‘Olympus Has Fallen 2′ Gets a Director to Help Destroy London

Film District

As we reported last year, there’s a sequel on the way to ‘Olympus Has Fallen,’ and in ‘London Has Fallen,’ the action will move from D.C. to — wait for it — London. Now the brand new film has a brand new director (but the same old cast) to help dismantle all that glorious old London architecture. If they don’t use a chopped and screwed version of “London Bridge Is Falling Down,” why do we even make movies anymore?

THR reports that ‘London Has Fallen’ has brought on director Fredrik Bond, who most recently directed the Shia LaBeouf film ‘Charlie Countryman’ (previously titled ‘The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman’). So if anyone has experience working with disasters, it’d definitely be the guy who worked with an actor who likes to put paper bags on his head declaring that he is NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE.

Bond is movin’ on up for ‘London Has Fallen,’ working with the trio of Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman, who are all reprising their roles from ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ (spoiler if you have not seen the first film: none of them die). In the new film, the President (Eckhart), a Secret Service agent (Butler), and the speaker of the House of Representatives (Freeman) are attending the funeral of the British prime minister when disaster strikes yet again.

Which major city will these guys destroy next?! Our money’s on Moscow.
