President Aaron Eckhart won't return for Angel Has Fallen

11.16.2016

Well that's a shame. First we lost Obama, now we're losing President Asher too? Apparently so, as it looks like Aaron Eckhart won't be reprising his role as the aforementioned President in the new film in the HAS FALLEN franchise, ANGEL HAS FALLEN. I feel kinda sad that Gerard Butler's Mike Bannon won't have his President buddy tagging along for the action anymore.

Eckhart, talking to Collider about his new boxing film BLEED FOR THIS, had this to say:

The President is retired. He’s golfing and he’s amassing his library right now.

That's a shame. Either way, the new film will basically be a remake of AIR FORCE ONE, as terrorists try to take out Mike Bannon himself on the eponymous plane, rather than the President. Or...is Bannon the President now? Hmm. That's just stupid enough to work...

No release date has been set yet for ANGEL HAS FALLEN, but most likely will come out either summer or winter 2018.

So you guys excited for some head-stabbing in the sky? Sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: Both Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart have played versions of the classic Universal monsters at some point in their careers, Butler as Dracula in DRACULA 2000 and Eckhart as Frankenstein's monster in I, FRANKENSTEIN.

They're doing a last-minute rewrite to make the new president a complete asshole who Bannon shoots himself at the end. Welcome to the next 4 years of Hollywood.

Good for him

I'm actually glad because Aaron Eckhart looked really bored in LHF and was probably doing it for the money or contractual obligation or maybe both and wanted to leave with whatever dignity he has left.
I'm sure Morgan Freeman will be the president this time. Oh, and we lost Obama? I hope my last time-travel trip had nothing to do with it

Even if he isnt President, Echart SHOULD at the very least do a cameo, him and Bannon should be close friends at this point!

If it follows the same formula of the others. It won't be like Air Force One. Air Force One might crash or be taken over and crash, but I'm guessing it won't take place in the air much.
