Rambo 5 will be a reboot titled Rambo: New Blood, this time sans Stallone

So, it's come to this. A f*cking RAMBO reboot. I mean, I try to keep an open mind, I really do. But something about this seems like a bad idea.

Anyway, the film will be titled RAMBO: NEW BLOOD, and according to The Hollywood Reporter:

[T]he new reboot would not see Stallone return as the action hero, like he did in [the] 2008 outting, but would see a younger actor inhabit the role...looking at Rambo as a character akin to James Bond.

No sly? Really? What the f*ck. Then again, if they're going the James Bond route, I'm sure people had the same thoughts about recasting Sean Connery. So we'll see.

Anyway, the studios behind the film - Nu Image and Millennium Films - have tapped CRIMINAL director Ariel Vromen to helm the feature; however, they're still on the lookout for a new John Rambo to inhabit the role. That can't be an enviable task. Let's just hope they don't screw it up, but even if they do, it'll probably go down as a vague memory like the ROBOCOP or TOTAL RECALL reboots. Or one can only hope.

So what do you guys think? And who do would you cast as a young John Rambo?

Extra Tidbit: John Rambo actually dies at the end of FIRST BLOOD, the novel the first film is based on - they even filmed that ending for the first film as well.
