Behind Enemy Lines Getting TV Reboot – ManlyMovie

Behind Enemy Lines Getting TV Reboot

FOX is rebooting Behind Enemy Lines for the small screen, according to Variety.

Loosely based on the film, Fox’s “Behind Enemy Lines” the TV series is described as a “military soap thriller” wherein a group of U.S. soldiers find themselves trapped behind enemy lines. The “distinctly patriotic series” is a multi-perspective narrative that closely follows our soldiers on the ground, and the officers and service men and women on a nearby aircraft carrier, along with intelligence officers in D.C., as they attempt to bring our heroes home safely and under the radar.

A pilot has been ordered, with McG signed on to direct.  To me the original movie is not a ‘guilty pleasure’ but merely a ‘pleasure’.  The F-18 shoot down was pretty cool…

    “Behind Enemy Lines” is a cool action flick. It features one of the last performances by iconic Gene Hackman and Owen Wilson was very effective as the lead. I recommend it to anyone that hasn’t seen it.

    It was the directorial debut of John Moore and I thought he had promised. He directed the remake of “Flight of the Phoenix” which I thought was good as well. But then he went on to make turds like “Max Payne” and “A Good Day to Die Hard My Ass”
