DONALD SUTHERLAND AND WILLIAM BALDWIN ARE JOINED BY FRANCHISE NEWCOMER JOE ANDERSON IN THE EXPLOSIVE NEW CHAPTER OF BACKDRAFT
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Prepare to reignite the legacy of one of the most groundbreaking films of all time in the all-new action-drama, Backdraft 2 arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital via the digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE on May 14, 2019 from Universal 1440 Entertainment, the original content production arm of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, Imagine Entertainment and Raffaella Productions. Packed with stunning visuals and thrilling action, the adrenaline-filled sequel stars Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games franchise, Pride and Prejudice, Backdraft) and William Baldwin (“MacGyver,” “Hawaii Five-O,” Backdraft) reprising their roles as Ronald Bartel and Brian McCaffrey, and welcomes franchise newcomer Joe Anderson (“Outsiders,” “Hannibal”).
Fire investigator Sean McCaffrey (Anderson), son of the late Steven “Bull” McCaffrey, is now working at the same Chicago fire house along with his uncle Brian (Baldwin). When Sean is assigned to investigate a deadly fire, he and his partner Maggie soon realize that they are dealing with something much more than a routine fire. The clues they discover lead them down a treacherous path of arson, murder, and international terrorism. Sean must use his intuition, along with the help of infamous jailed arsonist Ronald Bartel (Sutherland), in a race to find out who is behind the fire and stop them from accomplishing their devious plans.
Exciting and gripping, the new installment of the Backdraft legacy marks the return of the franchise’s original filmmakers including producer Raffaella DeLaurentiis (Dragonheart franchise, What Happened to Monday, The Forbidden Kingdom), alongside writer and former firefighter Gregory Widen (Backdraft, OtherLife). Backdraft 2 comes from director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego (Apollo 18, The Hollow Point).
