The Third Installment of The OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN Trilogy Gets a Director
Ric Roman Waugh, directed the Dwayne Johnson-starrer Snitch, has signed on to direct the Olympus Has Fallen sequel.
The Hollywood Reporter reports Gerard Butler will reprise his role in Millennium Films' Angel Has Fallen, the third installment following the action flicks Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. Butler normally plays the Secret Service agent who has kept American presidents safe, but this time around, he's the target.
Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt, who created the Olympus has Fallen franchise, are writing the script for this third installment. This follows Antoine Fuqua's 2013 film Olympus Has Fallen, which earned $161 million worldwide. Babak Najafi's London Has Fallen, released earlier this year, grossed $195 million globally.
No more casting details or release date yet. I'm excited to see what happens in this third installment, the previous two movies were, afterall, pretty entertaining.
