Latest on S.W.A.T and Sniper sequels

Some news on a couple of direct-to-dvd sequels heading our way either later this year, or early next…

S.W.A.T : Fire Fight

Robert Patrick, Carly Pope (“24″), Gabriel Macht (“The Spirit”) and Giancarlo Esposito (TVs “Breaking Bad”) are currently filming “S.W.A.T : Fire Fight”, a Benny Boom-directed follow-up to the Colin Farrell/Samuel J.Jackson flick from a couple of years back. Here’s the synopsis : Transferred to Detroit to put a local SWAT team through a training regimen, LAPD Lieutenant Paul Cutler finds himself the target of a homicidal genius who is protected by government officials.

Sniper : Reloaded

Bill Zane returns to the “Sniper” franchise (Zane starred in the original film, opposite Tom Berenger). This time, Zane’s Richard Miller is out to help Brandon Beckett, son of Thomas Beckett (Berenger’s character from the first few “Sniper” movies), get out of enemy territory. Beckett, however, is intent on staying – he wants to find the hostile Sniper who killed most of his platoon. Richard Sammel (“Inglurious Basterds”), Chad Collins (“Lake Placid 2″) and Annabel Wright (TVs “Crisis Control”) co-star. Claudio Fah (“Hollow Man II”) directs.
