As if it were truffle pigs, in Hollywood they are always looking for a way to replicate the success of other productions, either by returning to a film from the past or creating new approaches to something that has already been done. A few weeks back, it was announced that Sylvester Stallone would be returning to action with the sequel to his 1993 escalation film, Maximum Risk.
Rick Roman Waugh, director of action films such as Target: Washington DC, will take control of this sequel to Maximum Risk, in which the Rocky actor will again test his skills while climbing the Italian Alps.
Sylvester Stallone is already an age: The star turns 77 in July, but he continues to give his all as an action movie actor, like many celebrities in their fifths.
The original High Risk film was released three decades ago, prompting Rick Roman Waugh to share the approach he hopes other recent titles will emulate for this belated sequel.
Another long overdue sequel from Sylvester Stallone
While promoting Kandahar, the new Gerard Butler film, with the folks at Screen Rant, the director reveals he looks to films like Top Gun: Maverick or Creed to find the right tone and focus for the Maximum Risk sequel .
“I’m going to do the next Maximum Risk sequel with Stallone, and I’ll see how his character develops. Now he has a daughter who’s also a climber, and all hell breaks loose in the Italian Alps, and here we go.” Are .
But it’s a development of the cliffhanger in the same way that Top Gun: Maverick furthered the story of the original film. Or how Creed became the evolution of Rocky into a new franchise.
That’s what we’re seeing in Maximum Risk 2. It’s fun to be a part of a new beginning or development of something like this. On the one hand, it’s a continuation of a story that means a lot to me, and on the other, it would be fun to create something really cool and meaningful.”
For now, there are no more details on the sequel to Maximum Risk. It seemed like Sylvester Stallone was already showing age and preferring quieter roles like Tulsa King, but a call to action has once again claimed the Rocky and Rambo actor.
