A sequel to last year’s Navy SEAL actioner Act of Valor is moving forward at Relativity Media. Deadline reports that Relativity and the Bandito Brothers are once again teaming up for Act of Valor 2, which will focus on a team of elite SWAT officers. Directed by Bandito Brothers partners Mike “Mouse” McCoy and Scott Waugh, Act of Valor took a realistic approach to the military action genre, as the film cast active duty SEALs to portray the film’s characters. The result was a Call of Duty-esque feature that played more like a recruitment ad than a compelling movie, but the pic went on to gross over $80 million at the box office against a budget of just $12 million.
McCoy and Waugh will produce Act of Valor 2, with The Condemned writer/director Scott Wiper onboard to write and direct the sequel. No word on whether Wiper will also cast real-life SWAT members to star in the film.
