Ken Kennedy will be starring in a made-for-DVD film titled Behind Enemy Lines 3: Columbia. The film is being produced by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and is the third installment of the Behind Enemy Lines franchise.
The franchise launched in a 2001 theatrical film that starred Owen Wilson. Behind Enemy Lines 2: Axis of Evil was the second made-for-DVD title for the action franchise and was released in 2006. WWE has partnered with Fox for the third installment and hope to release one theatrical and four direct-to-DVD titles each year.
Development for the latest title began several months ago, but was given a slated release date of 2009 depending on the outcome of the Writers Guild of America strike.
Along with Ken Kennedy (real name Ken Anderson), Behind Enemy Lines 3 stars Joe Manganiello, Keith David, Channon Roe, Yancey Arias, Jennice Fuentes and Chris Jonhson. Tim Matheson will direct the project, which is being shot on location in Puerto Rico. Jeff Freilich is producing.
The title will follow Navy SEALS stranded in enemy territory in Columbia.
