lee daniels "The Butler" New York Premiere - Outside Arrivals

Director Lee Daniels is no stranger to controversy. With films like The Butler, Precious and The Paperboy under his belt, he’s known to tell stories that other Hollywood filmmakers stray away from.

In a recent interview with Out Magazine, the 53-year-old revealed that his upcoming project will be the first-ever gay action hero flick. He described it as “a gay Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but with the two good-looking guys as the action heroes.”

The openly-gay director said actor Alex Pettyfer will star  in the “interracial love affair action movie.”

“He’s so hot, isn’t he? So hot. And so aware of his hotness in a way that’s so…I love him to death,” he said.

And as far as the not-so-surprise ending, Daniels told the magazine: “We don’t find out they’re gay until the end of the movie.”

Thanks to the success of The Butler, he added that big box office bucks are no longer a concern for him.

“I don’t think I’m going to have a problem now. I made $100 million for The Butler,” he said. “I’m in a rare group. So this is something I feel good about.”
