Could Sylvester Stallone become the Seventh James Bond?
Stallone’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), The Expendables 3 (2014) and Grudge Match (2013). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Stallone now is – what next?

- It would give Sylvester Stallone a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
