Sylvester Stallone in an Escape from New York-esque action-thriller? Consider us intrigued.

Via Deadline, Stallone has signed on to star in Platinum Dunes’ Little America. The movie will be a dystopian future-set offering which is being compared to John Carpenter’s iconic 1981 picture.

Sly is set to play a former Army Ranger who’s hired to find a billionaire’s daughter in a murky wasteland city that’s been walled-off from the rest of Hong Kong.

Strange but True’s Roman Athale is writing and directing Little America.
