“Twilight” actress Rachelle Lefevre is keeping busy and has just signed on for two upcoming action features – Roland Emmerich’s “White House Down” at Sony Pictures and Gary Fleder’s “Homefront” at Millennium Films says Heat Vision.
‘Down’ deals with a paramilitary takeover of the White House. Lefevre will play the ex-wife of Channing Tatum’s Secret Service agent character who must save the U.S. President (Jamie Foxx).
“Homefront” follows an ex-DEA agent (Jason Statham) fighting a local drug lord (James Franco) in a small town. Lefevre will play a school psychologist who tries to warn Statham’s family about the dangers of living there.
‘Down’ is currently shooting in Montreal. “Homefront” kicks off filming next week in New Orleans.
