FilmDistrict Moves 'Olympus Has Fallen' To March 22, 2013

Deadline:
Perhaps trying to create more space between competing movies, FilmDistrict has moved Olympus Has Fallen to March 22. That film, directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, has a storyline very similar to White House Down, the Sony Pictures film that stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, with Roland Emmerich directing. Both are Die Hard in the White House-style dramas where the the building is overtaken by terrorists and it’s up to a Secret Service agent to save the president. White House Down‘s current date is June 28, but let’s see if Sony changes that. It’s usually better to be first–Capote did much better than the similar-themed Infamous–but not always. Last year, after much jockeying, Relativity Media put its Snow White saga Mirror Mirror out first. Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman did better, and a sequel script was just turned in. (Cinema, Olympus Has Fallen)

I had an idea for a Dark Comedy,where the last person in line to be President attempts a Coup by trying to Kill the people ahead of them in line to be president.
