The previous three films which were titled, Olympus Has Fallen (2013), London Has Fallen (2016), and Angel Has Fallen (2019), did very well at the box office, and the fourth film, Night Has Fallen has already been in active development since 2020.
Paris Has Fallen will be based on the Has Fallen action films. Gerard Butler is the only actor so far confirmed to return in this series, while there is also a good chance of Morgan Freeman returning as Allan Trumbull, who is the President of the United States. The first two films have Aaron Eckhart in the role of the President of the US, Benjamin Asher. UPDATE - Oded Ruskin will be directing a few episodes of the series.
Paris Has Fallen is currently planning to begin filming this Summer in South Wales, UK, and Paris in France. The project was first announced in 2019 by G-BASE’s producer Alan Siegel that he has plans for three more films along with a TV Series that would tie in with the theatrical releases.
Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy, and Howard Overman are the producers attached to this series with Urban Myth Films, G-BASE, and Millennium Media as the production companies. Currently, there is no distribution network confirmed for this series, but it won't be shocking if the distribution rights go to networks like Prime Video or Netflix, which have worldwide reach.
