Another Rambo Moive!?
After Sylvester Stallone initially poo-pooed the idea of another Rambo sequel, and then reportedly signed on to direct and star in two more unnamed action movies, it looks like we may finally have confirmation on what many had already suspected. One of these unnamed action movies is indeed a fifth Rambo flick! I guess part 4 wasn’t the end of the line for John Rambo after all.
The Hollywood Reporter recently did a piece on some of the upcoming projects from Lionsgate, and among them Rambo V is listed plain as day:
“On the development horizon are “Warrior,” which Gavin O’Connor co-wrote and will direct; “Conan,” a fast-tracked project with multiple scripts in the works; “Severance Package,” with Brett Simon writing and directing; “Rambo V,” to be written and directed by Sylvester Stallone; “Korean Wedding” from writer Jason Filardi; and “Kane & Lynch,” a video game adaptation that will star Bruce Willis.”
Well, as much as I am worried that a fifth Rambo might be pushing his luck, I have to admit that I will be first in line to see it when it comes out. Based on how the last movie concluded, it seems likely that this installment will bring Rambo back to the good ol’ U.S. of A., and I’m curious to see where Stallone might take it from there. At the very least, I suppose Rambo can withstand another sequel a lot better than Rocky could. [filmjunk]
