First, he saved the White House. Then, he saved London. Now, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning is going to have to save his next target: himself!
It has been announced that Gerard Butler will be returning for a third installment of the Fallen film series that began with Antoine Fuqua‘s Olympus Has Fallen in 2013, followed by last year’s London Has Fallen. The new installment will go by the title Angel Has Fallen, the “Angel” referring to Banning, who in some aspect, has proven to be the guardian angel in protecting the U.S. President, played in the previous films by Aaron Eckhart.
While no director or announcement of returning characters are intact, what is confirmed is that Millennium Films plans to begin production early next year with Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt working on the script, which will involve Banning himself now the target of the new villains. Millennium Films will be launching sales next week at the American Film Market.
With production to begin early next year, perhaps we will see Angel Has Fallen in late 2017 or early 2018.
