Stallone Set to Play Mob Boss in ‘Omerta’

We were wondering what was next for Sylvester Stallone and now we know; in a rather nice piece of news; according to Deadline: In a blockbuster TV package that will come to networks shortly looking for a series commitment, The Weinstein Company is behind an adaptation of Omerta with Sylvester Stallone to play the lead role of mob boss Raymonde Aprile, the last great American Don and his anointed successor. The Magnificent Seven‘s Antoine Fuqua is directing.

This is based on the final novel by The Godfather author Mario Puzo, and I wanted to get out in front of it because it’s coming together quickly. A pilot script and a bible are already in place by Justin Herber and Adam Hoff, and a writers room is quickly being assembled.

A showrunner and a female lead actress will be in place shortly. The networks will soon have their shot at it, with the expectation one will bite for a full series commitment.

I read the book Omerta a few years ago and it was excellent so I’m really excited for this.

Anyone Remember The Ninja Wars (1982)?

There are no words for how awesomely bonkers this movie is; it’s like a surreal dream with lashings of over the top bloodshed and hilariously unconvincing decapitations. I love it! The story is as follows: A fortuneteller pro...
