The sequel is set in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the Western world. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable secret service head, and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.
The project is set to begin production this October with stars Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett and Melissa Leo. It will then stop shooting until February with Gerard Butler coming on to finish the film. The two-part schedule will accommodate the star, who is currently filming Geostorm.
