mike star. But he's absolutely psyched to have Pettyfer aboard.
