Machine Gun Preacher Gerard Butler had a sobering experience filming new action movie Machine Gun Preacher in South Africa - two crew members were killed during the shoot.

The star plays a reformed drug dealer who starts an orphanage for war-torn kids in Sudan, and he admits the entire cast put their lives at risk to film on location.

The Scottish actor tells the New York Post, "I'm from Glasgow, a tough city. I've been in Africa before. Kenya. We filmed in South Africa not the Sudan, which isn't safe. Two of our people died there while filming. We had carjackings, accidents."
