Swat S.W.A.T. Sequel Gets a Director

Maybe the driving force behind the decision to go ahead with the S.W.A.T. sequel, S.W.A.T.: Fire-Fight was the chemistry between original cast members Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Farrell, LL Cool J and Michelle Rodriguez, but my guess is it was the $120MM profit Sony/Columbia made on the movie (outside chance a powerful executive at Sony is obsessed with punctuation).

Movie Insider radioed over the news between emotional requests for backup.

The film is set to be directed by the appropriately-named Benny Boom (Next Day Air, 50 Cent: The Massacre – Special Edition) and the script was penned by Reed Schneider (NCIS, The Shield).  /Film also tells us that the movie follows:

“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.’”

To be fair, I’d probably do a lot worse for the promise of even a portion of $120MM.  No answer to the question of original cast members popping up, but production is set to begin in April of 2010.

No word on when or if  S.W.A.T.: Fire-Fight will hit theaters (it has to make it past the direct to DVD shelf first).
