Emmerich To Take The ‘White House Down’

April 3, 2012

Roland Emmerich is in talks to direct the action drama White House Down according to Deadline.

James Vanderbilt wrote the script that sees a paramilitary takeover of The White House

Sony Pictures paid $3 million for the script, the highest amount for a spec script sale so far this year.

Emmerich, Vanderbilt, Harald Kloser, Bradley Fischer and Laeta Kalogridis will produce.

Production hopes to kick off this Fall.

Is it me–or does this project emulate another new action-adventure film Olympus Has Fallen poised to star Gerard Butler?
