President Benjamin Asher: The United States of America doesn't negotiate with terrorists! Kang: Who said anything about negotiating?
  • It was so hot in Louisiana during the filming of the White House tourist scenes that the Humane Society representative insisted that the German Shepherds being used as K-9 watch dogs be kept in an air-conditioned van between shoots.
  • After the attack on the White House and kidnapping of the President and Vice President, Speaker Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) becomes Acting President of the United States. Freeman previously played the President of United States in Deep Impact (1998).
  • This is one of two movies released to cinemas in 2013 with the same premise: the garrisoning of the White House by criminals who hold the President hostage. The other is White House Down (2013).
  • This is the fourth film in which Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd have appeared in together, but this is the first time that their characters do not share any screen time together. The first three films they worked together in were Kiss the Girls (1997), High Crimes (2002) and Dolphin Tale (2011).
  • Morgan Freeman was filming the crisis room scenes in Louisiana at the height of his Internet death hoax. He often began each day of filming by serenading the extras with old jazz songs and endeared himself to the unsuspecting crew with pranks.
