Presenting Sly Stallone’s Balboa Productions

Matt Donnelly at Variety checks in with Sylvester Stallone’s Production Company Wants to Be the Blumhouse of Action Films and it is well worth a read.  The piece talks about the goal of Sly creating Balboa Productions…

“My goal is for us to be the go-to place for action,” says Aftergood. He wants Balboa to follow the specialty model of Blumhouse, the company behind “Get Out” and “The Purge.” “I appreciate that statement is grandiose, but Blumhouse has done an extraordinary job owning the horror space,” says Aftergood. “There is no reason why we can’t own the action space in a similar way.”

The rationale  behind Sly creating Balboa Productions…

“At one of our first meetings, I asked him why he wanted to do this,” Aftergood recalls. “Starting and running a company is a pain in the ass. I don’t care who you are or how many people are underneath you — at some point you have to answer a question about payroll, about office decor. In Stallone’s case, he seemed to have graduated past all of that.” Stallone answered with one word: legacy.

Balboa Productions that are in the pipeline…

  • Arcane, a monster movie from director Corin Hardy
  • The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil  remake co-starring Sly
  • The Bellhop, starring Iko Uwais star of The Raid: Redemption
  • Samaritan starring Sly
  • Biopic of black boxing legend Jack Johnson produced by Sly
  • Nighthawks reboot for USA network based on Sly’s 1981 film
  • The Tenderloin, a cop drama for History.

(The only thing missing is Sly’s adaptation of Hunter by James Byron Huggins.  Cannot wait to see what Sly does with this great action/horror novel.  It is a natural for him and Balboa Productions! – Craig)
