–Logan Lerman gets some guidance from Chris “Ludacris” Bridges in this clip from Lionsgate’s upcoming movie Gamer. In the movie, which opens September 4th, Logan plays Simon, a young gamer with rock star status who continues to defy all odds by guiding death row prisoner, Kable (played by Gerard Butler), to victory each week in the first-person shooter game “Slayers,” a game that allows millions to act out their most savage fantasies online in front of a global audience, using real prisoners as avatars with whom they fight to the death.
For most of the story, Simon is able to control the brutality of the game from the comforts of his high-tech gaming room, which Lerman describes as “working with little orange dots everywhere, which is a little complicated, but you get used to it. You get the flow of things and you adapt to the different style. It’s cool.”
In one particular scene, Simon actually appears on the battlefield with Kable, which was an intimidating experience for Lerman. “It was just so overwhelming,” Lerman says, laughing. “I give a lot of credit to Gerard to be able to focus with explosions going off and people getting shot right in front of him. It’s crazy stuff. I felt more at home in the studio.”
