It's utterly amazing to us how Sylvester Stallone still continues to kick an incredible amount of ass given his age, but we're happy he's still doing his thing. Next up for Sly is an adaptation of a book that will pit him against more than just the cold in the Arctic Circle.
While doing his press rounds for this weekend's explosive The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone has been asked a myriad of questions, but finally someone has gotten him to talk about Poe, which is a feature film look at everyone's favorite horror scribe.
San Diego Comic-Con 2010 - Expendables: Sylvester Stallone Lifetime Achievement Award / Tron: Inside Flynn's Arcade
While covering the San Diego Comic-Con 2010, no matter where we looked or where we went, there was cool stuff happening. Sure, it's a gargantuan amount of work, but no matter how you slice it, every day is different and exciting.
If you were amongst the people rendered giddy by the news a few weeks back that Sylvester Stallone was readying a fifth Rambo movie that would have him on a savage hunt in search of a genetically engineered predatory monster (story here), Stallone still intends to tackle that monster but no longer with the character of John Rambo.
Movies based on stories by Edgar Allan Poe are nothing new. Movies about the short life of the macabre writer, however, are in shorter supply. One of Edgar Allan Poe's biggest fans is pushing to get a biopic about the famed writer into production. Because when you think Edgar Allan Poe, you think... Sylvester Stallone?
We live in strange times. Sylvester Stallone wants to do another Rambo sequel. No surprise there. Now he's talking about making it PG-13, which is nearly impossible to fathom, especially after the all-out bloodbath that was last year's Rambo. But even more perplexing is that it looks to be heading into the direction of sci-fi action horror with John Rambo tracking a genetically engineered monster run amok. We're a long way removed from First Blood now.
