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.

 

Retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne is a motivational speaker and international advocate for veterans and amputees. He is one of only five servicemen from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan ever to survive his injuries as a quadruple amputee. He founded the Travis Mills Foundation, which benefits and assists wounded and injured veterans.
