Stallone and Russell have talked about a Tango & Cash sequel…

So, Rambo: Last Blood is dividing audiences and critics at the minute on the big screen, but it seems that Sylvester Stallone has loads of future plans for other comebacks of his more familiar movies.

Firstly, he’s talking to Alita: Battle Angel and From Dusk Til Dawn director Robert Rodriguez about rebooting Cobra, the 1986 action movie that starred (and was written by) Stallone Brigitte and co-starred Brigitte Nielsen and Reni Santoni.

“It’s basically his baby now,” Stallone says, hinting that it may end up as a TV series.

Now, I have to be honest, I actually don’t believe I’ve ever seen Cobra. But I keep meaning too.

However, one movie I have seen many, many times is 1989’s Tango & Cash, the buddy cop action movie that starred Stallone and FTN favourite Kurt Russell as two completely different LAPD cops (Tango and, you guessed it, Cash) who are framed by mutual nemesis and arch-villain Jack Palance and end up in prison. And it’s a very fun, very 1980s actionfest.

“I would do Tango & Cash in a second,” Stallone says.

“I know, with Kurt [Russell], it’s not about a caper… it’s just us doing our thing.”

Now, while nothing official is happening, it seems that Stallone HAS pitched it to Russell who, sadly, seems not keen on the idea: “I don’t know, Sly…” Stallone says Russell told him, “there we were in our prime and now we’re in our unprime, I dunno.”

“So I said, Kurt, “I’m telling you, ya gotta go in on this.” So he said, “I’ll talk to you when I get back.”

It’s unclear where he’s getting back from (may The Christmas Chronicles 2?) but it seems the idea is out there and, guys, if you’re reading this, please come back as Tango & Cash… you’re just the sort of heroes the world needs right now.

Would you like to see these two back? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
