The build of the White House facade is for the new Millennium Films project "White House Taken" featuring Scottish actor #GerardButler is under way in Bossier City for the latest movie production to come to Hollywood South.

The set will be located in a field next to the CenturyLink Center at Arthur Ray Teague Parkway and Walker Place. As a result, Walker Place has been reduced to one lane (eastbound) for the duration of the construction. It's not clear how long that will take.

Walker Place will be also made to look like Pennsylvania Avenue. Some additional road closures are expected when filming when filming begins in July.

Due to a conflict involving international distribution rights, the film's original title, "Olympus Has Fallen," has been changed to "White House Taken."

The production will bring the "300" star back to the area for a second time since filming the romantic comedy "Playing The Field" with Jessica Biel, currently in post-production and due out in December. Now he'll play an ex-Secret Service agent fighting to defend the Capitol building from terrorists.

Filming is expected to begin in July and continue through August. "It's a very big project," said Millennium Films president Diego Martinez when confirming the project in early May. "The tag line I've seen is 'Die Hard in the White House,' is what they're calling it," so it should be very very exciting."

Martinez says it will be the biggest project Millennium ("The Expendables," "Righteous Kill") has done in Louisiana to date, and that they are in the process of signing yet another big name to portray the president in the movie.

Olympus is set for release in 2014.

I'm amazed how fast they can build something like this since they'll be filming in a month or so! Putting people to work is always a good thing!

Thanks for the info, Barb!

Gerry seemed to enjoy Shreveport last time. I hope it isn't to terribly hot since

it is filming in July and August.

Guess he's going to play this part clean shaven since the razor commercials are

supposed to be filmed in June.

Love him absolutely,

Sandy

I wonder if this one will make it to a local theater...and why am I always saying that? Why the heck don't his movies get the press and the play? I don't get it. Hasn't his ability to portray a character made lots of money for the studios? I hate having to wait for DVD releases:tantrum:.

I agree with you I also don't like waiting to until his movies come out of DVD. I wish all of his movies would make it to all local theaters.
