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.

Love the presequel idea. I'd like to see a new one each spring on Fiona, Mike as a child&teen with family, Mike as a spy, & Jesse if he's still there. As Fiona would say 'Sounds like fun!' Penny


OMFG!!! Super excited I love Bruce and think he is great as Sam.


I'm Sure Michael Will Make An Appearence. If you notice it says that it is Sam's final CIA Mission, so maybe it's where he meets Michael for the first time.


Would have preferred a Michael only prequel before he got burned

Michael: When I caught Simon he laughed. He said it was just a matter of time until I was just like him.
Madeline [comforting Michael]: He's wrong honey, that isn't the son I raised.

You know what your problem is Brennan, other than this knife in your chest? You spend so much time thinking 10 moves ahead; you don't see the move right in front of you.
