BREAKING…Antonine Fuqua has been offered Olympus Has Fallen, the White House takeover scripts by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedickt that Gerry Butler will star in for Avil Lerner’s Millennium. Fuqua is thinking it over, but he’s mulling numerous other jobs too, including Chicagoland, a crime story for New Line with a script by Peter Morgan. He’ll also be in the mix for the 24 movie when that comes back

around on Kiefer Sutherland’s next hiatus. Fuqua’s repped by CAA. There is a reason for Lerner to want to hurry, after Roland Emmerich signed to direct a similar project, White House Down at Sony. Both are Die Hard At 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and how many of those can you have?

Rothenberger & Benedickt are represented by Gersh and attorney Rob Szymanski.
