Sylvester Stallone Just Dropped A Major ‘Rambo’ Announcement

Published

on

Sylvester Stallone has made a habit of returning to his iconic characters of late, and he’s set to do it once more with a brand new Rambo flick. He’ll obviously star, but is he working behind the camera too?

‘Rambo 5’ In The Works

Stallone previously said that 2008’s Rambo was going to be the end of the franchise, but it seems as though he wasn’t ready to say goodbye to the historic character. The new, fifth film will start production in September of this year.

In addition to the starring role, Stallone is also writing the script. Initially, it was rumored that he’d direct the film, but he declined.

The Story

The synopsis sees Rambo working on a ranch when his friend’s daughter gets kidnapped. Unable to turn a blind eye, he crosses the U.S.-Mexico border where he clashes with Mexico’s most bloodthirsty cartels.

Rambo 5 might also feature the character passing the torch to a new generation, the way Stallone’s other iconic character Rocky Balboa turned the franchise over to actor Michael B. Jordan in Creed. 

The End Of An Era

The first film First Blood was made on the small budget of $15 million more than 35 years ago and became an instant hit, making $47.2 million domestically. Three years later, Rambo: First Blood Part II came out and cemented the film’s cult status, making a staggering $150 million.

The Playlist

The third film didn’t live up to the franchise’s legacy and made only $53.7 domestically. Many thought this would be the end of Rambo, but similar to his on-screen character, Stallone is extremely hard to kill. Even after the disappointment of the fourth Rambo (and its $42.7 million in earnings), Stallone is still back for one more go.

Even if the story itself is not enough to draw people’s attention, his perseverance alone surely will.
