So the screenwriter who wrote The Amazing Spider-Man just sold a spec script to Sony called White House Down, which is about a paramilitary takeover of the White House.
The project is being compared to Die Hard and the studio knew just who to go to when they were looking for a director to properly destroy the President of the United States' home — Roland Emmerich!
The blockbuster filmmaker has blown it to smithereens twice, once in Independence Day and another time in 2012. Considering it sounds like most of the action takes place inside the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue house, the structure might at least make it to the end of the movie before falling to the ground in flames.
No word on who is starring in the action flick, but it's always fun to watch Mr. Emmerich blow stuff up on screen, so we're looking forward to this. How about U?
