Follow-up to Hackman/Wilson film in the works
According to his official site, Nicholas Gonzalez, best remembered as Marisa’s boy-toy D.J on “The OC”, will fill the void of Gene Hackman and Owen Wilson in a sequel to the entertaining action rattler “Behind Enemy Lines” (2001).
The sequel, which centers around a North Korean nuclear conflict, stars Gonzalez as U.S Navy SEALS Lieutenant, Robert James. Production commenced in Bulgaria in October.
Peter Coyote (“Commander-In-Chief”) also has a role, and David Keith (“Daredevil”) reprises his role as Master Chief Tom O’Malley from the first film.
In “Behind Enemy Lines”, Owen Wilson played a Navy navigator who is shot down over enemy territory and is ruthlessly pursued by a secret police enforcer and the opposing troops. Meanwhile his commanding officer (Hackman) goes against orders in an attempt to rescue him.
