Good news everyone, Gerard Butler will be returning to the newest instalment of the Fallen franchise! A fourth film will be heading to screens, following on from 2019’s Angel Has Fallen. And we are so glad that the Scottish actor is back for another enthralling ride!
The movie industry has struggled over the last year, with cinemas closing and many filsm pushed back indefinitely. 2020 has proven a scary time for the world of entertainment, with so many projects cancelled. But thankfully, the Fallen Franchise has stood the test of time! The popular film will see Gerard Butler return to his starring role after the success of previous movies. Robert Kamen will also be returning to the screenplay. We already can’t wait!
There is no news yet on whether Morgan Freeman or Nike Nolte’s character will be returning, but that’s not the only thing that has to be revealed. No date has also been set, with production yet to start due to safety precautions. President of Millenium Media Jeffrey Greenstein said he hopes shooting can start in 2021. “We’re hoping to do it in 2021. We’re working with Gerard Butler and Ric Roman Waugh on the specific dates. Our partners are very happy about it. We’re also beginning to develop it as a TV series”. Yes you read that right. It’s also going to be a TV series!
The original movie Olympus Has Fallen launched back in 2013, and has since seen its popularity increase. Surprisingly, filming budgets have decreased, but with a stellar storyline, we can see why everyone loves the Fallen series. The latest instalment sees Mike Banning, played by Butler, attempting to clear his name. IMDb synopsis says:
“Mike Banning is framed for the attempted assassination of the President and must evade his own agency and the FBI as he tries to uncover the real threat”.
Variety also reports that another Fallen film isn’t the only action movie that could be coming in the future. High impact franchises seem very popular, especially with the success of the Fast and Furious movies. Rumors suggest there will also be another Expendables movie hitting cinemas in years to come. Our heart rate can’t take it!
Could we be seeing the new Fallen movie on streaming services first? Well that could be more likely now Netflix has launched its own TV channel!
