Variety reports that the Channing Tatum-starring action thriller will now be released in June of 2013, as opposed to its originally-planned November 2013 release.
Tatum stars as a Secret Service agent who must defend the US president (Jamie Foxx) after the White House is taken hostage by a paramilitary organisation.
The Dark Knight Rises actress Joey King will play Tatum's daughter, who is taken captive, while Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods and Richard Jenkins also star.
James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, Zodiac) penned the script, while Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) will direct.
White House Down begins filming today (August 7) in Montreal.
