In a movie, at least.
Jamie Foxx is in talks to play the President of the United States in Roland Emmerich's upcoming action flick White House Down.
Channing Tatum is reportedly set to play the Secret Service agent that will save save his life when terrorists take over, but after watching the Django Unchained trailer, we're pretty sure Mr. Foxx knows how to take care of himself!

Now that 3D technology has become a successful gimmick at the box office, Hollywood doesn't even need to make unnecessary sequels to make millions of dollars.
We just heard that Twentieth Century Fox plans on releasing a 3D version of the 1996 hit Independence Day!

How many times can effing aliens attack the same planet??
Director Roland Emmerich is reportedly prepping for two sequels to the 1996 box office smash Independence Day, and Will Smith is attached to return!
Writer Dean Devlin is writing the script for the sci-fi explosion-fest, and as of now the films are set to be shot back to back in 2011.
We can't imagine this is going to work - the last two movies franchises shot back to back, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Matrix, were far less well-done than the originals!
Not to mention the aliens can't possibly attack on the fourth of July every year!! What the eff are they going to be called?? Arbour Day and Cinco de Mayo??
What do U think?? Are U excited for new Independence Day movies?
