I look forward to bringing this exciting new story to the screen.”

    Tango & Cash sequel,now that would be something.Especially as Stallone and Russell are getting better as they`re getting older ;)

    Love it, Sly needs to keep doing action movies! No one else really knows how to do them anymore - but Sly also strikes the perfect balance. Next I want to see him do another Rambo along the lines of The Shootist. Also, Tango and Cash deserves a sequel! I've got some great ideas for one, and besides if they can make a sequel to TRON 20 + years later, Tango and Cash is due.

    So True, I would have loved to see Jane next to Sly in the movie.

    Shame on you Silver for replacing Jane. If Jane were african american this would not have happened without a huge uproar in Hollywood. I hope the film does well, good luck.
