Trivia Olympus Has Fallen

Ironically, Rick Yune, who plays the villain, was born in Washington D.C.. The role of the Secret Service director was originally written for a man. Antoine Fuqua persuaded Angela Bassett to audition, then had the role re-written for a woman. Winona Ryder was the studio's first choice to play the First Lady.
