Also blown away, so to speak: Daily Variety news editor Rich Bozanich did a double-take upon seeing himself quoted in those mammoth opening-day print ads for "Rambo III." The reason: It was Rich Gold , of Daily Variety's New York office, who waxed enthusiastic over Sly's latest. Said Bozanich: "I think the last Stallone film I saw was 'Rocky II.' And they had to drag me to it."
With "Rambo III" in full assault, we got to wondering whatever happened to Russell Mulcahy--replaced early in the shoot by second-unit director Peter MacDonald, due to "creative differences" with Sly.
Well, he's not working the unemployment line.
He just wrapped the futuristic "Cyberforce" for Warners-ABC and "Max Headroom" producer Peter Wagg. Originally a pilot, it's become a half-hour presentation reel intended for network brass only (because the original script couldn't be revised during the writers strike).
He's also been at work on commercials. And, reports a Mulcahy rep, "Highlander II," which would reteam Mulcahy with star Christopher Lambert, is "in very active development."
