Fredrik Bond To Helm “London Has Fallen”

Fredrik Bond (“Charlie Countryman”) is in negotiations to direct “London Has Fallen,” the upcoming sequel to last year’s White House action thriller “Olympus Has Fallen,” at Focus Features and Millennium Entertainment.

Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are reprising their roles for the film which moves the setting to the United Kingdom. In the follow-up, the U.S. president (Eckhart) and the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives (Freeman) are attending the funeral of the British prime minister when all hell breaks loose and it’s up to Butler’s Secret Service agent to save the day.

Creighton Rothenberger, Katrin Benedikt, and Christian Gedegast worked on the script. Filming is slated to begin in October and Butler, Alan Siegel, Mark Gill, and Matt O’Toole are producing.
