Relativity Media and the Bandito Brothers are teaming up again for a sequel to the 2012 hit Act of Valor. Scott Wiper (The Condemned, The Marine 3: Homefront) has signed on to write and direct the follow-up, which will focus on a unit of S.W.A.T. officers. No further story details were released.
Act of Valor 2 moves forward at Relatively Media
The first Act of Valor starred active-duty Navy S.E.A.L. members in a fictionalized account of a real operation. It isn't known if the plan is to bring in actual S.W.A.T. team members to star in this follow-up, but given the success of the original movie, that will likely be the case. Directed by two of the eight Bandito Brothers partners Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh (Need for Speed), Act of Valor took in $81 million worldwide from just a $12 million production budget.
We reported in September that Relativity is developing a TV series based on the original movie, but that is still in the early stages of development.
Act of Valor was released February 24th, 2012 and stars Alexander Asefa, Drea Castro, Jason Cottle, Aurelius DiBarsanti, Timothy Gibbs, Carla Jimenez, Marc Margulies, Dimiter Marinov. The film is directed by Mike McCoy, Scott Waugh.
