Sly to Write, Direct & Star in Hunter!

Bloody Disgusting has reported that

  • Stallone and Lionsgate have inked up a deal to fast track Hunter for 2014 release date. Stallone is set to star, write and direct, which will be filmed in 3-D.

I really hope this pans out. Hunter was written by James Byron Huggins specifically with Sly in mind. It’s an awesome book that will translate into a very cool movie.

  • A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation. It is a job Hunter cannot turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man’s cunning, a predator’s savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages.”

Let’s hope everything lines up and Hunter gets made with Stallone at the helm. – Craig
