Stallone to star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio for MARTIN SCORSESE's SHUTTER ISLAND? NOT

Harry here... the story below got forwarded to me by AB KING - who had in turn been sent it. The story was an alleged screengrab of a YAHOO story that claimed to be sourcing a HOLLYWOOD REPORTER story. Upon further review - I can't find any such story on Yahoo or Hollywood Reporter - so at this point I'd say... tis a hoax.

Hey folks, Harry here... This frickin' rocks if it comes to pass. Apparently Martin Scorsese has offered the co-starring role in his upcoming Leonardo DiCaprio mystery-thriller SHUTTER ISLAND! He'd be playing a character named Chuck Aule. Stallone apparently hasn't officially accepted the role yet, but let's pray he does. I think it could be fascinating - those of us that are fans of Stallone know that there is a great actor there - and in the hands of Scorsese - I'm hopeful we'll see something truly remarkable in Sly's career!

    Great career move Sly!

    by ABking

    If Sly takes this role and works with Scorsese, then his career will be RED HOT again! Stallone should do a big action film RAMBO, then do a big dramatic film like this. First ROCKY BALBOA, then RAMBO, then DEATH WISH, now hopefully this. Next should be HUNTER and INGLORIOUS BASTARDS with Schwarzenegger.

  • Nov. 10, 2007, 7:39 p.m. CST

    Big move for Sly

    by abelkane3434

    This would be huge for Sly's career right now and it would be preferable in my opinion that he does this instead of Death Wish. A role with Dicaprio in a Scorsese film could really put Sly back on the map and give him a greater freedom in what he chooses to do.

    Scorcese + DiCaprio

    by TheGreatHomsar

    Don't get me wrong, I thought Gangs of New York and The Aviator were two of Marty's weakest efforts (if not for Daniel "God of the Screen" Day-Lewis's performance, I would've walked out of Gangs). But The Departed is solid gold. Marty deserved the Oscar, hands down.

    wasn't with Scorcese but with Edward Zwick in Blood Diamond. If someone had told me beforehand DiCaprio was going to do a movie with an Africaaner accent, I woulda saved my ticket price. But damn he pulled that off in an Oscar caliber performance. Check it out if you haven't already.

  • Nov. 10, 2007, 10:02 p.m. CST


    by BringingSexyBack

    Fantastic film, hilariously funny (in parts) everytime you watch it. Had a bunch of plot holes, but that's partially due to the original Infernal Affairs and Bill Monahan's script. Scorcese did his best with what was given and he elevated it with his inimitable style.

    I think Sly was asked why he never did a movie with Arnold back during the Balboa Q&As ... I believe he said they (the major action stars of the time - Stallone, Arnold, Willis, etc.) were in a competing mode against each other and their egos were too great to do a movie together. Something to that effect. Looking back though, it would have been awesome given the right story and script.

    About Infernal Affairs

    by Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World

    I watched it, I heard a few people claim the original was better while The Departed was in theatres so I checked it out. Anyway, ITS THE SAME FUCKING MOVIE. Except The Departed has better actors. People are such iconoclastic jackasses, there's no way anyone could logically think Infernal Affairs was the better film, unless they're asian and can't speak english.

  • Nov. 11, 2007, 1:52 a.m. CST


    by BringingSexyBack

    Maybe reading the subtitles through you off, but Infernal Affairs was, IMO, the better movie.<p> Firstly, its lead characters were more thoroughly fleshed out in showing their motivations. Especially Tony Leung's character. And it had fewer plotholes than The Departed (though not flawless).<p> And the ending was less bang-bang satisfying, but more richly dramatic. By keeping Andy Lau alive, and effectively a redeemed person, it elevated Tony Leung's character immeasurably and gave layers of meaning to him.<p> So while I really enjoy The Departed because it's really Scorcese doing what he does best in every aspect of his talent, I give the overall nod to Infernal Affairs for its story and artistic merit. They're vastly different movies sharing the same basic plot.

    Wrong actors in The Departed

    by GCH888

    Imagine if Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro took on the roles of the crime lord and the police captain which ultimately went to Jack Nicholson and Martin Sheen. Now that would've been a much better movie in my opinion. Also they should have kept the ending from the original movie and allowed the Matt Damon character to have survived.

  • Nov. 11, 2007, 4:25 a.m. CST

    Even if it isn't true..

    by cameron1975willi

    Maybe this talkback will inspire Scorsese to think about Stallone in the role. Stallone's acting in the final sequence of First Blood, where he breaks down, is some of the best I've ever seen and I've seen it all!

    Stallone would act DiCaprio off the screen. Wont happen.

    by wowsah156

    There are only a few good actors in America who transcend generations: Stallone, William Shatner,Clancy Brown, Toby Maguire. Leonardo Di Caprio is not one of them. DiCaprio is so over rated. Any acting ability that he had was lost under the destructive eye of Scorsese. I have alwys been suspicious pf Scorsese after his inability to get a good performance out of Daniel Day Lewis, who is ususally bombproof. Stallone transcends these 2 clowns of DiCaprio and Scorsese. Scorsese only ever made one good movie. All the rest of it is mafiaporn. Stallone is a national treasure, too good for thiose clowns.

  • Nov. 11, 2007, 5:11 a.m. CST

    And this is news because?

    by metaluna

    Since when did reporting a RUMOUR become newsworthy? And for the record, Stallone can BARELY act. If he could act, he'd be in a darn sight more movies where he doesn't tear someone's head off as a character trait. And yeh, Scorsese hasn't made a decent flick in a looong time. The Departed was ruined the instant they stepped out of the lift at the end and that cop from nowhere tells them he was in with them all along and I swear you can hear the audience go 'what the fxxk?'. Bullshit hack storytelling is what I believe it's called - something Scorsese is getting good at. I dunno, maybe Scorsese and Stallone deserve one another.

