Sylvester Stallone has finally decided on a follow up to his last movie, the low-budget Cop Land. He will make a thriller, Detox, to be directed by Jim Gillespie (the man who did the pointing and shouting for I Know What You Did Last Summer). This comes on the back of news that Stallone's $60 million, three-picture deal with Universal, which set a new precedent for actors' salaries when it was announced in 1995, has been "restructured." No details about the restructuring were spelled out, and it's also not clear whether this movie will count as part of the deal or how much Stallone will earn. The script concerns the exploits of a traumatized cop who checks into a rehab clinic after witnessing a brutal incident on the job. The centre specializes in the treatment of law enforcement officers but Stallone's fellow sufferers soon start being murdered one by one. Who's doing the killing? Why? And will Sly sort it all out, or will he get killed in the first five minutes? Filming will start in January.
