Gerard Butler will star again as Secret Service agent Mike Banning in “Angel Has Fallen,” the third film in the “Fallen” franchise comprised of “Olympus Has Fallen” and “London Has Fallen.”

Millennium Films is launching sales next week at the American Film Market and is planning to begin production in the first half of 2017. No director has been set. Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt are writing the script.

“Olympus Has Fallen,” directed by Antoine Fuqua, generated $160 million at the worldwide box office in 2013. This year’s “London Has Fallen” grossed more than $195 million globally.

“Angel” will focus on attackers trying to take down Banning’s character. Producers are Butler, Alan Siegel, Mark Gill, John Thompson, and Matt O’Toole. Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Christine Otal and Heidi Jo Markel will exec produce.

“London Has Fallen” was directed by Babak Najafi and written by Rothenberger, Benedikt, Chad St. John, and Christian Gudegast. Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Alon Moni Aboutboul, Angela Bassett, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, and Melissa Leo also starred.

Butler will appear next in the upcoming sci-fi thriller “Geostorm” and is repped by CAA. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
