Scripted by “The Amazing Spider-Man” scribe James Vanderbilt, “White House Down” stars Tatum as a Secret Service agent who leaps into action to defend the U.S. president (Foxx) when a paramilitary group storms the White House. Richard Jenkins and Maggie Gyllenhaal co-star.

Vanderbilt and partners Bradley Fischer and Laeta Kalogridis are producing for Mythology Entertainment, while Emmerich, Larry Franco and Harald Kloser will also produce. Reid Carolin, Tatum’s producing partner at their Iron Horse Entertainment banner, will serve as an exec producer.

“White House Down” begins shooting Wednesday in Montreal.
