Stallone in "Over the Top II" following "Rambo IV" and next Rocky

Citing the popularity of Celebrity Poker and "The Simple Life", Sylvester Stallone has announced that he has signed on for "Over the Top II" the iconic 1987 arm-wrestling movie which brought to national attention the "over the top" move.

The role is to be looked at as fairly relaxing after training for his other two films, as he only needs to strengthen one arm and drive a truck. Don Fabreezi, Stallone's stunt double is not happy. "I have three kids to put through college, Stallone has barely needed a double the last 10 years and with the cost of college and the pay scale for two movies, I think #3 is looking at state school."

The studios for all three movies are very exciting for the trilogy. "The last time any of this series of movies came out our demographic was teen and twenty-something men. Now they've all grown up and gone through their first divorces and thus won't have any entanglements holding them back. Also think of all that cash saved up now that they are in their 30's and 40's," said a spokesman from Universal.

Phil Macgruder, from the Filmology Institute says, "This is just another example of studios not being able to come up with any new ideas. They're just throwing anything up against the wall and seeing if it sticks."

Expected release date is December 2006 as the dialogue is not expected to take long to write.
