Gerard Butler is set to star in Snow Ponies, the action film that marks Darrin Prescott's directorial debut.

Sierra/Affinity is handling sales and will introduce the project to buyers this month at the Berlin Film Market. CAA and WME Global are handling domestic rights.

The film follows a crew of men who travel across difficult terrain to deliver a mysterious package, but are forced to choose between survival and honor when they face brutal obstacles and bandits along the way.

The film, developed from a script written by Pat Healy, was featured on the 2006 version of the Black List.

Kelly McCormick will produce with 87eleven, with Butler and Alan Siegel producing via their G-BASE production company. Sierra’s Nick Meyer and Marc Schaberg will executive produce, along with Healy and Bryan Brucks.

Butler currently is shooting STX's heist thriller Den of Thieves, also starring Pablo Schreiber, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and O'Shea Jackson Jr. Butler is represented by CAA and Alan Siegel Entertainment.

Prescott is represented by WME and McCormick. Healy is represented by The Gersh Agency and Luber Rocklin.

Principal photography is planned for later this year.
