Stallone’s Hunter comes to fruition

Following the new “Rambo” and “Creed” sequels, Sylvester Stallone will begin work on the long-gestating film adaptation of James Byron Huggins’ novel “Hunter”, of which she’s owned the rights for nearly a decade.

The film, which Sly will produce via his newly-formed Balboa Productions label, tells of a hunter who is employed to track down a half-human terror created by a renegade agency.

Balboa Productions is also prepping “Samaritan”, which is a “dark, fresh take on the superhero genre” and aims to kick it off next year, shortly before “Hunter” – which still needs to be written, let alone secure a scribe.

Stallone, who next reprises his role as Rocky Balboa in “Creed 2”, has also snared the rights to Michael McGowan and Ralph Pezzullo’s memoir “Ghost: My Thirty Years as an FBI Undercover Agent”. Also on his books, a special ops film from retired Army Ranger Max Adams.
