Stallone ankles 'Frequency'

Sylvester Stallone has fallen out of New Line Cinema’s “Frequency,” although director Renny Harlin still plans to direct the actioner, sources said. “Men in Black’s” Tommy Lee Jones now tops the list to star in the big-budget actioner about a New York City firefighter in 1969 who somehow is able to communicate over a ham radio with his son, who is a homicide cop in 1997. The son tries to save his father from dying in a fire. Sources say Stallone’s deal fell apart over money. Stallone, who usually gets $20 million for actioners and is one of the few actors with strong box office appeal overseas, has seen his domestic audience erode in recent years. Sources said New Line’s offer was far beneath his usual payday. He next stars in “Cop Land” for Miramax Films.
