Stallone talks Rambo V
Sylvester Stallone has been talking about Rambo V again, and while the news isn't anything new as we already heard that he was writing the script and there was talk that Weinstein wanted to try and set it in America, it is a clear update from the man himself.
He confirms what we already know, that he's planning to play the character of John Rambo again, it's just where to set it, and there seems to be a bit of a debate behind the scenes.
"Yeah, we are doing another Rambo, but the conflict is whether to do it in America or a foreign country…"
See, I told you he said that. The comment comes from ExtraTV through Coming Soon. It was back in September of last year that we saw the official Lionsgate press release that said Stallone was writing the fifth Rambo film, and why not? The fourth earned over double what it cost to make which is a very healthy return considering how old the franchise, and the star, are.
I'm definitely there for another Rambo, and you know what? I'd be delighted to see it in America. Of course the issue there is that it might end up becoming a little like Jack Bauer, and if it went abroad again it might feel a little convoluted about Rambo running away…again, especially after he's just come home.
