Here’s an action packed dream team matchup as Deadline is reporting that action icon and Mr. BAYHEM himself Michael Bay are teaming up for a new dystopian action-thriller titled Little America. Stallone is said to be playing a former Army Ranger on a desperate mission to find a girl in a world that has gone mad.
Per Deadline: Set in a dystopian future where America has become bankrupt and turned into a war zone, Sly will play a former Army Ranger hired by an Asian billionaire to find his daughter.
With the highly skilled sister of the missing woman along for the ride, Sly’s Ranger must navigate the dark underbelly of Little America, a walled-off city within a city in Hong Kong where many Americans have fled.
It is said that the film will resemble Kurt Russell’s iconic film Escape From New York which has me intrigued and it’s great to see that Stallone is still flexing his action muscles even in his 70’s.
Universal won the bidding war for the film which was penned by Rowan Athale (Strange But True). Filming will commence this summer after Sly films his dark Superhero tale The Samaritan. Bay will executive produce the film under his Platinum Dunes production banner.
Hopefully Stallone will be able to make one more Expendables film which is said to feature Jason Statham in the lead with Stallone taking a backseat. Only time will tell on that project.
Keep it locked and loaded right here Stallone fans for more to come!
