Bruce Campbell Previews Burn Notice Prequel Movie

at . Comments

A Burn Notice movie is coming to USA this spring.

The film, which will be directed by star Jeffrey Donovan, will serve as a unique kind of prequel, providing background on Bruce Campbell's Same Axe.

The actor tells EW the two-hour special will center around Sam’s final CIA mission in the mountains of Colombia.

Sam Investigates

“[Sam] sees some events go down that change the initial plan, and he takes matters into his own hands at great risk to himself and others with a small group of misfits to try to right a bad situation,” Campbell says. “It’s a David and Goliath thing.”

Why should fans watch?

“[People] should watch it because that’s the only way they’re going to get the whole [season 5] story,” Campbell says. “There is possibly a character and story elements that will linger forward — and not in a good way. Something from Sam’s past might come back to haunt him.”

Good enough for us. We're in.

Burn Notice Quotes

Fiona: So you and Jesse are poking Barrett with a stick. Why does the term "sitting ducks" come to mind?
Michael: Jesse and I are pretty well armed ducks.

Sam: Hey, look who's not in jail.
Pearce: Well, I just got an ear full from Langley about your little stunt. What the hell were you thinking threatening an FBI agent like that?
Michael: I didn't threatening him. I asked him questions with a gun in my hand. A gun I have the right to legally carry.
