Homefront_D16_5393.CR2

In most respects, Gary Fleder‘s Homefront sounds like a pretty typical action thriller. Jason Statham stars as a retired DEA agent, who moves to a small, quiet town for the sake of his young daughter. Once there, however, he quickly gets entangled with the local villain, a drug lord played by… James Franco. Wait, what?

It’s an oddball combination for sure, but it’s also an effective one in that it got our attention right away. In addition to those two, Kate Bosworth, Winona Ryder, and Rachelle Lefevre also star. Oh, and Sylvester Stallone wrote the script based on book by Chuck Logan. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Rambo

One of Sylvester Stallone‘s signature film series, Rambo, is trotting down the path to television, and Sly is in talks to consult and potentially star. Entertainment One and Nu Image, the company with which Stallone has worked on The Expendables films, will partner to develop and produce a TV series based on the character.

The Expendables 2 (header)

The Expendables 2 came out a year ago and, since then, rumors about its sequel have popped up almost weekly. Many actors have been rumored, and some confirmed: Cage, Seagal, Snipes, Gibson, Ford, you name it.

Rocky Balboa / Jake LaMotta

For his boxing comedy Grudge Match, Peter Segal rounded up two legends of silver-screen boxing: Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro. Granted, the two aren’t quite in the fighting shape they were three decades ago, but the allure of watching Rocky Balboa face off against Jake LaMotta in the ring can’t be denied.

But that no doubt glorious sight will have to wait. Warner Bros. has dropped the first official still from the movie, and it sadly does not feature the aging bruisers in shorts and gloves. Instead of glaring at each other, they’re scowling at Kevin Hart. Whatever, we’ll take it. Check it out after the jump.

machete kills gibson

Sylvester Stallone has been dropping bombs on Twitter in the past couple days, beginning with the announcement that Bruce Willis would not appear in The Expendables 3, but that Harrison Ford had been added to the cast.

Sly has now confirmed the participation of Mel Gibson (he’s the bad guy) and Antonio Banderas for the third Expendables movie. And there’s an interesting statement from the CEO of Lionsgate, who seems to be attempting to prevent Bruce Willis from being totally pissed off about the Expendables situation.
