Butler Joins <i>Olympus Has Fallen</i>

Don't be fooled by the title, Millennium Films' Olympus Has Fallen isn't a swords-and-sandals affair pitting humans against the gods of old. Instead, it's about a former Secret Service agent trying to stop a terrorist attack on the White House.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gerard Butler has signed on to play that agent. The film doesn't yet have a director, but it was penned by new screenwriting duo Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt. Butler will next be seen in Curtis Hanson's Of Men and Mavericks, which premieres Oct. 26.
