Proving that even a tiny bit of success is all it takes to launch a “franchise” these days, Olympus Has Fallen sequel London Has Fallen will begin filming next year.
Olympus Has Fallen was reportedly made for $70 million, so a $161 million global take means it was profitable, albeit barely.So why not go back to the well and make a version of the film, but this time in London! Yeah, that makes total sense.
Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Radha Mitchell, Angela Bassett and Aaron Eckhart will all be returning for the sequel with filming scheduled to kickoff on May 5, 2014. Why anyone feels the need for this sequel to exist is completely beyond me.
