While it failed to pack ’em in at the box office, Julius Avery’s horror/war film was a load of ‘B’-movie fun, so any next project by him has my interest. Well, ‘Deadline’ reports that he’s set to direct Samaritan for MGM from an original screenplay by Bragi F. Schut [Escape Room], which, according to the website is a thriller about “a young boy who is out to discover if a mythic superhero, who vanished 20 years earlier following a tragic event, is still alive”, and will star Sylvester Stallone.

Says Avery:
“Sly is a hero of mine, I’m incredibly thrilled to be working with such an iconic actor on this very special project with Balboa Productions and MGM”.

Stallone currently has Rambo: Last Blood in cinemas, and I will be reviewing it tomorrow!

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
