Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx star in Emmerich's action thriller

Sony is moving up Roland Emmerich’s action-thriller “White House Down” from Nov. 1 2013 to June 28, 2013.

The date change, announced Monday, puts the Channing Tatum-Jamie Foxx pic against Universal’s “R.I.P.D,” starring Ryan Reynolds, as well as Fox’s laffer “The Internship,” toplined by Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.

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.
