I'm not going to lie. I wouldn't do that to you. And I certainly would not do it in the opening paragraph, let alone this whole story. I will not sit here and tell you a boldface untrue statement. I will not tell you that I don't love that movie SWAT. Because that would simply be untrue. Guilty pleasure it may be...but love it I do.

It would seem that I am not alone, as uber-producer Neal Moritz and Columbia Pictures feel that the first SWAT did not say all that it needed to say. Thus, giving way to a sequel currently in the works. SWAT: FIRE FIGHT will be directed by Benny Boom (NEXT DAY AIR) with a script from Reed Steiner (TV's THE SHIELD, NCIS). Production will begin in April of this year. No word yet on whether the film will be theatrical or a direct-to-DVD release. Just as I am not a liar, I am not a gambling man, but if I was I'd have to put my money on the latter.

Check out the film's synopsis after the jump!

SWAT: FIRE FIGHT will follow LAPD Lieutenant Paul Cutler to Detroit as he is relocated in order to help train the city's local SWAT team. Once there, Cutler finds himself the "target of a homicidal genius who is protected by government officials."

2003's SWAT starred Colin Farrell, Samuel L. Jackson, LL Cool J, Michelle Rodriguez, and some guy no one had quite heard of yet named Jeremy Renner.
