Sly Stallone confirms he is definitely not appearing in the Rambo remake

7 days ago

If there's one kind of war that Sylvester Stallone (or his character, John Ramo) has no interest becoming involved in, it's a rumor war. Recently, the suave, sneer-lipped action star told Deadline Hollywood that he is absolutely not participating in the Tiger Shroff-led remake of FIRST BLOOD, a rehash of the 1982 classic that started the RAMBO film series.

Stallone made himself abundantly clear by way of a spokesperson, who declared on behalf of Stallone that, “any involvement in Tiger Sharoff’s Rambo is not happening, under any circumstances.” Now, even though that statement could come off as a little harsh, Sly has also stated that he personally has nothing against the project, though he wants fans to understand, unequivocally, that he won't be a part of it. "I wish them well on their own," Stallone said.

Even if I think it's a shame that Stallone won't be involved in any capacity with the remake, I do understand what it's like to be stretched too thin across projects. Right now, Sly is hard at work on organizing the CREED sequel for MGM, and would rather dedicate his focus on that endeavor instead. In regard to the follow-up film for CREED, Stallone has hinted that Michael B. Jordan's Adonis could trade blows with the son of Ivan Drago, the Russian heavyweight who killed the tender-glove's father, Apollo Creed, in the ring during 1985's ROCKY IV.

So there you have it. Stallone is "yay" for ROCKY, but "nay" for RAMBO. Again, I think this is an admirable course of action for Stallone. I'd rather him whole-ass a CREED sequel than half-ass his involvement in a RAMBO remake. But what do you think? Are you still interested in the planned RAMBO reboot even though Stallone won't be involved? Let us know in the comments section below!

Licensed Bollywood Remake

Guys, the Tiger Shroff remake of First Blood is an officially licensed Bollywood version of the movie. The director previously remade Knight & Day as Bang Bang in Bollywood and found success and is repeating it with First Blood. Did anyone ask Tom Cruise if he was involved in the Knight & Day remake? No, because this is being remade in Bollywood not here in Hollywood.

Mixed feelings. I'm more of a Rambo fan than a Rocky fan. The last Rambo was excellent. Kind of disappointed not to see him crank out another one.

I am glad to read that Sylvester Stallone skips the First Blood remake. In all likelihood, Sharoff's remake exists simply to exploit the Rambo franchise's good name.
However, I welcome an updated First Blood. Potentially, the remake could be a very timely story. We have another generation of damaged veterans. The 1982 movie actually did a fine and memorable job of telling a returning warrior's story. I would not mind another First Blood that has invigorating action, profound insight, and

The 1982 movie actually did a fine and memorable job of telling a returning warrior's story. I would not mind another First Blood that has invigorating action, profound insight, and moving drama. After such a movie, I would not want a potentially exploitive Rambo: First Blood Part II, though. That movie started a long line of movies glamorizing and exploiting the Vietnam War. That cinematic fad was not always a good thing.

Creed Vs. Drago II... yuk

I enjoyed Creed, but the idea of the sons boxing is cheesy as hell. Adonis still has to go for the title. Do that story.

Stallone should return to Rambo as the new Col. Trautman.

who says its Dragos son? ;) Remember. Drago was at least 20 years younger than Rocky in Rocky 4.

This is too bad as Rambo 4 was a blast! I have zero interest in Rocky and even less for that Creed spinoff. Actually I have no interest in sports movie in general so I wished Stallone would have put the Rocky character to rest and brought back Rambo instead, especially with that rumored script set in America which would have echoed First Blood. First Blood is a much better movie than Rocky and any of it's sequels, it's just too bad that Part II and Rambo III were that bad.
