It took them ten years to get their script about a break-in at the White House on the market and only 12 months to see it come out in theaters. The remarkable story of screenwriting team, Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt, reminds everyone in Hollywood that giving up is not an option.
Their script, Olympus Has Fallen, is the story of an ousted secret service agent, played by Gerard Butler, who must save the president from an intrusion on the most powerful building in the world. It’s directed by Antonie Fuqua (Training Day, Shooter, Tears of the Sun). Not too shabby for a first time writing team.
