Cliffhanger Sequel Rumors

It’s a very unlikely story, nevertheless the British tabloids are reporting that Sylvester Stallone wants to revisit his rock-climber character Gabe Walker from 1993’s “Cliffhanger”.

One of Stallone’s better action films outside of the Rocky/Rambo franchises, the original Renny Harlin-directed thriller took in $255 million worldwide off a $65 million budget and received praise for the two memorable action/suspense sequences that start the film.

Still, plans for a sequel in the late 90’s were scrapped due to the star’s dwindling box-office appeal. Now, with Rocky and Rambo having made successful returns, talk of the sequel entitled “The Dam” has apparently begun again over at Sony Pictures.
