Sony has set a November 1, 2013 release date for their Roland Emmerich-directed action film, White House Down. Written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, Zodiac) it’s about a “paramilitary take over of the White House,” basically Die Hard meets Air Force One.
Emmerich had previously reserved that date for his sci-fi film Singularity, but with it being put on hold, White House Down will move first, likely to get ahead of a rival project called White House Taken starring Gerald Butler. Emmerich has just begun casting his film. [THR]
