Los Angeles, Aug 20 (IANS): Hollywood legend Morgan Freeman is glad that he finally got a chance to share screen space with actor Gerard Butler in "Angel Has Fallen".
"This is actually the first time Gerry and I have really worked together like this," Freeman said, adding: "In the other films, I've been in a safe bunker somewhere, or in DC while he was in London. Finally, we were able to work mano a mano, which was a true pleasure for me. What I love about his portrait of Banning is that he is clearly tough and ruthless but, at the same time, he brings a deep humanity to the role, which is a combination we seek in our heroes."
Butler returns as Secret Service agent Mike Banning in "Angel Has Fallen", the third film in the franchise that includes "Olympus Has Fallen" and "London Has Fallen".
In "Angel Has Fallen", Butler as Banning is on the run from the FBI after being falsely accused of attempting to kill the US President Allan Trumbull, essayed by Freeman. The PVR Pictures and MVP Entertainment will release the film in India on August 23.
