Sylvester Stallone Film Pulled From Fundraising Website

Sylvester Stallone’s film Reach Me has been pulled from fundraising site Kickstarter.com and moved to another, despite reaching its goal.

Director John Herzfeld and producers turned to the site to raise $250,000, after one of the movie’s financial  backers pulled out, setting a September 19 deadline to raise the funds.

The filmmakers were able to secure the money, but decided to cancel the Kickstarter.com campaign and move it over to Indiegogo.com, where they have more flexibility on how the funds are raised.

Herzfeld explains, “Indiegogo doesn’t have the same guidelines as Kickstarter. They allow for participation from all parties. It’s a bit more flexible, and there’s an international platform as well. They made it easy for us and were very, very helpful.”

With the new drive, the movie maker is only seeking $50,000, after another source of cash emerged.

Reach Me follows a group of people brought together by a self-help book and also stars Kelsey Grammer, Kyra Sedgwick, Tom Sizemore, Danny Trejo and rapper Nelly.

Sylvester Stallone Talks About the Cast for ‘The Expendables 3’

Sylvester Stallone is on the hunt for a “young Sigourney Weaver” to complete his cast for the next The Expendables movie.

The action man has taken to using Twitter.com to try and recruit veterans for The Expendables 3 after recently posting the note “Calling SEAGAL” in the hope of persuading Steven Seagal to join the project.

And, in his latest tweet, Stallone appears to be looking for a tough lady, writing, “A young Sigorney (sic) Weaver anywhere out there?”

He is also using the social media site to update fans on casting news, posting, “Talked to Wesley (Snipes) today… He can not WAIT to fight to the top again!!!!!!!” on May 15, and adding, “Just talked to Steven S. in Moscow… Sounds great and says he wants to be in EX3, if the part fits.”

Nicolas Cage and Jackie Chan are also being considered as additions to the cast, according to multiple reports.

Sylvester Stallone Supports Gun Control

Sylvester Stallone is wading into the assault weapons debate in the U.S., insisting no civilian should have access to the big guns his characters use in action movies.

President Barack Obama has been urged to introduce new gun legislation following last year’s massacres at a cinema in Colorado and a school in Connecticut, and celebrities have started taking sides.

Stallone appears to back new laws to prevent people from purchasing semi-automatic weapons because he doesn’t think the guns are necessary for self-defense.

The Rambo star tells the Associated Press, “I know people go, ‘They’re going to take away the assault weapon’. (But) who… needs an assault weapon?

“You can’t hunt with it… (and) who’s going to attack your house, a f***ing army?”

According to Yahoo!, he has teamed up with executives at Lionsgate and is hoping to release the movie in 2014.

Stallone will write, direct and star in the thriller about the search for a mythical beast in the Arctic Circle. The film will be shot in 3D.
