Olympus Has Fallen to get a sequel entitled London Has Fallen

Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman returning

This year's first White House action movie, Olympus Has Fallen, was a surprise success at the box office, taking in $161 million worldwide on a relatively modest budget.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, that success is now to be rewarded with a sequel, with plans afoot for terrorist-based mayhem in the UK with London Has Fallen.

The new film will revolve around a story following a plot to attack London during the funeral of the Prime Minister. Needless to say, we can expect explosions, and plenty of them.

Headline stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are all in place to reprise their roles, as are supporting players Angela Bassett and Radha Mitchell, although director Antoine Fuqua is thought to be unlikely to return.

Millenium Films is currently aiming for a May 2014 production start date, with Katrin Benedikt and Creighton Rothenberger currently working on the script. Directors are currently being tapped, with a release date pencilled in for early 2015.

      Olympus Has Fallen was one of the worst movies I saw this year.

      I have to say that after watching the first half hour of the first film (which lacked intelligence, made a mockery of American security, was implausible to the zenith and was unintentionally amusing), I switched it off and won't be going anywhere near the sequel.

      I couldn't decide which white house movie to watch and ended up passing on both of them.

      I loved the first movie, and @joseywales most movie are not meant to portray real life, they are meant to stretch the imagination and it's a great action film it does what it says on the tin
