Following his role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it seems that Sylvester Stallone could be set for another comic book movie outing, with Splash Report claiming that Sly is wanted for the lead in 20th Century Fox’s Starlight.
Based upon the comic book series from Mark Millar and Goran Parlov, Starlight tells the story of Duke McQueen, an aging space hero who once saved the universe before returning to Earth where his heroic tales were met with disbelief. Years later, he finds himself recruited for one last adventure.
Starlight has been in development for a number of years now, with Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) having written the screenplay, and Fox’s X-Men architect Simon Kinberg producing.
