Whether as a professional boxer “Rocky”, Vietnam veteran “Rambo” or in his latest action series “The Expendables”, one thing is for sure: Sylvester Stallone has already made movie history with his many action roles. And this is exactly the story that the 68-year-old now wants to film. As announced by his mother, Sylvester Stallone is planning his own biopic.
It has been no secret for years that the Hollywood Dream Factory only allows the very old to have their own biopic. Sylvester Stallone seems to be one of these great legends in the movie business. Instead of waiting for a producer to come up with the idea of filming the action star’s life, the actor simply takes the project into his own hands: Sylvester Stallone plans to start shooting very soon.
In any case, Sylvester Stallone does not seem to have thought about retirement. In an interview with the tabloid “The Sun”, his mother Jackie revealed how difficult it is for her son to find a date for the biopic. “Sylvester will film his life story, his own biography. He will also film ‘Rambo V’ and travel to Budapest to kick off ‘The Expendables 4’, so he will shoot his biopic sometime in between, ”said the proud mother, revealing Sylvester Stallone’s plans.
Sylvester Stallone: Does he play himself?
However, the lady was unable to get any further details on Sylvester Stallone’s new big project. So fans of the action veteran are asking themselves numerous questions: Will the 68-year-old be played in his biopic, or will he just pull the strings behind the camera? And when will the story of his life finally appear on the big screen? All of these questions will likely remain open for a while: Sylvester Stallone is silent about the plans for the film.
Sylvester Stallone’s eventful life certainly offers many starting points for his own film. In any case, it will be interesting to see how the movie legend imagines this very personal project. Does Sylvester Stallone appear in front of the camera or does a younger actor have the pleasure of slipping into the role of the action star?
