Roman Waugh is set to direct the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. Waugh, who has helmed the likes of Snitch and Felon in the past, will direct Gerard Butler in Angel Has Fallen, which will also see Morgan Freeman return as Speaker Trumbull.
Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt are writing the script for the film, which will see Butler’s Secret Service agent Mike Banning find himself becoming the target of a terrorist attack mid-flight on Air Force One.
There are no timescales as to when we may expect to see the film in cinemas, but we’re guessing we’re now look at at least a late 2018/ early 2019 debut.

Deadline reports that Sylvester Stallone and producer Avi Lerner, whose Nu Image/Millennium company has produced and financed all of the Expendables movies, can't find common ground on the script or who will take over as the new director. Another point of contention is the use of Avi Lerner's own VFX house, the Bulgaria-based Nu Boyana, with Sylvester Stallone reportedly worried about the "underwhelming" results of this franchise. »
