Sly ready to return!

02.04.2008

Somewhere, The Arrow is a very happy man right now. Sylvester Stallone has just signed a two-picture deal to produce, star and direct in two films for Nu Image/Millennium, the company behind RAMBO. And lucky for us, because Nu Image/Millennium signed an interim agreement with the WGA, production on the films can begin as soon as Stallone decides on a project. Right now Stallone and producers have not decided what either of the films would be but you can bet another RAMBO offering would certainly be one of the contenders. What you probably won't see if Stallone's rumored Edgar Allen Poe film as these projects were specifically marked as "action films" (though an Edgar Allen Poe action movie would certainly be interesting). One possibility that intrigues me is taking John Rambo into another genre. I heard Stallone mention somewhere (and of course now I can't find it) that he briefly flirted with the idea of doing a sci-fi RAMBO movie. Now would RAMBO VS. PREDATOR be completely insane or would that just be me? Although the original PREDATOR was very much a RAMBO VS. PREDATOR kinda movie. I guess my question to the readers would be whether you'd be interested to see John Rambo hop from a realistic world into a fantasy one or whether that breach of continuity would piss you off royally. And what would you like to see Stallone work on next?

Extra Tidbit: RAMBO's budget was a surprising $50 million.

THE ULTIMATE SEQUAL: TANGO AND CASH II

This is a film I'd love to see, old Sly back with old Kurt, who both having a revival. Let sly direct it and put in an epic crime story, with the two retired, and throw silly bad boys 2 money at it. Hell make it on the cheap and release straight to dvd will do me. So quotable.

Please, Sly, don't waste your time on a stupid remake of Death Wish. Please, just don't. If you feel the need to remake that movie just remember one thing: Get Carter. Although I actually enjoyed that movie, it did fail both critically and commercially. So if you feel the urge to remake Death Wish, just remember how Get Carter went.

SLY AND ARNIE

RAMBO was awesome! It's really a shame that the Governator won't make more movies because these two guys were the two biggest badasses of action flics ever! They should do a movie together and fight each other, or be partners and wreak havoc on someone! Poor bastard.

NICE

Cool news, would love another Rambo flick but want it to be a bit longer. This one should needed one more action sequence. Love the watch he wore in this film looked one mean mother.

More Rambo please.

I would love a new Rambo where he's back in the US along the lines of First Blood but with the mostly realistic mayhem of the newest film.

Salvage Alien Vs. Predator!

After AVP and that DIE HARDEST garbage, RAMBO was an awesome sigh of relief. My friend and I agreed that only the talented Stallone seems to have the motivation, influence, and funds to truly reboot the 80's. I don't think an AVP would tread on Schwarzenegger territory, either, considering that (as of now) that franchise can't touch PREDATOR.

So how about it, Sly? Bring back our favorite movie monsters? To quote my cohort, "the movie should be called, ALIENS VS. PREDATOR: I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF

What I'd finally like to see is...

a Dolan's Cadillac movie (with Stallone playing Dolan) that's been talked about for years. After seeing shades of him acting sorta bad in the beginning of Rambo, I'd like to see more.

NO MORE RAMBO

As much as I'd love to see another Rambo (the new one was awesome) it won't be happening. Stallone said it himself that he will not go back and do another rambo. Let's hope his new projects are on par with the action though. I would love to have him and Arnod Schwarzeneger (i butchered that) be in a new movie together.

A NEW DIE HARD INSTALLMENT

Title: McCLANE
Starring: Bruce Willis and Sly Stallone
Directed by: Sly Stallone

Since Sly has the amazing tendency of ending franchises on the perfect note, and since he is good friends with Bruce Willis...why not? The action sequences in RAMBO are far better than those in LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD; it just felt like so much more effort was put in to it. I mean, what is a DIE HARD movie with out that much blood?

I'm sure Stallone would be able to either play the villain or his partner in

More RAMBO Can Only Be A Good Thing

I loved RAMBO. This is the kind of war movie I'm interested in seeing right now- Good, bloody, escapism where an iconic hero provides a wish-fulfillment against real evils of our world. I stress the word REAL here because the key to John J Rambo's survival in the pop lexicon is that as outlandish as some of the scenarios he was placed in, he was always up against a very real enemy that we, the audience, had a desire to see punished- be it a hick, bully sheriff, the Viet Cong, Cold War

Rambo V would be beyond welcomed in my book. In fact, I'd love to see Brian Dennhey's Sheriff Will Teasle return at some point. I always felt Rambo had unfinished business in that town, even if it's just one scene where he rolls into Hope and finally gets that meal that kick-started this whole saga. Of course, the now retired Teasle would just happen to be seated and enjoying his grits and coffee. Then he looks up to see the ex-Green Beret standing before him. When the sheriff pushes away from the table, we see he has spent his life in a wheelchair since Rambo's last visit. That's the kind of material I want to see Rambo mixed up in. Throwing him into a different genre is a HUGE mistake and Stallone is much too savvy not to see that. But again, if he wants to return Rambo to the more fantasy action hero he was in part 2 and 3, against a real threat like the Taliban, or some extremist/terrorist group within our own borders- I'm there. Welcome home, John!

Arc

Thanks for repeating Mike. And no, no one said there will be a Rambo Vs Predator. Sly has made it clear that he doesn't want to step on Arnold's feet (when asked about getting into the Terminator series)

And anything with Rambo doing what he does best, I will take. He is the man!
He can fight Hannah Montana in 3D and I will pay for that.

Rambo was the most violent movie I have seen in a [link] I loved it
