Actress Annabella Sciorra (“The Sopranos”, “Queens of Crime”) has joined the cast of the Paramount + “Tulsa King” series.
She will play Joanne, the younger sister of the central character, Dwight (Sylvester Stallone). The attendance will mark a reunion between Sciorra and Stallone, who previously starred in James Mangold’s big movie “Cop Land,” released in 1997.
“Tulsa King” will be the first series to star Sylvester Stallone in his five-decade career.
At the age of 75, the interpreter of Rambo and Rocky will play a powerful New York mobster who, after serving a prison sentence, is forced to move to the city of Tulsa, in the US state of Oklahoma.
The attraction was created by Taylor Sheridan (creator of “Yellowstone”), who manages for the second time to persuade a Hollywood veteran to become a star of the series. One of the reasons for the huge success of “Yellowstone” is the participation of Kevin Costner.
In “Tulsa King”, Sheridan will work alongside another well-known producer of the series universe: Terence Winter, writer of “The Sopranos” and creator of “Boardwalk Empire”. Sheridan, Winter and Stallone are producing together.
The premiere is scheduled for November 13 in streaming.
