Sylvester Stallone has signed up to star in the story of infamous hitman Scarpa.
Sylvester Stallone is set to star in mob movie 'Scarpa'.
The veteran actor will play real-life hitman Gregory Scarpa, known as 'The Grim Reaper', in Brad Furman's long-planned project, according to The Wrap.
The story, penned by 'Goodfellas' writer Nick Pileggi, focuses on the late mobster, who was an enforcer for the Colombo crime family, killing over 50 people before becoming an FBI informant when his own loved ones were murdered.
He then repented for his actions by undertaking secret missions like kidnapping a Ku Klux Klan member and getting him to confess to the whereabouts of the bodies of three civil rights workers killed in Mississippi.
In 1993, Scarpa pleaded guilty to three murders and died of AIDS in prison in 1994.
