Sylvester Stallone Teams With Adam Driver for Movie About Afghanistan War Veteran ‘Tough as They Come’
Sylvester Stallone and Adam Driver will make a new movie about the true story of American Army staff sergeant Travis Mills who lost all four of his limbs while fighting in Afghanistan. The movie will be based on Mills’ book “Tough as They Come.”
This will be the first collaboration between the star of the Rocky and Rambo movies and the young Star Wars star who plays Ben Solo, grandson of Darth Vader. That is if Fox studios can succeed in closing the deal.
Deadline reported that WME is shopping the project which has Sylvester Stallone as its director and co-star him and Driver. Stallone would play the soldier’s father in law and Driver would play Travis Mills.
Please read this book about staff Sergeant Travis Mills, a true American hero and REALLY understand the meaning of NEVER giving up and overcoming the odds and being a TRUE inspiration and a PATRIOT !! I hope to be directing this soon with the extraordinary actor, Adam Driver.. @ssgtravismills #FoxStudios
