Sylvester Stallone to star in Reach Me

November 14th, 2012

Sylvester Stallone has joined the cast of 'Reach Me'.

The 'Rocky' actor has signed up to star in the John Herzfeld-directed drama, which follows a group of people who all have a connection to a self-help book authored by a reclusive former American football coach.

However, details of Stallone's supporting role are being kept under wraps.

The film also stars Nelly, Omari Hardwick, Elizabeth Henstridge, Danny Aiello and Rebekah Chaney, who is producing alongside Herzfeld, among others.

Filming has already started and Stallone recently spent a few days on set with his castmates.

Herzfeld previously wrote and directed the Robert De Niro thriller '15 Minutes' and '2 Days in the Valley', which launched the career of Charlize Theron.

He most recently directed 'The Death and Life of Bobby Z', an independent film starring Paul Walker, Laurence Fishburne and Olivia Wilde.

Stallone will next be seen in Walter Hill's 'Bullet to the Head' and action thriller 'The Tomb', in which he stars alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He's also set to appear alongside opposite Robert De Niro in upcoming boxing pic 'Grudge Match'.
