Gerard Butler To Star
It sounds like a 90's movie.
Aww... Thought this was literally about Olympus.
"It's been a while old friend. I missed you when Worthington borrowed your services", Gerald said to his Bad American Accent.
Sounds good to me I dont get why he didnt just do action movies after 300 instead of diving into rom coms.
I think Gerald always had weird taste in film. If you look at his resume, his filmography was uneven..even before 300. 300 was just out of sheer luck.
The guy has action star written all over him he really makes weird choices he was the Phantom lol.
No, if this were the 90's it would be the president as the hero, freeing hostages and snapping necks.
Antoine Fuqua Set To Direct
I love 90s style action films.
It sounds like Air Force One, but I think the title is actually pretty good. Even though it's been awhile since 9/11 a movie about Middle Eastern terrorists taking over the White House would not be a bad plot, if that's indeed who they use for the antagonists. Them being angry over the war in Iraq would be a great thing to bring home.
Many people say these 90s style political thrillers are not realistic, I would think that the events of 9/11 should have literally shattered that notion with the World Trade Center because that was a bigger hit than most of these cheesy movies ever had.
Butler + Fuqua = awesomeness.
This was my ideal plot for Die Hard 5.
Not a big fan of Butler but Fuqua is solid, certainly a lot better than Emmerich directing the similar sounding White House Down.
That's a good thing!
Fuqua doesn't shake the camera. He's beyond ideal.
The movie changed its name to White House Taken.
Here's a teaser-poster.
Wow... what a boring title.
yeah I like "olympus has fallen" a lot more..
Make it even more basic:
Movie In Theatre
Isn't there another white house movie called White House Down?
They should've called it Taken: White House so GA will assume it to be the Liam Neeson sequel.
Olympus Has Fallen is so much better as a movie title than this bland and uninteresting alternative.
Yes, with Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.
to be fair Olympus has fallen is an extremely misleading title
The old title was better, this title almost feels like a move to ward off the other movie as it's so similar.
Actually the title still stands. Now with Aaron Eckhart:
