Because the world really needs another Rambo film… or perhaps it’s the fact that Sylvester Stallone simply cannot let go of the characters that made him an action movie star 30 odd years ago, today we learn that he has announced the production of a forthcoming 5th movie in the Rambo film franchise.
Turning to Twitter to make the announce, the actor has revealed that the title of the film will be Last Blood. So does this mean the franchise will finally come to an end? Well considering how long Stallone has managed to stretch out this movie franchise, I wouldn’t be surprised if Rambo: Last Blood isn’t the last. Hey the old guy still has to make some money right?
“After months of speculation, Sylvester Stallone has finally announced the title for the fifth (and seemingly final) “Rambo” movie, “Rambo: Last Blood.”The actor simply tweeted earlier this week:
Doing Scarpa based on Gangster Greg Scarpa after LAST BLOOD RAMBO…
Seven years have passed since Stallone last reprised the role of Vietnam vet John Rambo. The last film, “Rambo,” earned $113 million worldwide. Since 2008, he’s talked about both retiring the character (who first appeared in David Morrell’s 1972 novel “First Blood”) for good and bringing him back for a last hurrah. Stallone apparently decided on the latter as he’ll be writing and directing and “Rambo: Last Blood,” in addition to starring in the film. Stallone will be returning to another familiar franchise this month. He also tweeted that he’s headed to Philadelphia to play Rocky Balboa for the seventh time in director Ryan Coogler’s “Creed.” He’ll play the trainer of Apollo Creed’s grandson, portrayed by Michael B. Jordan. Coogler last directed Jordan in 2013’s critically acclaimed “Fruitvale Station.”
So there we have it. Another Rambo is on its way. I wonder if he will be driving around in a machine gun armed wheelchair?
