Donovan To Direct Burn Notice Prequel

Series lead Jeffrey Donovan may not appear in the Burn Notice spin-off movie prequel centering around Bruce Campbell’s Sam Axe, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be involved – He’s been chosen to direct it.

Donovan, who’s previously directed an episode of the regular Burn Notice series this year, will also act as executive producer for the movie alongside Campbell and series creator Matt Nix, who’ll write the movie. Production is expected to start soon, with the final product premiering on USA in Spring 2011.

    Bruce Campbell deserves his own Sam Axe series.

    Burn Notice: The Legend of Chuck Finley

  • Bill Reed

    I feel like this is going to have a man named Chuck Finley sacrifice himself for Sam’s benefit; a scene with a chainsaw; and a cameo by a certain Michael Weston.

    Bring it on.

    Agree with Bill S., the few times I’ve caught this show I’ve really enjoyed Bruce’s character. Thinks how much I miss Jack of All Trades…
