Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are set to return with Christian Gudegast, Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt penning the script.

The story follows the three main characters to London as they attend the funeral of the British prime minister. The trio is suddenly caught in the middle of plot to kill all the world leaders who are in attendance at the funeral.

Butler is producing with Alan Siegel, Mark Gill and Matt O'Toole.

Bond most recently helmed the Shia LaBeouf movie "Charlie Countryman." He is repped by CAA and Management 360.
