Jamie Foxx is in talks to play the President of the United States in Roland Emmerich’s White House Down, Deadline reports. He’d join Channing Tatum in the big screen action thriller.
The film, written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man), is set up at Sony Pictures and is said to feature a para-military takeover of the White House.
Foxx can soon be seen in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, playing the title character in the Christmas day release.
Mythology Entertainment partners Bradley Fischer, Vanderbilt and Laeta Kalogridis will produce White House Down, planned to hit theaters on November 1, 2013.
