Sylvester Stallone set to Star in “Omerta”

The news broke earlier this week that Sly Stallone is set to star as mob boss Raymonde Aprile in an television adaptation of Mario Puzo’s best seller Omerta.  Antoine [Training Day] Fuqua is set to direct.

Stallone and Fuqua along with Harvey and Bob Weinstein and David Glasser will serve as Executive Producers on the series which is being fast-tracked for production.

I think that is an excellent move by Sly.  With the right team (and they are off to a great start with Stallone and Fuqua at the helm) this series could be right up there with Justified and The Shield.  I can not wait for this!
