Gerard Butler’s hands haven’t been this bloody since 300! The gruff actor will return to the silver screen in Saban Films’ The Vanishing, a thriller based on the real-life Flannan Isles Lighthouse mystery. Back in 1900, all three lighthouse keepers mysteriously disappeared without a trace in the middle of a terrible storm. No bodies were ever found, and the island was mostly free of clues save for a few bizarre irregularities. The story became a sensation at the time due to its unresolved elements; and rumors of ghosts, spies, an murderers quickly ran rampant.
