In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a pair of films that might just have had a bit of overlap to them!

Olympus Has Fallen began life many years before it got to the screen, but it had an added advantage over its rival in that it had a movie star in place – and Gerard Butler wanted to up the violence quotient a little too.

Sony meanwhile was spending a lot more money on a rival project, White House Down, that started filming last, but tried to release first. Turns out it had a bit of a film story of its own to it, too.
