Roland Emmerich may direct White House Down for Sony

04.02.2012

Out of all the films that Roland Emmerich has directed, I probably only like three. He's big on disasters that might cause the world to be in peril. That's why I was surprised by ANONYMOUS.

In news that isn't so surprising, Emmerich is thinking of helming WHITE HOUSE DOWN. Yes, that's the title.

Sony Pictures bought the spec script from writer James Vanderbilt (ZODIAC, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) for $3 million last week. Vanderbilt is a little hit or miss for me as well. The title alone makes me skeptical. The film is an action-drama that focuses on, "a paramilitary takeover of the White House" and has been compared to DIE HARD.

If Emmerich takes on the project, this will be his next film then after it, he will direct SINGULARITY.

Hmm.. Die Hard meets Air Force One (which was basically Die Hard on A Plane and Hey! Also done by a German director!

That now only leaves a Mariner One movie.. I wonder who'd do that one?

(*dialing number*).... Yo, Uwe! What's your up-coming schedule like?

Yep, all in the tradition of 'dueling-movies' e.g. The Prestige vs the Illusionist, Armagedon vs Deep Impact, Friends with Benefits Vs No Strings Attached, etc

White House Down sounds like a Monica Lewinsky biopic.
