Gerard Butler to the rescue ... apparently.
The actor is set to reprise his role in the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen.
Scottish actor Gerard Butler will return to the screen as Mike Banning for the sequel to the successful action film released last March.
The producers of London Has Fallen are currently presenting this sequel to Olympus Has Fallen at the American Film Market in Los Angeles. The screenplay will focus on a large-scale terrorist attack being planned in the British capital during the funeral of the Prime Minister, Screendaily.com reports.
The international importance of the crisis will permit the film’s producers to bring back Aaron Eckhart in the role of the fictional American President Benjamin Asher, whose life was in danger in the original film. Gerard Butler, playing the film’s protagonist, will once again take on the task of saving the world, with help this time from an agent from the MI6, the British Secret Intelligence Service.
Shooting on London Has Fallen is expected to begin on May 5, 2014. Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett and Radha Mitchell will also reprise their roles for the film’s sequel. On the other hand, Antoine Fuqua will not return to the director’s chair, and his replacement has not yet been announced.
