Sounds good I like Antoine Fuqua and Gerard Butler, need to see some footage though.

This is one of two White House under siege movies coming out next year. I'm personally looking forward to the other, White House Down, slightly more. But this one should be cool.

However, BOTH movies will pale in comparison to the 2 episodes of 24 that had the white house taken hostage in the show's seventh season!

I wonder who is playing the president. I looked at IMDB and only saw a listing for Vice President Rodriguez. I couldn't help but laugh and think of Dave Chapelle's stand-up years ago that claimed that the first black president would need to have a hispanic vice president so he wouldn't be assassinated.

I'm pretty sure it's Eckhart who is playing the President in this movie.

In the other one, White House Down, Jamie Fox is playing the President.
