Nu Image/Millennium Entertainment is set to start principle photography this June if all goes according to plan.

Olympus Has Fallen was released March 22nd, 2013 and stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Finley Jacobsen, Dylan McDermott, Rick Yune, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo. The film is directed by Antoine Fuqua.

    @SherlockHolmes2009, yeah I won't be surprised at all haha. And I agree, out of all the projects he is half-assing at the moment, I wish he would stop and whole-ass the Tupac film.

    I just want this guy to actually direct something. It seems like he gets attached to a new project every month and never goes anywhere with it.
