Series creator Taylor Sheridan has become a hot commodity at Paramount Plus, but years before his big break as a writer with Sicario in 2015, he was a working actor, who met Stallone at a ranch in horses.

“My daughters and I were training – I play polo a lot; a long time ago people said, how can you afford it? I played with the worst horse on the planet, but I learned and eventually after I made some money I started barrel racing,” Stallone began.

“It’s very, very tricky and I brought my girls there and Taylor Sheridan was in the same barn and he hadn’t made it yet,” Stallone said.

Stallone added that he was still playing and I think he was still doing [2015’s] Sicario, right on point, and I thought, ‘You know what, I’m going to do another Rambo, you want to write it?’

Much to Stallone’s surprise, Sheridan turned Stallone down, stating, “No, I’m kinda busy with my own thing”, but it got them talking.

He added Sheridan, “ended up buying my daughter’s horse and then he bought a second one…but they’re the first start of his transition to being this megastar.”

Refused: Much to Stallone's surprise, Sheridan refused Stallone, stating:

After Sheridan’s hit Sicario in 2015, he then won over fans and critics with the hit films Hell or High Water and Wind River, before creating his hit series Yellowstone in 2018.

Stallone also revealed, “I’ve always wanted to play a mobster ever since… I basically started my career mugging everyone… but that never happened. I have my thoughts on why but better late than never.

“Taylor Sheridan wrote an idea, a script that was really good and Terence Winter, who wrote Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire, they put it all together and what you have is East meets West,” he added at the Londoner Hotel for the Paramount+ UK launch event. .

He added that his character, “coming out of prison after 25 years, expecting to be rewarded for keeping his mouth shut and being betrayed.”

When he is sent to rule Tulsa, “it’s a different world, a different kind of people, and he’s starting to get indoctrinated into the western way of life.” So it’s a combination of the two. It’s a dark comedy, but it can also get difficult.

Stallone also hinted at a possible appearance on Yellowstone, saying, “Absolutely,” and he’s known Yellowstone star Kevin Costner “for ages.”
