I’m still bitter that when it came to last year’s “Battle of the Die Hard-in-the-White House” movies, the crown went to Olympus Has Fallen over the vastly superior White House Down. But so it goes, and we will be treated to yet another installment of Gerard Butler‘s Secret Service Agent Mike Banning taking down baddies. Millennium Films has sent out a press release announcing that filming has commenced on London Has Fallen, which sees Banning accompanying the U.S. President (Aaron Eckhart) and Speaker of the House (Morgan Freeman) to attend the funeral of the British prime minister. The press release also includes the first official plot synopsis, and this is my favorite part: “a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future.” All those unknown landmarks? Totally safe.
Hit the jump for the press release. The film opens October 2, 2015, and also stars Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Robert Forster, Sean O’Bryan, Radha Mitchell, Jackie Earle Haley, Alon Aboutboul, Charlotte Riley, and Waleed Zuaiter.
