Action legend Sylvester Stallone (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3) is set to return for a sequel to his 1993 classic actioner Cliffhanger.
Cliffhanger 2 will be directed by Ric Roman Waugh (Angel Has Fallen) from a script by Mark Bianculli (Hunters).
Neal H. Moritz’s Original Film (Fast & Furious franchise) will produce with Rocket Science along with Stallone and Braden Aftergood’s Balboa Productions.
No plot details has been revealed besides the fact that Stallone will reprise his character of Ranger Gabriel “Gabe” Walker.
“Growing up with the biggest action films of the 80s and 90s, working on many of them myself, Cliffhanger was by far one of my favorite spectacles. To be at the helm of the next chapter, scaling the Italian Alps with the legend himself, Sylvester Stallone, is a dream come true. It’s going to be a great challenge and blast taking this franchise to new heights, a responsibility I don’t take lightly,” said Director Waugh.
