It’s seemingly not over until it’s over for Vietnam vet John Rambo. Sylvester Stallone is set to return for a fifth installment in the Rambo franchise, I understand. There were whispers he may also direct but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

While Stallone’s participation hasn’t been confirmed by reps, Avi Lerner’s Millennium is launching sales on the project in Cannes with a tentative shoot date set for September of this year. Stallone is understood to be working on the script and his Expendables collaborator Lerner will produce.

In the fifth episode of the franchise, when the daughter of one of his friends is kidnapped, Rambo, who has been working on a ranch, crosses the U.S.-Mexican border and quickly finds himself up against the full might of one of Mexico’s most violent cartels.

The lucrative Rambo franchise launched in 1982 with First Blood and a fifth installment has been mooted for some time, despite the actor previously expressing reservations about a return. Stallone, who starred in and directed the last episode of the series in 2008, is currently working on Creed II. UK trade Screen International first broke the news.

Previous stories had reported the Rambo franchise would be rebooted without Stallone involved. The 2008 sequel was surprisingly awesome. If that film is Stallone's final appearance as John Rambo we all can be proud leaving it there. If a Last Blood gets made I hope it's on the same level or better.

Remember in Rambo III how the Mujahideen were the good, GALLANT, and heroic guys?

Re: Rambo 5 in the works. With Stallone.

As much as I liked the last one, I think they should of just stopped there. Stallone is 71 now.

If you're gonna do a sequel to a Stallone movie, can we get Demolition Man 2 instead?

It's not like Stallone set out to make a masterpiece in Rambo II, III, or IV. You would have seen those movies because it was Stallone; you'll see this movie because it's Stallone.

or.....OR....Can we get both? :lol

I would like a sequel to Demolition Man, the Specialists, and Cobra. But, if all I get is a Rambo V I will be ok.

Re: Rambo 5 in the works. With Stallone.

back to the future and godfather is probably the only two franchises that wernt completely milked to death.

die hard = overdone
rocky = overdone
rambo = overdone at this point
terminator = overdone
alien = overdone
LOTR = overdone after the hobbit shite
pirates of the Caribbean = overdone
fast and furious.....doesnt really need mentioning
mission impossible = overdone
matrix = shouldnt of been more than one film, forced into a trilogy. (surprised we havnt seen more of these films yet though)
jason bourne = overdone
indiana jones = shouldnt of been brought back, 2008 film was shit and new film in the works.
scream = overdone
star wars = arguable to each film's quality but its a cash cow.

honorable mention
toy story = original writers have left, new film due for 2019 even though it concluded itself in toy story 3.



they always find a way to bring it back even though there is nothing left to tell.

I'll watch it. Though I've never seen any of the Rambo movies. All I know is that it was a huge cultural marker in Pakistan.

Re: Rambo 5 in the works. With Stallone.

I'm looking forward to this. I remember when Rambo 3 came out and my friends and I determined that Afghanistan had the most syllables of any word he used. Will there be a drive for 5 this time? ;)
