Gerard Butler's Secret Service agent Mike Banning to return in ANGEL HAS FALLEN

I have a feeling that Gerard Butler would be a huge hit if he should come visit in South Africa. It would seem that just like a large section of our population at the moment, the Scottish-born actor has developed a propensity for things that must fall. First there was the grimly violent Antoine Fuqua directed White House invasion flick Olympus Has Fallen in 2013, then it’s rather sloppily inferior sequel London Has Fallen earlier this year.

Despite a massive downward trend in critical consensus for those two films, the cheaper-made London ended up being even more profitable than Olympus at the box office. And you know what that means? Yep, threequel! Empire reports that Butler has signed on to reprise his role as bad ass Secret Service agent Mike Banning in the upcoming Angel Has Fallen. There’s no mention of Aaron Eckhart though, who played US President Benjamin Asher and Mike’s best friend in the previous two films… and also, the main human shaped bullet-magnet that Mike had to protect.

In sounds now though like Mike will have his hands full protecting himself, as “he’ll be the target this time,” while “his attackers are unafraid to destroy chunks of Washington DC to get to him.” Angel is actually the Secret Service callsign for Air Force One, so it could be that President Asher will make an appearance in some capacity after all. The writing duo of Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt, who co-penned both previous films, will be returning to scripting duty for this one as well.

There’s no word yet a new director as it doesn’t appear that London helmer Babak Najafi will be returning. Judging by how much I was not fan of the sequel, I can’t say that I would be sad to see him go. I actually thought Fuqua did a solid job on the directing with the first movie, so I wouldn’t mind him making a repeat performance behind the camera, though some fresh blood would certainly not be remiss either. As long as whomever they get knows how to film people getting stabbed in the head real good.

  1. I liked Olympus and London has Fallen. Not enough to watch them in the cinema though (saving cinema $$ for big “cinematic universe” style movies these days), but I did get the DVDs 🙂
