Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart Lead Returning Cast as London Has Fallen Begins Filming
Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart are setting out to save civilization again, as principal photography on their sequel, ‘London Has Fallen,’ has begun on location in the film’s titular city. The former actor, who is also producing the follow-up, is reprising his role as Secret service agent Mike Banning. The later is once again portraying the President of the United States, Benjamin Asher, in the sequel.
Other cast members who are returning to the follow-up to last year’s worldwide smash hit action film, ‘Olympus Has Fallen,’ include Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman, as Vice President Trumbull; Oscar nominee Angela Bassett, as Secret Service Director Lynne Jacobs; and Academy Award winner Melissa Leo as Defense Secretary Ruth McMillan. ‘Snabba Cash Il’ filmmaker Babak Najafi is taking over the directorial duties for the series’ second installment from Antoine Fuqua, who helmed the original movie. ‘London Has Fallen’s screenplay was penned by Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt, who co-wrote the first movie together, as well as Christian Gudegast and Chad St. John.
‘London Has Fallen’s production company, Millennium Films, and its distributor, Focus Features, will release the sequel on October 2nd, 2015. The companies have released the following synopsis for the follow-up:
The story 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. However, what starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into 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. 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.
Reprising their roles in support are Academy Award nominee Robert Forster as General Edward Clegg, Sean O’Bryan as NSA Deputy Director Ray Monroe, and Radha Mitchell as Leah Banning. Joining the returning cast members are Academy Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley, Alon Aboutboul (‘The Dark Knight Rises’), Charlotte Riley, and Waleed Zuaiter (from the Academy Award nominated film ‘Omar’).
London Has Fallen Has Lost its Director
“Creative differences” are once against cited as the reason behind the reportedly amicable departure of Fredrik Bond (Charlie Countryman) from London Has Fallen, the soon-to-shoot big screen sequel to last year’s hit, Olympus Has Fallen. The Hollywood Reporter has the news, adding that Millennium Films is already hard at work looking for a replacement and expects to announce a new helmer within the next 72 hours.
Star Gerard Butler is returning for the sequel, which is written by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt and Christian Gudegast. The story picks up 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.
London Has Fallen is also set to star Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman and is still expected to lens next month.
The Focus Features release is being produced by Butler, Alan Siegel, Mark Gill, and Matt O’Toole. Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson, Christine Crow, and Focus Features CEO Peter Schlessel will executive produce.

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel Has a Director
Looks like Aaron is indeed reprising his role as the President.
Fredrik Bond, who directed the Shia LaBeouf drama Charlie Countryman, is in negotiations to direct Olympus Has Fallen sequel London Has Fallen for Millennium.
Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are reprising their roles for the feature, which moves the action from the lawn of the White House to London.
The three main characters — a U.S. Secret Service agent (Butler), 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 (again). Christian Gudegast wrote the most recent draft of the script.
The movie, which Focus Features will distribute domestically, is eyeing an October start date.
Butler, Alan Siegel, Mark Gill, and Matt O’Toole are producing. Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt wrote the script.
Bond is a music video director who made his feature debut with Countryman, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Bond has been on the list of many big projects that were in search of helmers (he was on the shortlist for Pirates of the Caribbean 5) and with Fallen he gets his hands on a high-profile sequel.
He is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Sloane Offer.
Cameras ready to roll on Vinny Paz movie
The movie about the incredible comeback of Rhode Island boxing legend Vinny Paz has become a reality.
After more than a decade of hoping, the cameras are getting ready to roll on the film “Bleed for This.”
Paz, a Cranston native, is a five-time world boxing champ. Midway through his career he suffered a fractured neck in an auto accident. Doctors believed he would never box again.
But Paz proved them wrong. His comeback is what hooked movie producer Chad Verdi.
“We have, again, what I consider the greatest comeback in sports history. It was a story that needed to be told,” Verdi said Tuesday.
A first-class cast and producing team has been assembled. The producers are a group of past Oscar nominees and winners.
“It’s literally one of the best producing teams ever in the history of movie making. Like, it’s nuts. Martin Scorsese’s on, Ben Younger, Emma Tillinger, Bruce Cohen. It’s unbelievable,” Paz said.
Miles Teller, who bears a striking resemblance to Vinny, will portray Paz in the movie. Aaron Eckhart takes on the role of Paz trainer Kevin Rooney.
Preproduction is under way. Cameras will roll at local locations starting Nov. 10.
“We are at Twin River. We are at the Dunk Center. We are going to Twin Oaks. We are at the Biltmore hotel, the Gregg’s restaurant,” Verdi said.
The film’s budget is between $10 million and $20 million. Verdi has high expectations.
“We would be selling this short, if it wasn’t a worldwide distribution deal in theaters,” Verdi said.

