Olympus Has Fallen sequel planned titled London Has Fallen

October 30th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

With Olympus Has Fallen earning more than $160 million at the worldwide box office, a sequel is on the way according to ScreenDaily. They say that Millennium Films and G-Base are producing a big screen followup, titled London Has Fallen, with Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman all set to return.

The original film saw the White House (codenamed “Olympus”) captured by a terrorist mastermind. With the President (Eckhart) kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning (Butler) finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster.

Katrin Benedikt and Creighton Rothenberger are once again penning the screenplay, which will see a terrorist strike occur in London during the British Prime Minister’s funeral. New to the cast will be an MI6 agent, who teams up with Banning.

Production is set to begin on May 5, 2014.

So what do you think?
