The story centers on a young Secret Service agent (Channing Tatum) who gets put to the ultimate test when a paramilitary group invades the White House and takes everyone hostage. If a deal is finalized, James Woods will play the head of the President's protection detail. Jamie Foxx and Maggie Gyllenhaal also star.
Roland Emmerich is directing from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt, which was acquired by Sony for a whopping $3 million back in March. The deal still stands as the largest spec screenplay sale of the year, so far.
James Vanderbilt is also producing alongside Brad Fischer, Laeta Kalogridis, Larry J. Franco, and Harald Kloser. Channing Tatum's producing partner and Magic Mike screenwriter Reid Carolin is serving as executive producer.
Production is scheduled to begin next month.
