    I don't know about that but I watched "Firestorm" last night.Getting past the obvious Hollywood stuff(Howie jumping without his brush shield on and the girl later on surviving the cliff jump when his extra chute(where was it carried anyway?)deployed,it looked like Axe had been reincarnated when it turned out Scott Glenn started that fire for a developer.
    How would they make arson investigation exciting?I think a real department would be upset with a guy transferring in and out of houses all the time to get away from his brother.

    According to IMDB.com and commingsoon.net. Neither have anything listed or in planning....

    Ha ha.

    Seriously, I thought I heard sometime within that past year that there could be a Backdraft 2 within the next 2-3 years.
    And I also heard that when they were writing Ladder 49 that it was originally supposed to be Backdraft 2. I'm not sure why they decided against it, though,

    That's highly doubtful.

    Do you really think people spent long hours writing about the modern day adventures of Brian McCaffrey -- now stuck in both his father's & his brother's shadows -- and his days of working alongside Shadow... And then, once they had the story together, they decided to ditch it instead for the tale of a firefighter's advancement from rookie to experienced jake in Baltimore City? I don't see a lot of simularities between the Ladder 49 & the Backdraft concepts. Besides, both movies were written & directed by different people.

    I read somewhere that Ron Howard wasn't going to produce anymore firefighting movies after he released BACKDRAFT. I'll have to see if I can find the article, this was about a year or so I seen this.

    So maybe a rumor started and Ron Howard came out and said... Nope No more...??? Maybe that's what I'm thinking of hearing about a sequal.

    Backdraft 2 will be set in preset day times where a Chicago firefighter is intentionaly setting fires to show that the alderman's were killing firefighters and making money by switching their 3/4's out with faulty gear.


    oh man.... i'm going to hell for that one

    yup.. and Steve Baldwin will star in the role the lead investigator, Robert Deniro will star as the Cheif of the CFD, and our very own ChicagoFF will make a cameo appearance as the guy who put two and two together and got the ball rolling!

    Backdraft 2?
    I hope not.

    I tried to search for any word about Backdraft 2. Came up negative for a movie, but for those of you who enjoy hot stuff:


    Ingredients For BACKDRAFT 2:

    10 - whole fresh tomatoes
    1- large can of diced tomatoes
    2-cloves of garlic
    2- jalapeno peppers
    2- chili peppers
    3 -tablespoons of sugar
    1 -whole white onion
    4-tablespoons of xxx-HOT horseradish!
    a shake or two of onion powder.


    Directions:
    Combine everything in a large pot and stir for a while, boil on the stove for about 5 minutes. Adding the horseradish brings out the distinct flavor that goes great in a salsa mix!

    After boiling, shut off the heat and let sit until it is cool enough to eat. The real flavor will not be revealed until about 10 minutes of cooling time.




    Too hot for me...

    Default What???

    BAckdraft is a classic. I don't know about anyone else but that movie is what inspired be to become a firefighter. I first saw the movie when I was 5 years old and I was hooked into the Fire Service ever since.

    No more firefighting movies or shows, PLEASE! They always make us look like un-educated, knuckle-draggin, unprofessional drunk frats boys.

    Leave the camera in the EMS vans. The only time the fire service needs to get press is on the 11 o'clock news.

    I think we have had our fill. Thank you.

    the guy who put two and two together
    NOOOOOOOOOO.

    A movie about Firefighters wearing two hoods and two sets of pants AND stopping for green lights would kill me.

    Bloody boring that movie would be.

    Talking Backdraft 2

    I'll opt for a 2nd "Mother, Jugs and Speed"! Now there was a fun movie.

    Yeah but Jugg's Juggs are heading south since the 70's -

    There can be no sequel to Back-Draft {Thank-God} the first one was bad enough and in all honesty was pretty bad. Brian McAffery's Brother Died , Dennis Quaid {Axe} Was the Fire Setter - He Died too and the mastermind behind it all - Alderman Swayzack was exposed - How do you build a sequel off of that ?
