"Olympus," filmed in Shreveport and Bossier City in the summer of 2012, brought Butler back to the area for a second time since filming the romantic comedy "Playing the Field" with Jessica Biel. Now, he plays an ex-Secret Service agent fighting to defend the Capitol building from terrorists.
Eckhart has also been in Shreveport before. In the 2011 movie "Battle: Los Angeles," he was a Marine Staff Sergeant fighting against aliens who have taken over Los Angeles.
There's also a Facebook page for "Olympus Has Fallen." One interesting list of facts now on the page has a list of the Secret Service codenames for the president, his family, and others who are protected by the Secret Service. For example, Olympus is the actual code name for the White House. President Barack Obama's code name is Renegade while his wife Michelle is known as Renaissance. The very first Secret Service code name used was The General, given to then president Harry Truman.
