Sylvester Stallone is coming at you in new mob drama

The three-time Oscar nominee and Rocky star will play the lead role in Kansas City, a Paramount+ streaming drama from Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan and The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire veteran Terence Winter.

Kansas City follows New York City Italian mobster Sal (Stallone), who is forced to relocate to Kansas City, Missouri, of all places. “Set in present day, legendary mobster Sal (Stallone) is faced with the startling task of reestablishing his Italian mafia family to the modernized, straight-shooting town of Kansas City. There, Sal encounters surprising and unsuspecting characters who follow him along his unconventional path to power,” reports Deadline

While Stallone remains a huge Hollywood star ever since writing and starring in the Academy Award winning Rocky (and its sequels), his list of big hitters also includes Rambo, Expendables, The Suicide Squad, and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Kansas City will be his first lead role in a television series.

He couldn’t have teamed up with a better creative team. David C.Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios, said, “Taylor [Sheridan] is a prolific creator because of the multi-dimensional characters he creates and the complex worlds he builds. To be able to have the legendary, transcendent Sylvester playing one of these characters is truly a privilege. And on top of that, we have Terence [Winter] producing the project with us, who is responsible for some of the most captivating, deeply respected television shows in history. We are thrilled that ViacomCBS has partnered with us to help tell this story.”
