Is Sylvester Stallone finally going to give us Rambo V?

06.23.2014

Rumors of a fifth Rambo film have been hitting the net ever since RAMBO kicked our collective asses in 2008. The fact that people are still talking about it is a great testament to the film, I think. Stallone solidified an action icon with the original films, and continued the character arc into a fourth film that was both visceral and crowd-pleasing. The bar was set high with RAMBO and there have been talks of a fifth film that have plot lines ranging from an UNFORGIVEN-esque journey to something more in line with PREDATOR.  Hell, even a TV show was being considered!

With that said, it's about that time when rumors start swirling around of a RAMBO V again.  The latest seems to come from German distributor Splendid Film, in having purchased the rights, and releasing the following statement (roughly translated):

With 'Rambo V' Sylvester Stallone returns in his iconic role. This time he goes up against a Mexican cartel. Stallone, who has also written the screenplay, describes the new Rambo as his version of 'No Country for Old Men.' Like the last film, 'Rambo V' is produced by Avi Lerner ("The Expendables 1-3").

Whether or not this news will snowball into an actual film, we'll have to wait and see. Stallone looks like he's having a good time in the Expendables flicks, but he's certainly not getting any younger. One wonders if the oft-dreaded "reboot" is not too distant in John Rambo's future.

Sometimes a good man can't retire because people won't let him.

Rambo needs to come back. The last Rambo was a blast.

I can see Rambo as a retired vet living in Mexico, where the US can't find him. He is retired and just trying to live peacefully and alone. Then of course some drug cartel kills his girlfriend or causes trouble for his town and he takes them down Rambo style. A little cliche but if we see Rambo sawing people in half with a machine gun I am happy.

Also, I always wanted his story arc to come full circle. What if Rambo is living in a

Also, I always wanted his story arc to come full circle. What if Rambo is living in a town and people coming back from Afghanistan or Iraq are being mistreated, but they are also acting like jerks and ignorant assholes boasting about the people they killed. He knows their pain but he has been against senseless wars since that first movie. Would he help the vets get assimilated or turn a blind eye until they start causing trouble? Obviously it would be more of a drama than an action movie but I think that's what he means by Old Country, it wont be an action movie...

I think it should start with Rambo trying to live a quiet life and reconnect with his Dad... Bowie Arizona is quite close to the border so it is believable that the cartel could potentially be in the film... maybe they kill his Dad or something and that pisses him off?

Anyway, I think if done right that Rambo should finally get the peace he has wanted and die in the end of the film. It would really bring it full circle.

I have much more to say about it too... I have even considered writing my own screenplay for Rambo V. My uncle was a Vietnam Vet and I saw everything that he went through even into old age trying to forget about what he had seen and done. The Rambo films are very close to my heart.

He really should have done Rambo 4 and 5 before he Mickey Rourked his face. Rambo now looks like he's been melted by a fucking rocket launcher.

I will happily accept Rambo 4 to be the end of the series, with John coming "full circle", however I think there's wiggle room for a more definitive ending for the character.

Rocky however, has ended perfectly, so as long as he stays away from that, then we're good

The last Rambo definitely brought the character full circle but this could be a great epilogue which could conclude the story with his death.the premise sounds great. I'm really stoked. I just hope the marketing team does a great job. I can tell you right now as soon as mainstream audiences hear about this, they are t going to care about anything except Stallone's age (even though he doesn't look it and is in superior shape) and the fact that it's part V (a hang up I will never understand

I don't think the soul of cinema could survive a PG-13 Rambo. And since nothing is sacred anymore, there's no guarantee this'll be R.

I wanna see a Rambo where he goes off on the orderlies of a retirement home. Make it reminiscent of the cop abuse of first blood and he goes crazy thinking he is in a pow camp.

No!

Just.... no! The last one was perfect, best Sly movie since Cliffhanger and Demolition man! We donīt need a V, And even when I'm a big fan of Sly, some of his recent work are not good enough (EX2, BULLET, GRUDGE MATCH), so I don't want him to ruin RAMBO with a stupid script. "an UNFORGIVEN-esque journey", "his version of No Country for Old Men" naaah! C'on the last one was kind of that, an old Rambo closing the circle. Sly needs to make some different roles now he is near 70 years old.

Demo-Man was all cheese no substance. Yea if they continue with the vision of how they want to do it and not change things for the worse it could be great.

I agree Roger. Demolition Man was awesome. You guys just don't know how to use the three seashells.

I don't know if I really would want to see another Rambo film. I thought the last film gave the character, storyline, and franchise a satisfying ending.

Minimal to no dialogue would be great.

If he's describing it as no country for old men, that's how I would interpret that and I would be all for it. Very violent with Rambo being used as the "Angel of Death" if sorts. His hometown is Bowie, Arizona and that's a good 100 miles away from the border and a couple of hundred away from Juarez. Yea I can envision it in my head right now and I like what I see, cartel members cause destruction on our side if the fence. Think they're untouchable, US government does nothing about it, Rambo

I don't know. For me, Rambo 4 ended the character perfectly by giving him a peace of mind. Rambo the character deserves that.

RAMBO ended perfectly.

Not sure why we need another (hopefully it will be good) but RAMBO ended perfect: he came back to the U.S. and returned home. That is all that is needed.
