OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN is an upcoming action-thriller film directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Tears of the Sun, King Arthur, Shooter) based on a script by Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt in their first screenwriting effort. Gerard Butler stars as a United States Secret Service agent who must stop Korean terrorists from taking over the White House and holding the President of the United States (played by Aaron Eckhart) hostage. Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo, and Rick Yune also star in the film.
When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster.
