MONTREAL – “Independence Day” director Roland Emmerich is once again wreaking havoc on the president’s pad, and this time he has Channing Tatum along for the ride.
In the upcoming “White House Down,” Tatum plays a secret service rookie named John Cale (no relation to the famed musician, we assume), who is working under a soon-to-be-retired veteran named Walker (James Woods) in order to protect U.S. president Sawyer (Jamie Foxx).

“We’re not curing cancer here,” Tatum laughed. “It’s exactly what I figure movies should be.”
For now, however, he’ll just have to be content being a box office superstar who gets to blow up the White House with an Oscar winning actor at his side.
“White House Down” opens June 28.
