Rambo 5 may be happening after all. Or will it? Nope.

05.13.2010

Just last week, Sylvester Stallone essentially jammed a really huge knife into his famous screen war veteran. "I think Rambo's pretty well done," he said, preferring instead to focus on an EXPENDABLES sequel.

But then Slashfilm spotted this poster at Cannes, clearly indicating that the character would return (and in the same shirt from the last movie). Did Sly forget to tell the people who bankrolled the last RAMBO that he didn't plan on doing another? Were they optimistically hoping to lure him back by drumming up interest at the French film fest?

Apparently not. Stallone got AICN's Harry Knowles on the blower to set things straight. Bottom line: RAMBO V is deader than Richard Crenna.

At least to him. Sly says that he's inserting some additional footage into the upcoming Blu-Ray of RAMBO to tie things up... but he admits that the rights-holders of the character could theoretically make their own RAMBO movie(s) without him, which he gives his blessing.

Extra Tidbit: A Stalloneless RAMBO movie? Yeah, right. Might as well turn the character into a cheesy animated show instead. Oh, wait...

Stallone Is Awesome But He Lied

If Stallone had no intention of making a fifth Rambo no one could fault the man. However, he not only told the world he WAS making Rambo V, he gave specific details about the plot. I think its damn shitty of Stallone to taunt fans with a "Yes, Rambo will return" when he never had any intention to follow through. This simple fact ruins the whole "closure" aspect of the Rambo character that he is now trying to ram down the fans' throats. Don't kid yourself, Rambo IV did not give fans a

Don't kid yourself, Rambo IV did not give fans a fitting finale just because we see John J walking on U.S. soil, and if Stallone had kept his word, Rambo V would have been amazing. The way this whole Rambo V thing has played out is as shitty as the chick that promises you a happy ending only to deliver a handshake. Bullshit, Sly!

The ending isn't just RAMBO on US soil it's that he came to term's with what he is , He came full circle like Trautman said in 3. He was in a self imposed exhile to pay penence for his past the ending isn't that he just went home but that he could finally allow himself to go home. RAMBO's not the shoot a guy crack a joke type of action hero , When RAMBO pull's the trigger he has to live with the consequences of it.

They should DEFINITELY remake Rambo

First blood that is. The book is amazing and way darker then the original. Rambo kills like 30 guys in it. It would make such an awesome movie if done properly and following the source material.

"In 2012, Taylor Lautner will draw... First Blood."

Terrible idea, isn't it?

It's just blurry. Check the link. [link]

(Also, RAMBO 4 wasn't called RAMBO IV, and it's not purportedly coming in 2011, like this one.)

RAMBO 5

I loved the 4th Rambo, to me it was a breath of fresh air. I knew that Stallone is wanting to start something new and maybe this Expendables will begin something big for him, which I hope it does, but with all that star power I hope it doesn't crowd things up. As for Rambo 5 yeah I really hope they don't make it because it looked wrapped up in the 4th. But if I see a stallone rambo 5 in the future. I will be waiting in line with bells and whistles on.

STALLONE IS RAMBO

It would be stupid to try to make a RAMBO movie without STALLONE. As much as I would love to see another one If 4 is the end it's a pretty good one and hey theirs alway's the Expendable's to look forward to.

Whatever Stallone does is fine by me.

Rambo & Rocky Balboa proved that the man is fully capable of kicking the ass of guys that are 3x younger than him. If it ends them there, then he's atleast ending on high notes.

The last Rambo movie was great and was a great way to end the franchise. Let Rambo quietly sail into the sun. Everyone will get their "Rambo type" movie this summer with The Expendables and I am sure if the movie does well there will be a sequel. So this is fine with me. Stallone is a smart guy and knows what he is doing.

RAMBO IV should be the last

if everybody that Rambo IV wrapped up the storyline good, then that's fine by me.

Now let Rambo rest in peace.

I wouldn't get my hopes up for an Expendables sequel either action fans. He said in a very recent interview that the movie practically killed him and that he wasn't planning on doing any more actioners. As my esteemed colleague Night Owl stated recently to me however that women who have had kids and say "oh I will never have another kid cos it was such hard work" then a few months later they're pregnant again. So I think we can all agree that Stallone should get pregnant and keep the baby. No
