Briefly: Sony is pulling one of the next Channing Tatum movies, formerly called White House Down, up from a November 2013 release to a prime summer slot: June 28 2013. Roland Emmerich‘s film stars Tatum as a secret service agent who has to rescue the President (Jamie Foxx) from a paramilitary takeover of the White House. And now the film gets the Fourth of July weekend in the US as a playground. The film also features Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, and Richard Jenkins.
And what about the title? While White House Down isn’t a bad line, there are multiple reports that Sony is choosing a new name. Jeff Sneider at Variety said the film is currently being referred to as “Roland Emmerich White House Action Thriller.” When we have a new title we’ll pass it along. [THR]
Quentin Tarantino and Jamie Foxx were part of the BET awards tonight, and they didn’t show up empty-handed. A new 60-second spot for Tarantino’s upcoming movie Django Unchained debuted during the show, and has now appeared online.
This spot features a new overt nod to classic spaghetti westerns, as the beginning of the spot features some of Ennio Morricone’s track ‘The Ecstasy of Gold,’ as heard in the climax of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. (There’s a beat thrown over the track; could that be some RZA work? Edit: nope, and it’s not Jay-Z’s ‘Blueprint2,’ it sounds like the Baldini remix of the Morricone theme. )
The ad also has one of the few brief flashes we’ve seen of Samuel L. Jackson in his role for the film, as well as a couple other small bits of new footage. This year’s got a lot of life in it yet, but Tarantino’s picture is one good reason to look forward to December.
Check out the spot below. Read More »

Jamie Foxx will next be seen playing a freed slave turned bounty hunter for Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained, but his role after that will have him climbing all the way to the tippy-top of American society.
The star has just entered talks to play the President of the United States in the thriller White House Down, one of two competing projects being described as “Die Hard in the White House.” This version of the premise comes from director Roland Emmerich and writer James Vanderbilt (Zodiac), has Channing Tatum attached to star, and all in all seems to be farther along. More details after the jump.
UPDATE: Shortly after we posted this story, news broke that Maggie Gyllenhaal had also boarded the cast, in the female lead role of a “patriotic” Secret Service agent.
