Having been a terrorist target not once but twice in actioners Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen, it’s being reported that Aaron Eckhart will not be returning for third instalment, Angel Has Fallen.
Eckhart played President Ben Asher to Gerard Butler’s Secret Service agent Mike Banning in the series, but will reportedly not reprise the role for the threequel, in which Banning himself is rumoured to become a terrorist target, with the title alluding to Presidential jet Air Force One.
Asked about bowing out, Eckhart explained: “The President is retired. He’s golfing and he’s amassing his library right now” before offering a salute.
Angel Has Fallen is currently looking at a 2018 release.
