Comic-Con 2011: 'Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe' Director Jeffrey Donovan Breaks Down During Filming (Video)

During Thursday's Comic-Con panel, Bruce Campbell and Matt Nix opened up about the star's directing ways -- and the real story behind the Colombia shoot.

Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan directed the prequel telepic The Fall of Sam Axe, starring Bruce Campbell. But things on-set weren't the prettiest between Donovan and Campbell during the shoot.

During Thursday's Burn Notice panel at Comic-Con in Ballroom 20, Campbell didn't hold anything back, revealing how Donovan put himself on a list of directors for the telepic and creator Matt Nix recalling a conversation between he and Donovan about how to incorporate a donkey into the story.

Director Aaron Ginsburg was tasked to tell the real story behind the filming of The Fall of Sam Axe and this is just a teaser that was shown at Comic-Con of what he uncovered. (The full mockumentary is available on the DVD, in stores Tuesday.)
