Are these two part of the "young tech savvy team" that we've heard rumours of? Previously Stallone had tweeted "RR VS GC?" which presumably meant Ronda Rousey vs Gina Carano. Looks like RR won that round unless Stallone decides to get both for EX3.
"Deadline broke the news of this project. According to them, when Coogler signed with his agency, he said this movie was his dream project. They loved the idea and got him in touch with Stallone. He also loved it. Now the actor will return and produce, along with several other people involved in the original films.
So while it may sound like this is some simple cash grab at a well-known franchise, it’s actually more of a passion project from a huge fan.
The story will reportedly start with Jordan’s title character raised in the upper class, thanks to the millions made by his grandfather. His parents don’t want him to fight, but, he decides to anyway and seeks out Balboa, who has long since retired. He’ll then help him train and get into the fight game."
What do you think, will you be glad to see Rocky return or did you prefer his heart felt final sendoff at the end of Rocky Balboa?
"Abigail Breslin is joining Arnold Schwarzenegger in the world of the undead.
The actress is in talks to star opposite Schwarzenegger in the zombie film Maggie, based on a Black List script from John Scott 3 about a father (Schwarzenegger) whose daughter, Maggie (Breslin), is infected by a walking-dead virus that has spread across the country. Commercial director Henry Hobson will helm Maggie, and production will start in the fall. Schwarzenegger is producing the film alongside Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, Matt Baer, Trevor Kaufman, Colin Bates and Joey Tufaro."
