Agent Banning is a Secret Service agent assigned to Presidential Detail. After a tragic accident, he is demoted and assigned to desk duty. But when terrorists capture the White House and kidnap the President, Banning takes action and, using his in-depth knowledge of the White House, finds himself with one more chance to make things right.

President Asher is everything the President of the United States should be - strong, proud, and unyielding. He loves his country almost as much as he loves his son - his only weakness. With the country facing its biggest threat, Asher must remain steadfast and resourceful, even as he faces a terror unlike any he could have ever foreseen.

Congressman Allan Trumbull is the seasoned Speaker of the House. A veteran politician, he is well-spoken, perfectly composed, and a respected leader. He has no problem assuming command when the President is taken hostage. He will unflinchingly make even the most difficult decisions when it comes to protecting the country.

Lynne Jacobs is the steely, strict, and tough director of the Secret Service. Excellent at her job, she’s known for always having everything under control. After terrorists take control of the White House, she’s a vital part of the security team working feverishly to save the president and her country during the crisis.

First Lady Margaret Asher is both the love of the President’s life, and young Connor’s beloved mother. Her death leads to Agent Mike Banning’s disgrace and demotion – a burden that weighs upon his conscience to this day.

The tough, unsmiling Secretary of Defense, Ruth McMillan is strong and courageous, but has never experienced the kind of pressure only an attack on the White House can create. No matter how much you prepare – you never know how you will behave in a disaster until it happens to you. Will she rise to the occasion, or crack under pressure?

A former colleague of Banning’s, he was present on the tragic night of the First Lady’s death. Forbes has since retired from the Secret Service, and he now works private security for South Korean Foreign Minister Lee. As such, he has a front row seat to the events that unfold in the White House.

As an aide to a visiting Foreign Minister, Kang appears to be unassuming, with the quiet demeanor of an accountant - but beneath his reserve lies the heart of a cold-blooded killer whose only goal is to bring the United States of America to its knees.

One of the foremost industry talents of his generation. In his debut film, The Replacement Killers, Fuqua introduced Chow Yun Fat to American audiences. When he helmed the highly successful police drama Training Day, it cemented Fuqua’s place as a talented director of films that resonate thematically and personally with audiences around the world.
