Millennium Films' Die Hard-but-in-the-White-House is, logically, getting its Die Harder-but-in-England. ScreenDaily reports plans are being made for a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, one of the year's two biggest films about a guy briefly interrupting his sit-up regimen to stop an attack on the U.S. President's home. Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, and Angela Bassett are all attached to reprise their roles, though the White House, sadly, will not. This time, the cast is headed to London, where there's a plot to destroy the city and "only the President of the United States, his secret service head and an English MI6 agent can save the day." (The UK government is weakened and distracted by the funeral of the British Prime Minister, and they lack a trained Gerard Butler except in real life.)

The film is obviously going by the title London Has Fallen. Production is already scheduled to begin in May, though a director has not yet been announced. Antoine Fuqua is not returning, so smart money says to hold out for Buckingham Palace Has Fallen.
