Gerard Butler Stars in New Trailer for ‘The Vanishing’ Based on Real-Life Flannan Isles Lighthouse Mystery

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.

The new film tells the story of these three lighthouse keepers and it assumes a possible scenario of how everything went from bad to worse. Similar to the occurrence at Flannan Isles, Saban Films’ official YouTube account has mysteriously gone silent for the past couple of weeks. Fortunately, the new trailer for the film is available on third party platforms. You can watch it below:

The Vanishing is directed by Kristoffer Nyholm, and it also stars Peter Mullan, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Gary Lewis. There is no official theatrical release date for the film at this time, but it should make its debut shortly. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for full coverage of this eerie project as soon as it breaks!
