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]
