The White House action thriller “Olympus Has Fallen” will get a sequel.
NuImage/Millennium Films is bringing back stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman – this time to London, where the plot has POTUS (Eckhart) and his trusted Secret Service bodyguard Mike Banning (Butler) plus an English MI6 agent as the only ones who can stop a plot to take down London during the Prime Minister’s funeral.
Angela Bassett and Radha Mitchell will also reprise their roles as the director of the Secret Service and Mike’s wife, respectively, while Freeman is back as senator Allan Trumbull.
Katrin Benedikt and Creighton Rothenberger, who scripted the first Fallen flick, will write the sequel.
Filming begins in London next May.
