Sylvester Stallone to Star in Dark Superhero Movie SAMARITAN for MGM

Sylvester Stallone to Star Dark Superhero Movie SAMARITAN for MGM
Following the release of his latest Rambo flick, Sylvester Stallone has signed on to star in and produce the upcoming superhero movie "Samaritan". Directed by Julius Avery ("Overlord") from a screenplay by Bragi F. Schut ("Escape Room"), the film is said to be an alternate take on the superhero genre, and it will be developed at MGM. Schut will also serve as an executive producer.

Based on Schut's own original idea, the film follows a boy who embarks on a quest to discover if an old, mythic superhero is still alive after he vanished 20 years earlier following a tragic event. Production is expected to begin early next year, and the release date has been set for November 20, 2020.

Avery had this to say about the project: "Sly is a hero of mine, I’m incredibly thrilled to be working with such an iconic actor on this very special project with Balboa Productions and MGM".

Stallone is also set to direct and star in the biopic "Tough as They Come" based on Marcus Brotherton and Travis Mills's books, and he will also star in Brad Furman's crime biopic "Scarpa" penned by "Goodfellas" and "Casino" scribe Nicholas Pileggi.
