“Avenging Angelo” Update from Director Martyn Burke

From Dark Horizons: MARTYN BURKE, director of “Avenging Angelo,” is quoted…

“Just got back from Toronto where they’re setting up locations for the film which will star among others, SYLVESTER STALLONE and probably ANDY GARCIA, ANTHONY QUINN and a leading lady who they’re still in the process of casting. Right now they’re leaning toward MADELINE STOWE. It was a real departure for STALLONE – which was the reason it appealed to me. Shooting begins in late Feb and then moves to Sicily for a couple of weeks to finish in May.”

According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter by Cathy Dunkley and Zorianna Kit, Sly Stallone has agreed to star in “Avenging Angelo” which is described as a dark comedy. Negotiations are on-going to get Martin Burke to direct.

The screenplay was written by Will Aldis and Steve Mackall, and concerns the daughter of a man recently murdered who turns out to be a mafia crime boss. The woman, who the assistance of her father’s bodyguard (Stallone) seek revenge on those that killed her father.

Sly makes two appearances (well sort of) in the November issue of Movieline. He first appears in the picture to the left (reprinted much larger) with Jen at the Battlefield Earth premiere.

Sly also shows up in the 96th spot on the HOLLYWOOD 100 MOST LIST (as the “most egriegiously overpaid”).

Things could be worse since he was not considered:

* Most Likely to Scare a Psychiatrist (Angelina Jolie)

* Most Consistent Sellout (Robert DeNiro)

* Most Permanently in Midlife Crisis (Billy Bob Thornton)

* Most In Need of a Hit (Kevin Costner)

* Most… well, you get the idea!
