Stallone And Chan Teaming Up For Action Movie

Maybe it’s a case of better late than never, because Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone are teaming up for an action movie.

Scott Waugh, who helmed Need for Speed, is in negotiations to direct Ex-Baghdad, the action project in which Chan and Stallone will star.

The story centers on two ex-special forces soldiers who must escort a group of civilians along Baghdad’s “Highway of Death” to the safety of the Green Zone.

The project is budgeted at $80 million, which sources say is one of the highest for a Chinese production.  I hate to say it, but maybe it’s better that these two appear in this movie than in The Expendables 4.

The latter is just shitty equity at this point.

    It’s a dream! Ì hope for Jackie in expendables4 …

    I hope sly and Arnold come back and work with Avi Lerner and do expendables 4 right for us. So far all I’ve heard is bullshit. Other than jackie chan, I’d like to see christopher lambert, hulk hogan, dave Bautista, Vinnie Jones, Steven Seagal, Dwayne Johnson, Carl weathers, Kevin Costner, kurt Russell, Ron Perlman, stephen lang, Michael Biehn, Tommy Lee Jones, john Travolta, nicolas Cage, Ed Harris, John Malkovich, Willem Dafoe, Robert Patrick, Ray Liotta, etc.

      I think the words ‘doing it right’ do not compute with the name ‘Avi Lerner’. Lerner has probably already penciled in the use of a dis-used quarry to film it in, and some halfwits fresh out of college to complete the rest of the movie on their computers in their flats.

        I’m just saying Avi Lerner needs to let sly come back and have the freedom to do what he needs to do to fix up the franchise and give us a better sequel like with rocky 6 and rambo 4. Avi Lerner is also the reason other than Sly about why the third one was fucked up with pg13 and the young kids and all.

        i agree. he is not a serious film producer he just wants to make money fast and easy Sly did the right move in leaving the franchise

    Need for Speed sucked, this will too.

  • Duncan BROcleod

    Sounds promising as Waugh directed the very, very good “Act of Valor.” That had great action, great locations, and a lot of practical stunts. Come to think of it, it was a lot more Expendables than the Expendables movies actually were. :/

  • UpInHurr

    Hell Yes!!! This hypes me more than an Ex 4 could at this point. They both still have great presence and the movie could be amazing if given the right care to it. At this point since the Ex 4 thing isn’t working out, Sly could take the cast and just make other movies with them.

    PG13………..Stallone is a sellout and a fucking idiot for starring in that shitty movie called Guardians of the Galaxy 2 fuck him and his pg13 ego project

    • csc-60293

      the film was great and he gave up the r rated expendables 4 to be in more marvel films. Thats awesome !!!