  • Nov. 11, 2007, 6:38 a.m. CST

    An important talent Hollywood actors should possess...

    by Bobo_Vision the talent to pick decent projects. That means choosing good scripts, talented directors, and a good supporting or ensemble cast. This is something actors like Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp excel at, and something Stallone desperately lacks. In the thirty plus years Stallone has been in the biz, I can only imagine the roles he has rejected while instead choosing to make films like Oscar, Judge Dredd, Stop or My Mom will Shoot, Driven, Get Carter, and on and on. <p> He has talent as an actor, but absolutely no barometer for picking decent projects. It's hit and miss with him, more miss than hit. I think he's lasted because people keep waiting for him to finally stop making ego-driven star vehicles where he gets to beat people up or blow shit up, and start making decent choices as an actor.

    I'm sick of seeing that little pussy cry in movies. Give me stallone alone pumping some pure mansterone back into theaters again, thanks.

    Scorsese was the greatest director alive until...

    (sorry, dumb mouse)

    by major_tom_aint_dead

    until he got Oscar fever. His last great movie is quite underrated: Bringing Out the Dead (anything with both Scorsese and Schrader in the credits is real gold). After that, he got Oscar fever and Leo fever and tough The Departed is wachtable I cant see the director from Taxi Driver or Raging Bull behing that pile of...whatever those fucking Leo movies were. I´ll never understand why Scorsese wanted a fucking Oscar so badly when the best directors never ever won the fucking thing (at least, not as best director). But I confess: Scorsese + Stallone sounds an interesting pairing (they had a cameo together in a Corman film ages ago), even if Leo, Whoppi Goldberg and Jim Carrey co-star, I would end seeing it.

    The Departed is awful

    by Laserhead

    Senseless, without any logic, practically COMEDIC by the end... (why don't you just arrest Nicholson? you've got plenty of evidence... "we're building a case!"...oh) Scorcese hasn't made a decent movie in well over a decade, and his DiCaprio collaborations have each been worst than the last. Shutter Island is an entertaining book, but it basically revolves around a single, sixth-sense-like plot point which, if you see it coming, takes all enjoyment out of the read.

    i know of one or two practicing homosexuals who rather enjoyed The Departed. i did too, whilst not being in the bum camp. what does that do to your stance?

    by mrbong

    has been the weakest element in the last three Scorsese films, hasn't he? what a shame that Martin keeps casting him, he obviously sees something that we do not. oh well, as long as keeps Jack Black out of the cinema, i will go along with whatever it is.

    Why DiCaprio?

    by JoeSixPack

    I continue to question why Scorsese uses him in every movie. The only movie of MS' he was good in was The Aviator.

  • Nov. 11, 2007, 1:30 p.m. CST

    I thought that Scorsese was remaking GILLIGAN'S ISLAND...

    by thegreatwhatzit

    Adrien Brody as Gilligan, Sammo Hung as the Skipper...with Stallone and Sharon Stone reuniting as the Howells (though Stone may a bit too old for the role, better can the close-ups).

    Can't believe people believed this

    And Infernal Affairs is a snoozefest compared to The Departed.

    Sissy boy DiCaprio could kick all your geek asses.

    by Knuckleduster

    The man has proven himself in my book. And all this Scorsese hate is starting to piss me the fuck off. Show some respect, motherfuckers.

    it's all true! highly entertaining flick... completely filled w/ senseless plot holes...

    Who cares if it had plot holes, my question is..

    One of Scorcese's underrated masterpieces. But a masterpiece nonetheless. If you're in the proper (melancholic) mood, watching it can make you feel like your soul is being drained.

  • Nov. 12, 2007, 9:07 a.m. CST

    Dennis Lehane

    by salinacj

    Who cares who is in the movie. With Scorsese creating a movie from an excellent book by Dennis Lehane, it will be a great movie ever if Casey Affleck was the leasd!!

    Shutter Island

    by Norseman1111

    This is a great book! But I think that the two main characters are closer in age then DeCaprio and Stallone are. Anyway I hope it gets made.

    Idiotic to believe this casting

    by Ninja Nerd

    If you've read the book, there's no way Sly could play Chuck. For that matter, Leo is too baby-faced for the lead. I'm a big fan of Laura with Dana Andrews as the world-weary cop investigating the murder. I saw that kind of lead for Shutter Island. Plus, a hardboiled detective makes the last act all the more stunning. So, I have doubts about Leo and absolutely knew there was NO WAY Stallone had the Chuck role.

    Great book

    by Avengerdude

    Yeah this was a great book but I would have thought it impossible to film. Those who have read it will know what I mean. Bit like Iain Bank's 'User of Weapons'. Relies on you not being able to see what is happenning.

    Stallone blows

    by queerfilmjunkie

    Stallone occasionally turns in a good perfomance, but the guy looks so pathetic and bloated now that I can't take him seriously. Saw the new Rambo trailer this weekend. Looked awful. Stallone's face is more swollen now than it was at the end of Rocky II.

  • Nov. 12, 2007, 1:19 p.m. CST

    I'd like to see Stallone in something like this

    by CherryValance

    There's no reason why he can't act in one movie while putting one of his own together.

  • Nov. 12, 2007, 10:42 p.m. CST

    Do it Sly!!!

    by super Cucaracha

    Stallone has the talent to work with a legend like Marty. The man had great performances in Rocky, Rocky Balboa, Copland, Night Hawks and First Blood. He is like the one action star that can truly act. He's been underrated for years. I am already in line bitches if he decides to go for it.
