Sylvester Stallone still planning Rambo 5
If his body holds up, Sylvester Stallone seems still keen to make Rambo 5...
Just mopping up a story we missed last week, here, concerning the state of the on-off Rambo 5. In the past, Sylvester Stallone said that he was keen to make a fifth Rambo movie (a script involving aliens was mooted at one point), before seemingly going off the idea. But of late, Stallone has appeared a lot more positive towards the project.
As reported by AFP, Stallone was in Rome on promotional duties for his next movie, Walter Hill's Bullet To The Head. And when asked about the status of Rambo 5, he said that "The Rambo thing, that's why I don't retire. I just see a guy unable to go home. He needs war and I see him dying there".
Which seems to pave the way for a new film. "If my damn body holds up, it'll be really good", said Stallone. "Otherwise it won't be Rambo fighting, it'll be Rambo fighting arthritis".
Stallone's got The Expendables 3 on the cards, and in 2013, he's reteamed with Arnold Schwarzenegger for the already-shot The Tomb. As we hear more on Rambo 5, we'll let you know...
