Aaron Eckhart is to play the US President in a new thriller.

The 44-year-old actor - who played Harvey Dent/Two-Face in Batman flick The Dark Knight - has signed up for Olympus Has Fallen, reports Variety.

He will join Gerard Butler in the movie, about terrorists taking over the White House.

Law Abiding Citizen star Gerard has already been cast as a down-on-his-luck former Secret Service agent who is called upon to help as the terrorists take hold.

Gerard and his manager Alan Siegel will produce the movie with Millennium Films' Mark Gill.

The flick - which will be directed by Antoine Fuqua - is due to start shooting later this year.
