[adrotate banner=”1″]Of all the double-dipping film races to exist, this is the weirdest one. There are two films in development where people attack the White House, and of course only one Secret Service Agent can save the day. After all, none of these presidents are Harrison Ford, the most butt kicking president ever (take that, Abe Lincoln!)
Sony brings us White House Down, featuring Channing Tatum as a secret service officer and Jamie Foxx as the president. Roland Emmerich directs. Meanwhile, Millennium Films is giving us Olympus Has Fallen, featuring Aaron Eckhart as the president and Gerard Butler as the heroic Secret Service Agent. Angela Bassett will also star, and Antoine Fuqua directs.
If you can’t wait to see people shooting in the White House, be sure to check out Megiddo: The Omega Code 2, as they have a pretty killer White House shootout scene.
