Bruce CampbellMichael Westen and Fiona Glennane might not be a part of it, but Sam Axe is still going to have a whole lot of company -- and even a date or two -- in the 'Burn Notice' prequel movie.

As production continues in Bogotá, Colombia a trio of new cast members have been announced. TVLine.com reports that 'Burn Notice' star Bruce Campbell, who plays Sam Axe, will be joined by Chandra West ('The Gates'), RonReaco Lee ('The Good Guys'), Kiele Sanchez ('The Glades') and John Diehl ('The Shield').

West will play Sam's new love interest, the "smart and sexy" Donna. Lee and Sanchez will play, respectively, a field medic and a humanitarian who run into trouble in Colombia. Diehl rounds out the cast as Rear Admiral Lawrence, a no-nonsense naval officer who will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

The prequel, which aims to flesh out Sam Axe's backstory, is set in late 2005. It begins after a faction of Colombian rebels makes trouble for the locally stationed military platoon, with Lieutenant Commander Axe being sent down to advise. As the mission unfolds, he begins to uncover the dark secrets of the area, learning the truth about sacrifice, deception and, ultimately, what's worth fighting for.

The two-hour TV movie is being directed by 'Burn Notice' star Jeffrey Donovan, and has been written by Matt Nix, creator of the TV series. Campbell, Donovan and Nix are also executive producers, together with Mikkel Bondesen. It's due to air on USA Network this spring.
