Stallone in a Sequel to Cliffhanger?


Man, the rumors lately are getting out of control. First, we have Pacino as a possible Bond villain, and now we've got a fresh rumor that Sylvester Stallone is reprising his role as Gabe Walker from the 1993 hit Cliffhanger in a sequel supposedly called Cliffhanger 2: The Dam.

PR-Inside reported the story (who the heck are they?), but they cite no sources and don't attempt to explain where they got their information. That's the kind of journalism I like to see. So spread the word, kids - Stallone could be continuing his comeback streak with another sequel to a classic action film. If it's as good as Rocky Balboa and Rambo were, then I'm absolutely down with this, but that title makes it seem a little far fetched. What's he gonna do? Rapel down the Hoover Dam and plug a hole with his bicep while he waits for help?

if he puts his bicep in a hole, then someone better fall on a landmine.

How absolutely frustrating. What Stallone really needs to do is develop a new concept and show everyone the depth and complexity he's capable of. The man has the talent to win an Academy Award for any of his disciplines (acting, screenwriting, directing) but he always seems so ready to cash them in for a quick buck that I don't know if it will ever happen. I swear if he had made several different choices early on in his career, we'd all see him and his legacy in a completely different light.

I think he is a great writer/director/actor. I mean one of his first films won Best Picture (Rocky) and I don't think he's making these films to make a quick buck, but more so trying not to make movies just for him. he gives the people what they want, and the people called for a new Rocky and a new Rambo. Maybe he really does like these characters, and that's his legacy...

Stallone really needs to stop making sequels to movies he already made decades ago. He stumbled over Rocky and anyone can play Rambo in those killfest gigs.
