How much does Sylvester Stallone have left in the tank? We know he’s pretty much done with action roles. In a new interview with IndieWire, Sylvester Stallone has said that he is considering retirement. But not full retirement, rather stepping away from acting gigs.
But after his latest dual role — leading and executive producing the Paramount+ series “Tulsa King” — Stallone may be staying behind the camera on his future creative endeavors. When asked if he’s writing any passion projects to direct and star in, Stallone said, “I might, but maybe not the acting.” He mentioned “Poe,” the Edgar Allen Poe biopic he’s long sought to realize, as well as “Tenderloin,” a TV show he developed with “Yellowstone” director and executive producer Stephen Kay.
“But I doubt the acting aspect of it,” Stallone said. “I think this might be my swan song.”
Stallone is obviously an accomplished director. He’s done almost everything there is to do acting-wise. This could be the correct decision.
