According to Deadline, Jim Mickle (Stake Land, Cold in July) is set to direct Sylvester Stallone in a new thriller for STX Entertainment, which has been penned by Daniel Casey and was previously titled Godforsaken.
The project will see Sly as “an aging ex-con with more regrets than memories. Upon hearing about his son’s death his solitude is quickly broken as he must now protect the only family he has left and avenge a son he hardly knew.”
Mickle is currently working on an adaptation of John N. Maclean’s novel The Esperanza Fire, while Stallone has several projects on his upcoming slate, including the mob thrillers Scarpa and Omerta, Marvel sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and animated comedy Animal Crackers.
