Expendables 3 and Rambo 5 updates
Sylvester Stallone is set to be busy, with new Expendables and Rambo movies looking like they're moving ahead...
It's not been a good year thus far for some of the leading lights of The Expendables franchise. Both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone have had new films releases over the past few weeks - The Last Stand and Bullet To The Head - and both have struggled badly at the box office. Bruce Willis should fare better with A Good Day To Die Hard, out this week, but The Expendables may yet turn out to be the franchise that keeps delivering for the trio.
Perhaps unsurprisingly then, it looks as if the two year cycle between Expendables movies is set to continue. Nu-Image and Millennium have announced that The Expendables 3 will be shooting this coming summer, with most of the cast back on board. There's been no word on a director yet.
After that, it looks as if Rambo 5 may yet still be on the cards. At the recent Berlin Film Festival, the company apparently had posters out in force for one final Rambo outing. If it is finally happening, then it may become Stallone's priority once The Expendables 3 is in the can.
