Gerard Butler to Reprise Mike Banning Role in 'Angel Has Fallen'

Gerard Butler has signed on for another movie in the “Fallen” series featuring Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen – the threequel titled Angel Has Fallen!

The film will make Gerard‘s character Mike Banning the target of his enemies – and Air Force One plane with the code-named Angel will also be a target, Deadline reports.

The studio doesn’t have a director set for the new film just yet, but has enlisted writers Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt to pen the script.

A production start date is aimed for the beginning of 2017.

    Good news this! Congratulations! Team Gerry must be ecstatic!
    They need mysterious intrigue and arcing for the Banning character as a few of us expanded on. Glad others were in agreement!

    I’ll be there to see Mike Banning the trajectory is similiar to Liam Neeson’s Taken franchise. Variety/Deadline and The Playlist are reporting this
    Acc to Variety Butler will next be seen in Geostorm- gotta get back to work

  • TeaCakes

    Yeah, but the Taken franchise is good. Fallen—not so much.

    Congratulations, Gerry!

    It’s a matter of taste. I wasn’t too keen on what I have seen of Taken – a bit on telly. I guess the success of Has Fallens can keep GB afloat and it might be enough for him.

    … especially if he has input into the plot.

  • Speechless

    Quite the opposite for me. I liked what Deadpool dude said: The first time your kid gets taken you can blame the bad guys, the second and third time maybe you are just a bad dad!

    TC likes to blow her poison darts, why bother! The first two Taken films were cool. Then it was him they were after using his family, what’s left of it. It happens like that. I watched BBC’s MI-5. There is a format ‘they’ use to get you to cooperate: finances, friends, family. And if I’m not mistaken, in that order.

    Not feeling the title yet – but yay! :-)

    I wonder if MB will be brought back “in” (if she’s really “out”) during the filming of this one, or a new lady, OR dun, dun, dun – he’ll be/stay single and just be in ‘focused’ work mode?!?!

  • Maggie P.U.

    As I said..before you pass judgment…especially blowing or spewing poison….look at your own words….now, please hit me with your best…or even all you got. People are entitled to their own opinion, take, say etc. You make it quite clear when they go after you….leave her alone. She and I have disagreed…it is what it is.

    Tea is hilarious and I like her. I don’t care what she feels or doesn’t feel about Gerry. Perhaps you shouldn’t care so much?

    LOL! Yeah, movie likes/dislikes are totally subjective.

    She was an adult out living her life. Unless you’re an obsessive helicopter parent it is kind of hard to keep track of them. Just sayin’

    Oh that’s right you’re here for funny. My bad.

    Perhaps you should care more?

  • logik69

    Yawn.

  • logik69

    You mean as intriguing and arcing as the first two movies? Don’t get your hopes up.

    Bad guys get killed eventually. Gerry scowls for 90 minutes. Lots of explosions and sub par CGI courtesy of cheapskate Lerner. Democracy is saved. The end.

    Yeah at least throw in some hot steamy sex scenes. Add in a First Lady for Banning to boink. I am declaring my copyright on this fantastic idea.
