Sylvester Stallone is moving ahead with the long-gestating adaptation of James Byron Huggins’ novel Hunter. Stallone bought the rights to the project, so it was probably going ahead at some point. The story follows Nathaniel Hunter, whose hyper-tracking skills are employed to hunt down a raging beast, a half-human terror created by a renegade agency that is threatening to wreak havoc of civilization.
This is from Braden Aftergood’s Balboa Productions label and they have also set up Samaritan which is dubbed a dark, ‘fresh take on the superhero genre’ and aims to start production next year. Stallone is also pegged to star in that.
Aside from Hunter, Stallone has been teasing the return of Rambo again on Instagram.
