Stallone is hiring

It appears Sly Stallone and MGM are hanging out the ‘now hiring’ sign over at his planned remake of The Mechanic.

The Mechanic!? So, what’s happened to Death Wish? Seems Sly has been taking a peek at other entries on Charlie Bronson’s CV – and has committed to star in a $40 million Mechanic retool.

The studio is already looking at possible actors to play the young, wannabe hitman who goes to Sly’s veteran assassin for advice. According to Dark Horizons , the likes of Ryan Gosling, Cillian Murphy, Ben Foster and Elijah Wood are all under consideration.

Our vote goes to either Foster or Gosling, though Wood did a decent hard-nut job in Green Street…
