The actor will portray Colonel Janowitz, the handler for the Speaker of the House (Richard Jenkins). Channing Tatum stars as a Secret Service agent who takes action when a paramilitary group seizes control of the White House. Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Joey King, and Jason Clarke also star.
Roland Emmerich is directing from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man). We first reported on this project back in March, when Sony paid a whopping $3 million for the spec screenplay, the biggest script sale to date this year.
It isn't known when production will begin on this action-thriller as of yet.
