Okay, “S.W.A.T” was one of those films that its OK to see a couple of times, but after that its gets old really fast. I mean, the lines were cheesy, the dialogue was bad, the action was boring, and the story was dull. It was like watching a half-assed version of a Michael Bay film, and I actually love his films.
Well, the film did gross 200 million at the box-office, so naturally we would get a sequel. And “Next Day Air” director, Benny Boom, is set to direct it.
Thanks to /Film:
“Columbia Pictures, Original Film, and producer Neal Moritz have apparently hired Next Day Air director Benny Boom to helm the sequel. The film, titled S.W.A.T.: Fire-Fight, already has a screenplay written by Reed Steiner, a television writer/produceer on Nash Bridges, The District, The Shield, Invasion, and NCIS. The sequel will follow LAPD Lieutenant Paul Cutler, who is transferred to a SWAT team in Detroit and “finds himself the target of a homicidal genius who is protected by government officials.” I’m guessing this is a direct-to-dvd sequel, but I’m not 100% positive. All we know is that production is set to begin in April 2010.”
I agree that this has to be straight to DVD film, because the plot sounds worse than the original.
Having Reed Steiner work on the screenplay does give me some hope. Although, its not much.
Do you want to see a S.W.A.T sequel?
