‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel ‘London Has Fallen’ Set For October 2015; Gerard Butler Returning & Synopsis Revealed
Focus Features send word that they’ve picked up US distribution rights to ‘London Has Fallen,’ the sequel of the 2013 box office hit ‘Olympus Has Fallen.’ Star Gerard Butler will return for the sequel written by Creighton Rothenberger, Katrin Benedikt and Christian Gudegast. The sequel begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the Western world. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable secret service head (Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.

Amini is also making his directional debut on the film. The official synopsis can be read below. ‘The Two Faces Of January’ opens on May 16th.
