Producer Les Weldon, the mind behind high-grossing franchises such as The Expendables and The Hitman’s Bodyguard, opened up about the future of the Gerard Butler-fronted Has Fallen series in a recent chat with Collider. It’s been a hiatus since 2019’s Angel Has Fallen hit the screens, completing what seemed like a trilogy. With fans curious about more adventures for Butler’s character, Mike Banning, Weldon offered some insights.
When quizzed about the upcoming instalment, Night Has Fallen, and its potential to launch a new trilogy, Weldon echoed his earlier sentiments about The Expendables, saying, If the next one performs well, everything’s on the table.
In a surprising twist, the franchise is also expanding into television with Paris Has Fallen, a series slated to star Mathieu Kassovitz as a French Minister’s top bodyguard. Gerard Butler is expected to make a cameo appearance.
Details about Night Has Fallen remain scarce, sparking questions about the project’s status. Nonetheless, Butler is confirmed to return, adding a glimmer of hope for the franchise’s avid followers.
