Sylvesters Stallone just does not seem to get older. The 73-year-old has just talked about a possible Rocky sequel, as already the next film with him in the lead role is confirmed. In Samaritan, he plays an aging superhero. Cinemas are currently running Rambo 5: Last Blood with Stallone in the lead role. However, since the film is the conclusion of the series, many thought that Sylvester Stallone would gradually retire. In the repertoire of the actor and his age, this would be understandable. But he still does not want to stop for a long time. So the next movie is confirmed with the Hollywood star. In it he not only plays one of the main roles, but is also still working as a producer. Samaritan is the name of the new project and meanwhile a director has been found who stages the film.
In Samaritan, a boy goes in search of a superhero who disappeared without a trace 20 years ago under mysterious circumstances. This superhero is played by Sylvester Stallone. The science fiction thriller is staged by Julius Avery, who made his directorial debut in 2018 with Operation Overlord. The director looks forward to working with such a famous actor and Sylvester Stallone is the perfect choice for the role.
The film is produced by the companies MGM and Balboa Production. The latter is the company of Syvester Stallone, which means that the actor will also contribute behind the camera to the project. When Samaritan will come to the cinemas is still unclear. Shooting is scheduled to start in early 2020, which will make Samaritan a realistic launch date from late 2020 to early 2021.
