Stallone Says That Rambo is 'Done' & There Won't Be Another
One of the biggest, and strangest, news stories of last year was one about Sylvester Stallone's Rambo V: The Savage Hunt, his fifth movie in that action series that would introduce some sci-fi to the franchise. Stallone seemed pretty intent on making another sequel, even going so far as to clarify that the story had changed to being about "heading over the border to a violent city," as of last November. Well, found in the latest issue of Empire are some new quotes, re-published by TheShiznit (via ComingSoon), from Stallone himself that stating that the Rambo franchise is finished and that there will no longer be a fifth movie.
"I think Rambo's pretty well done. I don't think there'll be any more. I'm about 99 per cent sure."
Although it's unclear (since we're not in Stallone's head) why he's decided to stop after developing another sequel for so long, speculation is that he's so confident in other projects like Expendables that he doesn't need to rely on that franchise anymore. "We are very serious... we're already working on an [Expendables] sequel." So if you're a Rambo fan you better be content with the way Expendables looks, because that will probably be filling in for Rambo. Stallone has a few other action projects in development, but it looks like he's finally decided to leave Rambo and Rocky behind. It's time to move on to bigger and better, I say!
