The series was first announced in September 2012, when Relativity Media and the Bandito Brothers production company revealed they were developing the movie for the small screen. National Geographic Channel gave the series a green light in October, although creative differences reportedly arose between Relativity and the Bandito Brothers.

The network had a formalized deal in place with Relativity, but the studio had no formal agreement with the Bandito Brothers. In the months that followed, the network, studio and production company all had differing ideas of how the show should be crafted. A deal was never reached with the Bandito Brothers, causing the project to be scrapped.

‘Act of Valor 2’ Will Center on S.W.A.T. Team Officers Instead of Marines

Relativity Media and the Bandito Brothers are teaming up again for a sequel to the 2012 hit Act of Valor. Scott Wiper (The Condemned, The Marine 3: Homefront) has signed on to write and direct the follow-up, which will focus on a unit of S.W.A.T. officers. No further story details were released.

The first Act of Valor starred active-duty Navy S.E.A.L. members in a fictionalized account of a real operation. It isn't known if the plan is to bring in actual S.W.A.T. team members to star in this follow-up, but given the success of the original movie, that will likely be the case. Directed by two of the eight Bandito Brothers partners Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh (Need for Speed), Act of Valor took in $81 million worldwide from just a $12 million production budget.

Director Scott Waugh discusses Act of Valor, available on Blu-ray and DVD June 5

I was recently invited to take part in a unique press event for Act of Valor, which debuts on Blu-ray and DVD June 5. I was told we would be heading to San Diego to participate in a SEALFit workout, which is essentially a much more intense version of crossfit. I figured it would be a simple demonstration. It was not, and frankly, I'm surprised I survived, but I'm definitely glad I did it.
