Winona joining “Olympus Has Falling”

Monday, Jul 16, 2012

I’ve been reading about this film for a while and we got some news today that Winona joined it.

The movie, which is being directed by Antoine Fuqua, begins shooting this week in Shreveport, La., with a cast that includes Gerry Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Cole Hauser, Radha Mitchell, Melissa Leo, Robert Forster and Rick Yune.

Butler is playing an unlikely Secret Service agent trying to stop Korean terrorists who have taken over the White House and take the president (Eckhart) hostage. Winona is reported to play the first lady. Forrester will play a high-ranking general who is forced to deal with the nuke-loving terrorists.

It seems Winona replaced Ashley Judd, who was going to do the First Lady part.

Thanks, as always, to Chris B for the heads up.
