Construction begins in Bossier City on White House replica movie set

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - Construction on a replica of the White House 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.

The White House facade is for the new Millennium Films project featuring Scottish actor Gerard Butler. 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.
