    Schwarzenegger won't make The Expendables 4 without Stallone

    Hot on the heels of Sylvester Stallone’s shock departure from the planned fourth instalment in ‘The Expendables’ series, the Italian Stallion’s noted co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared that he will not return to the franchise without Stallone on board. The revelation that Stallone was quitting ‘The Expendables 4’ came as quite a surprise, given the 70-year old veteran of the ‘Rocky’ and ‘Rambo’ franchises was very much the figurehead of the ageing action hero ensemble series.

    Aside from a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in a sizzle reel shown at Comic-Con last summer, Sylvester Stallone’s role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been shrouded in mystery. Directed James Gunn swung by the Yahoo Studios this week for a Facebook Live session to talk about both his new film The Belko Experiment (in theaters now) and the Guardians sequel (out May 5), and he dropped some tantalizing tidbits about Stallone’s top-secret role. “Look for clues and you will find out the character Sylvester Stallone plays.

    6 long-delayed action sequels that were worth the wait

    This Friday, 20 January, sees the release of ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage,’ third film in the extreme sports spy series, and the first time Vin Diesel has played the title role since the 2002 original (Ice Cube took over for the 2005 sequel, and will also appear in the new one). Diesel is of course no stranger to sequels, having reprised ‘Pitch Black’ anti-hero Riddick twice, and most famously his ‘Fast & Furious’ role Dominic Toretto on six occasions (including the upcoming ‘Fast & Furious 8,’ and his brief cameo in third film ‘Tokyo Drift’). A 12 year gap between movies – and a 15 year gap between performances for the leading man – is substantial, but Diesel certainly isn’t the only action star to return to a signature role after upwards of a decade.

    Sylvester Stallone contemplating government job offer from Donald Trump

    Reports claim that US President-elect Donald Trump has offered Sylvester Stallone a top arts-based role in his cabinet. Trump is said to have offered the 70-year old actor, writer and director a high-ranking role – likely chairman – with federal agency the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), which provides support, promotion and funding to creative arts ventures in the US. If Stallone accepts the offer, he would not be the first showbiz figure to join the Trump administration, as other positions have already been given to movie producer Steven Mnuchin and Linda McMahon, formerly of WWE.

Sly simply started running as a crew, including director John G, Avildsen, followed him and shot him in action. Burgess Meredith only got the part of hard-faced trainer Mickey because all the other applicants up for the role felt so insulted that Stallone had asked them to read for it that they rejected it.
