Olympus Has Fallen already has Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Angela Bassett onboard, and now it’s added a new name, with Variety reporting that Dylan McDermott has signed up for the Antoine Fuqua movie.
The film sees the White House taken over by terrorists and Butler’s Secret Service agent having to take it back. McDermott is set to play a fellow Secret Service agent, although there’s no info on exactly how he fits into a plot. Eckhart will be the President.
It’s not the only film with this plot of the cards, as Roland Emmerich is putting together White House Down, with Channing Tatum in the lead role.
