The Hollywood Reporter says Fredrik Bond (Charlie Countryman) will direct London Has Fallen, the sequel to the 2013 action film Olympus Has Fallen. Gerard Butler’s set to return as the President’s head of Secret Service Mike Banning and Aaron Eckhart will be back as U.S. President Benjamin Asher. Focus Features is eyeing an October 2, 2015 theatrical release.

The first film was directed by Antoine Fuqua and made $161 million worldwide before exiting theaters.

The Plot:

The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the Western world. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable secret service head (Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.”
