Filming Resumes On New Movie

Set-pics have dropped for Sylvester Stallone’s new superhero movie Samaritan, which has started production again over the last fortnight.

Samaritan centres on a young boy (Javon ‘Wanna’ Walton). He is in search of a mythic superhero who vanished 20 years ago after a tragic event.

Julius Avery, who directed the J.J. Abrams-produced zombie flick Overlord, is at the helm. Avery is working from an original story by Bragi F. Schut, who penned the horror hit Escape Room. Schut also worked on the screenplay, with Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), Zak Penn (Ready Player One) and Chuck MacLean (City On A Hill) also contributing.

The cast also includes Martin Starr (Silicon Valley), Pilou Asbæk (Game Of Thrones), Dascha Polanco (Orange Is The New Black) Moises Arias (Five Feet Apart).

On his Instagram page, Sly said –

“Filming is going absolutely great!!! Samaritan.”

“A special kind of movie Super Hero is heading your way!”

Stallone is managing to stay busy these days. The actor starred in Rambo: Last Blood last year and also reprised the role for Mortal Kombat 11, with the game bringing the action hero in via some new DLC. Stallone has also been working on a director’s cut of Rocky IV.

Filming originally halted on Samaritan back in March. It is unclear how much still needs to be shot, not to mention post-production. At present, the movie is dated for December 11th.
