Night Has Fallen marks the fourth movie in the Has Fallen series, so when will it release and what will the story be? Here’s what we expect next.
Night Has Fallen is set to be Olympus Has Fallen 4, so when will it release and what will the storyline be? In 2013, Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen kicked off the franchise, and new movies have since released every three years. Scottish actor Gerard Butler reprises his lead role in both London Has Fallen and Angel Has Fallen, and he’s been confirmed for the fourth movie as well.
In the Has Fallen movies, Butler stars as Mike Banning; a Secret Service agent who becomes the focus of a political conspiracy. The first time around, he battles North Korean baddies who target the nation’s capital in Washington D.C. Next, Banning protects global leaders from Pakistani terrorists at a London funeral. In the third franchise movie, Banning reunites with his father after being wrongfully accused of plotting the U.S. president’s assassination. The legendary Morgan Freeman co-stars alongside Butler in each film as politician Allan Trumbull.

All of the Has Fallen movies have been box office hits, primarily due to the popcorn thrills entertainment and Butler’s on-screen machismo. The actor has established himself as a viable action star over the years, beginning with memorable roles in Dracula 2000, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life, Beowulf & Grendel, and 300. Now, at age 50, Butler is still perfectly capable of leading a high-profile Hollywood blockbuster action film, albeit somewhat differently than a fellow 50-plus action star like Tom Cruise.
Night Has Fallen Release Date Info
A November 2020 press release didn’t reveal the official release date for Night Has Fallen, but the movie will presumably release in 2022. For the fourth franchise movie, screenwriter Robert Kamen and director Ric Roman Waugh return. Their previous collaboration, Angel Has Fallen, earned nearly $150 million at the box office – a smaller number than each of the first two films.
Night Has Fallen Story Details
An official synopsis hasn’t been released for Night Has Fallen. Based on the events of Angel Has Fallen, Mike Banning will face new responsibilities as the Director of the Secret Service. Meanwhile, he’ll also have a unique domestic life, at least if his father Clay continues to live at the family home.
Night Has Fallen Returning Cast
As of November 2020, only Butler has been confirmed for Night Has Fallen. Morgan Freeman will likely return as Allan Trumbull – the President of the United States who survives an assassination attempt in the third film, and subsequently promotes Banning. Expect the Night Has Fallen narrative to shift outside the United States.
