It looks like Sylvester Stallone is going to have another shot at the comedy genre in the upcoming action comedy Cold Warriors. The movie is set to be a spy movie set somewhere in Europe. Here is what Tracking-Board has to say:
Sylvester Stallone will star in Nu Image/Millennium Films’ COLD WARRIORS. Written by Todd Berger, the film follows a video game nerd who travels to Europe with his mother’s boring husband, only to discover that his step-father is an ex-CIA agent who has been reactivated to complete an old mission. Robin Schorr is producing through Schorr Pictures, and Christine Crow is overseeing the project for Nu Image/Millennium.
I’m guessing Stallone will wind down his action career a lot more now, or at least the intensity of it. I’d like to see Stallone follow a path that the likes of Gene Hackman and Clint Eastwood followed in the 1990s as they passed retirement, with thrillers such as Absolute Power or movies of a similar vein. Comedy tends not to work well with him, so we’ll see how this one plays out…
