Sung Kang Tapped For New Sly Stallone Film

“Fast Five” actor Sung Kang has landed a “key supporting role” in an upcoming movie starring Sylvester Stallone, according to Variety.

The trade publication said the untitled project will be directed by Walter Hill.

Stallone will play a New Orleans hitman who teams up with an NYC cop in order to track down the killers of their respective partners. The action film will be shot in Louisiana and will begin shooting later this month, according to Variety.

This will not be the first time Stallone will work with a Korean American actor, let alone a KA actor with the last name Kang. In 2008, the man responsible for the “Rocky” franchise directed and acted in the fourth installment of “Rambo,” which also starred Tim Kang.