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel Acquired by Focus Features, Gets Release Date
Aaron isn’t confirmed about returning as the President currently but I wanted to post this anyway.
Domestic distribution rights to London Has Fallen, the sequel to last year’s White House-under-attack actioner starring Gerard Butler, have been acquired by Focus Features, the company said Thursday.
A release date of Oct. 2, 2015, has been slated for the sequel, which returns Butler as a former Secret Service agent. The action in the sequel is kick-started when the prime minister of Britain dies “under mysterious circumstances.”
Focus Features did not state whether Aaron Eckhart will reprise his role as the president of the United States or Morgan Freeman will return as Speaker Allan Trumbell.
Olympus Has Fallen, which was budgeted at an estimated $70 million, was released on March 22, 2013, by FilmDistrict and grossed over $160 million worldwide in theaters.
Antoine Fuqua directed the title, which was one of two films — the other being Sony’s box-office disappointment White House Down — released within several months of each other that depicted the an invasion of the White House.
The sequel will be written by Olympus Has Fallen writers Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt along with Christian Gudegast.

‘I, Frankenstein: Genesis’ Released As A Motion Comic Prologue To The Upcoming Film
With ‘I, Frankenstein‘ coming out on January 24th, 2014, Lionsgate has decided to share with us a three part online motion comic titled ‘ ’I, Frankenstein: Genesis’ to serve as a prologue for the film. The first two chapters are now available online to read. Chapter 1 will be focusing on the character of Adam, aka Frankenstein’s monster, played by Aaron Eckhart (‘The Dark Knight’, ‘Battle Los Angeles’). The next two parts will focus on the backstory of two of the film’s characters: Miranda Otto’s (‘War of the Worlds‘, ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’) Leanore with the concluding chapter to center on Bill Nighy’s (‘The World’s End’, ‘Total Recall’) Naberius.
Here is the official description for the ‘I, Frankenstein’ motion comic:
Ready to discover the history behind I, FRANKENSTEIN? Delve deep into the world of gargoyles and demons with this brand new interactive website! Here’s your chance to become the master of their stories and discover the history between the two warring clans. While on the new site, immerse yourself in the I, FRANKENSTEIN Genesis Graphic Novel! The digital comic presented in parallax motion is an abridged version of Screenwriter Kevin Grevioux’s original graphic novel created as a prequel to the film! Available online, the three chapters will highlight the origin stories for Adam, Victor Frankenstein’s creation, Leonore, the Queen of the Gargoyles, and Naberius, a demon Prince.
The motion comic is not embeddable but you can check it out right here. I highly suggest that once you start reading it that you disable the auto play in the top right hand corner.
I felt for the work put into it that it was a little too short to truly enjoy. Maybe if they had fleshed out a bit more without giving spoilers or released all three at once it would have flowed better.
What do you think folks? Is the motion comic helping to sell you on this film that could take place straight out of ‘Underworld’ or are you still as on the fence about it as I am?
‘I, Frankenstein’ starring Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, and Jai Courtney comes to life on January 24, 2014.
