Last we posted any news regarding the filmmaker was last month, when we announced Antoine Fuqua may be directing a screen adaptation of the Fox series 24.

Now it looks like Fuqua is early talks to direct the Millenium thriller Olympus Has Fallen, described as a “Die Hard in the White House," according to this THR report.

Olympus, penned by first time scribes Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt, and produced by Gerard Butler, Millenium president Mark Gill and Butler's manager Alan Siegel, will star Butler as an "unlikely Secret Service agent trying to stop terrorists who have taken over the White House."

Apparently Millenium is frantically rushing to go into production as soon as this June since Columbia Studios acquired a similarly-themed flick titled White House Down. However, it looks like Olympus will march ahead since Gerard Butler is already attached to star.

We should hear more about this project soon enough. I wonder who else will be cast..
