Olympus Has Fallen (2013)[edit]

Disgraced Secret Service agent (and former presidential guard) Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) finds himself trapped inside the White House when North Korean terrorists attack. Using his inside knowledge, Banning must work with national security to rescue the President from his kidnappers.

London Has Fallen (2016)[edit]

In London for the British Prime Minister's funeral, Mike Banning discovers a plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders ordered by a Pakistani terrorist leader and his son.

Angel Has Fallen (2019)[edit]

Mike Banning is framed for the attempt to assassinate the President by a rogue private military company and must race against time to clear his name while uncovering the real threat.

Night Has Fallen (TBA)[edit]

In November 2019, Alan Siegel announced that three additional Has Fallen films are in development.[2] In November 2020 the fourth film, titled Night Has Fallen, was given the greenlight with Butler confirmed to reprise his role as Mike Banning in addition to serving as producer. Waugh will return to the series as director, with a script he co-wrote with Kamen. The project will be a joint-venture production between G-BASE, Eclectic Pictures, Campbell Grobman Films, and Millennium Media. Alan Siegel, Heidi Jo Markel, Les Weldon, Jeffrey Greenstein, Jonathan Yunger, and Yariv Lerner will also serve as producers.[3]

Future[edit]

Following Night Has Fallen, two more movies will follow. In addition to the movies, television spin-offs are being considered. Because of the film series' popularity in other territories, he also announced plans for various television series to debut in foreign countries, with each show's local mother tongues to be the spoken languages. Siegel stated that the intent for TV show installments, would be to expand the franchise and add additional characters to appear in future films.[1][2] In November 2020, producer Greenstein confirmed development for a television series is on-going.[4]
