“I’ve done my mind movies and I don’t think people are very interested in seeing me do that any more. I think I’m past my prime in doing dramatic films, it would feel almost like a pathetic cry out to be recognised as a serious dramaturge.”
At least Sylvester Stallone understands what his screen persona is. The article this quote appears in The Guardian is filled with phenomenal quotes and each one makes me want to see The Expendables.
For instance, Stallone on violence in his films: “I always believe the violence is justifiable. The one thing in my films … I only kill people that need to be killed.”
And on the lack of certain cameo appearances in The Expendables: “I called Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal and they just had different ideas on their … career, so … I did the best I could, you know.”
Yup, I want to see this movie.
