Stallone Denies Any Involvement in Female Expendables Spinoff

14 July 2016 6:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in February 2014, we reported that director Robert Luketic had come aboard to direct an all-female Expendables spinoff entitled ExpendaBelles, but that was the last we had heard about the project. That report revealed that The Expendables star Sylvester Stallone will produce this action-thriller alongside Kevin King Templeton, but it seems that isn't the case anymore. Sylvester Stallone recently clarified that he has no involvement whatsoever in this project.

The actor reportedly reached out to Deadline to clear up "erroneous reports" that he is involved with the project, telling the site that he isn't participating in the film in any way. While we haven't reported on this project since Robert Luketic took over as director, Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables co-star Randy Couture recently teased in an interview with New York Daily News that this ExpendaBelles movie may move forward ahead of The Expendables 4. Here's what Randy Couture »

Sly Stallone Denies Involvement In Female ‘Expendables’ Spinoff

12 July 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

While it remains to be seen whether he will take part in any more installments of The Expendables action franchise, Sylvester Stallone has tired of erroneous media reports cropping up around the world that he is in the center of The Expendabelles, a spinoff film that will team a group of female operatives. Stallone wants it known that he isn’t in any way participating in an all-female cast offshoot of Expendables and that he has absolutely no future plans to be associated… »

Mickey Rourke’s Face

12 July 2016 6:48 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's Sin City (2005) is playing on Mubi June 18 - July 17, 2016 in the United States. Sin CityWhat happens when a performer’s face changes? This very question animated a bewildering piece by Owen Gleiberman last month in Variety, wherein Gleiberman—a man—pondered whether Renée Zellweger’s slightly aged, maybe plastic surgery-tinkered visage made her an entirely different performer. He sustained this mediation on the basis of a whopping three-minute trailer for Bridget Jones’ sBaby, hoarily declaring his good intentions to combat Hollywood’s sexist machinations at his piece’s onset. Yet, in spite of this pretense, his approach exhibited an astonishing lack of stringency, ultimately scrutinizing Zellweger along the same sexist lines he claimed to bemoan. Like others, I find this storied practice of male critics inspecting women’s faces pretty odious. If male critics have gotten craftier than such forefathers as John Simon (who, »

Mechanic: Resurrection Trailer Has Statham on a Mission to Kill

23 June 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2011, Jason Statham starred in the action remake The Mechanic, based on a 1970s Charles Bronson classic. The remake didn't exactly set the box office on fire, earning just $29.1 million domestically and $62 million worldwide, from a $40 million budget. Now that the franchise has shifted to Lionsgate, the studio is pulling out all the stops with the action-packed sequel Mechanic: Resurrection, which you can see in the first trailer.

Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) returns as the Mechanic in the sequel to the 2011 action thriller. When the deceitful actions of a cunning but beautiful woman (Jessica Alba) force him to return to the life he left behind, Bishop's life is once again in danger as he has to complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world, or he faces being executed himself. The movie was shot on location in Bangkok, Thailand.

X-Force Movie Should Be R-Rated Says Producer

16 May 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It didn't take long after the massive success of 20th Century Fox's R-rated adventure Deadpool for rumors to surface about future superhero movies aiming for an R rating. Just last week, it was confirmed that Wolverine 3 has begun shooting, and it will be R-rated. But many feel that another X-Men spinoff the studio is developing, X-Force, should get an R rating as well. As it turns out, producer Simon Kinberg feels just the same way, teasing in a recent interview that the studio would be open to an R-rated X-Force.

X-Force has been in development since 2013, when Kick-Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow came aboard to write the screenplay. While we haven't heard much on the development of this project since then, Deadpool's post-credit sequence teased that X-Force leader Cable will be introduced in the upcoming sequel Deadpool 2, with actors such as Stephen Lang (Avatar) and Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables »

Code Of Honor Review

8 May 2016 9:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, action cinema was largely defined by a certain level of machismo. The typical action heroes were muscle-bound, seemingly invincible and known for their ability to dispatch one-dimensional villains with an endless supply of cheesy one-liners. The work of Arnold Schwarzenegger perhaps best exemplifies this particular style of filmmaking, but other stars like Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal played in that very same sandbox and became international stars as a result.

Today’s most popular action films have embraced a very different approach, wherein the heroes are far more fallible and human and the violence is more grounded and visceral. Think the Bourne films or Daniel Craig’s James Bond. In recent years, the old-school style of action has largely been relegated to direct-to-dvd projects and nostalgia trips like Stallone’s The Expendables franchise. However, the new Seagal thriller, Code of Honor, »

Sylvester Stallone To Make TV Debut With New Mafia Series Omerta

28 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Action veteran Sylvester Stallone is primed to make his TV debut with Omerta, the new mafia drama in the works by Antoine Fuqua.

Word comes by way of The Hollywood Reporter, noting that Fuqua’s crime series will be adapted from Mario Puzo’s original novels, weaving a story involving a family empire from The Godfather to The Last Don. Stallone will reportedly take point as the patriarch ruling over said organization, though considering that no networks are attached at the time of writing, there’s still much work to be done before Fuqua’s project can enter production in earnest.

What is exciting, however, is the fact that Omerta represents Stallone’s first foray into serialized television. Barring turns in The Expendables franchise – an unashamed cash cow if ever there was one – the actor is beginning to shift gears to deliver powerful, award-worthy performances. It was a change of »
