'Burn Notice' prequel movie announced
A "Burn Notice" prequel movie announcement starring fan-favorite Bruce Campbell was big news at the USA series panel, which kicked things off on the television side at Comic-Con on Thursday in Ballroom 20.
The prequel will be an action-adventure story set before the start of "Burn Notice" that follows Sam on a mission in Latin America. USA and Fox TV Studios will partner on the production, with filming likely to take place in Latin America between "Burn Notice" Seasons 4 and 5.
Moderated by Chris Vance, who played the evil Gilroy on the sexy spy series, the panel, which included Campbell, series creator Matt Nix, exec producer Alfredo Barrios and multihyphenate Tim Matheson, might as well have been the Bruce Campbell show as he continued his streak from last year of paying audience members who complimented him.
On a serious note, Nix and Barrios shared that what the writers put in the script is often played out in the writers room first.
"We roleplay a fair amount in the room," Barrios shared. "And Matt's a master of accents [It was there that] Gilroy became a guy with a British accent."
"We can't really, can you darling?," Nix said in an English accent when discussing how one can or cannot tell when a Brit is gay, ribbing Vance a little in the process.
"If we can act it out in the room, then we can write it," Nix said.
This season, with the addition of series regular Coby Bell, there will be many "more episodes where Sam and Fiona are taking the lead [on the case]," Nix said.
Campbell jumped in, revealing a future dilemma Fiona (played by Gabrielle Anwar) would find herself this year.
"There is an episode where Fiona gets kidnapped," Campbell said. "Never kidnap Fiona. She's a little shit!"
