Angela Bassett Joins Antoine Fuqua’s ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ (‘Die Hard’ In The White House)

Angela Bassett Joins Antoine Fuqua's 'Olympus Has Fallen' ('Die Hard' In The White House)

Angela Bassett has signed up to join Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart in Antoine Fuqua's actioner Olympus Has Fallen.

In the film, Butler stars as an unlikely Secret Service agent trying to stop North Korean terrorists who have taken over the White House with plans to detonate a nuclear bomb.

I see that maybe Hollywood is now moving away from the usual Muslim terrorists. Up next under fire? North Korea.

Eckhart will play the U.S. President, while Bassett will play the head of the Secret Service. 

Let's hope she actually is given some to do other than pace back and forth with her arms folded, and a stern expression on her face.

— Funny you mention this. As I began reading I couldn't help but think "I so hope she gets to actually… ACT… in this movie." No reason to not believe she could bring some real edginess and well, action, to a good action film, as opposed to kind of just standing around like she's been cast to do lately (Green Lantern, This Means War)

Yes. Love Angela!

If I wrote that shit Angela would be the Bad-Ass who rescues the president, I would drop Butler off the project, keep Eckhart and find another name actor.
