Wait - There IS Another New Rambo Movie Coming in 2011?
by Alex Billington

Wait, wait, wait… what the heck is going on here? If you remember, a few weeks ago we reported a big story about Sylvester Stallone himself saying, to Empire magazine, that: "I think Rambo's pretty well done. I don't think there'll be any more. I'm about 99% sure." Well, maybe that 1% slipped through, as I ventured through the Cannes Marketplace showfloor earlier today with Peter from SlashFilm and we picked up a new promotional flyer (and saw a poster on their wall) at the Nu Image / Millennium Films booth for Rambo V (see above). It doesn't say anything except "Coming 2011" on the back. So is it actually happening anyway?
We don't really know what is going on, and nobody else seems to know either, but we'll of course keep you updated. There's a possibility that Millennium had some contract with Stallone and is forcing him to return to make another, despite his desire to leave and work on other franchises like The Expendables (hence his statements). Or, although this is much more unlikely, there's a possibility that Nu Image hasn't been told by Stallone yet that he's not going to make Rambo V, and they're selling a (dead) film that will never actually get made. Who really knows if we'll see Rambo V or not, but we hope to get to the bottom of all this soon!
Update: After this news first broke, Ain't It Cool News got in touch with Stallone and asked him what's up with all of this. His answer was a plain and simple: "NO FUCKING WAY." As I predicted above, Stallone says he has "no clue" what's up with this poster and thinks that "it could be the rights holders trying to raise ludicrous funds to get Sly back in front of the camera. Sly said, 'Maybe, but it ain't happening.' He then told me that the folks behind those posters essentially said that if Sly didn't do it - someone else would. And Sly seems fine with that." Rambo without Stallone? Will that even work? I doubt it, but we'll find out soon.

I'd rather see another Rocky than a Rambo except that I'd rather see neither than one or the other.

Rambo, John J. The greatest.
chrisbo on May 13, 2010
they need to stop playing with my emotions... is there going to another Ramdo or what... I CANT TAKE IT!
Roderick on May 13, 2010
I could go for another Rambo movie. The last one was pretty cool and strangely, Stallone has grown into this role a bit better now than I had expected. Let's see him in New York killing terrorists or something on a larger scale.

More likely that Nu Image/Millennium Films are trying to determine if there is industry demand for Rambo V.

Send him to Mexico!

You saw a poster on the wall; this is not news. The man said it was dead. It's dead.
Numark on May 13, 2010
I liked the idea they had for the new one. I wouldn't mind paying to sit through more Rambo skull-crushing. But of course-- this one should definately have him die.
Cracky on May 13, 2010
It's not happening. This is leftover marketing material. Stallone is on record saying he is done, with the character.
Dave Lister, J.M.C. on May 13, 2010
Rocky vs. Rambo. Now there's a movie I'd pay money to see.
Dave on May 13, 2010
@14 Wow! That would be so amazing!!!
Quaked2023 on May 13, 2010
I think it was probably taken out of context. The 'its pretty much done' quote from Sly. I'm sure he meant after this current one hes working on, there won't be any more. The media misquotes shit all the time, we shouldn't be that surprised.
Bauzer on May 13, 2010
I really hope we get this. Why not let Sly keep his momentum going? his recent movies have been a blast. if he has a story for Rambo, I'm very much willing to pay money to see it. same goes for another Rocky movie
Colt on May 13, 2010
oh cmon!! is there or isnt there another rambo?!!
8=D on May 13, 2010
Pfft #14 theres no contest Rambo would just shank him, or blow his head off, or lure him into a forest and put wooden sticks through his knees, or pick him up from behind and rip his throat out..or...or..yeeeah.

@16. That's what I got from his comment. Since the project is probably being filmed or finished filming and is just in a can somewhere waiting for the market he probably ment this coming one was the LAST film. The last Rocky was good I thought. For what it is. If you go into an action movie expecting to start crying over the emotional love interest that splits Rambo between his killing frenzy of awesome and some chick that has nice boobies, then you're an idiot.
Hedgehog on May 14, 2010
really do we need to goto this well again Sly? please make the madness stop and just work on new projects like the Expendables now that looks like a good fun action packed movie!
healthy v on May 14, 2010
We shall Just have to wait for updates.
Cineprog on May 14, 2010
#21, and Rambo wasn't a "good, fun, action-packed" movie?...i'd say that's exactly what it was. I'm all for another one.
Colt on May 14, 2010
This isn't going to happen.
casting couch on May 15, 2010
I think Rambo should do one last one where he hunts down Osama Bin Ladin...The movie should be focussed around another attack by Osama Bin Ladin that hits Rambo peronally, and he is dispatched to Pakistan to look for Osama Bin Ladin This would be killer!!! and in the the end, he cuts his freakin head off!!! we can only wish, it would be awsome to see on the big screen!!!
David on Jun 23, 2010
No stallone, no Rambo. Simple. I think the last one was fine as is, done, finished. Same goes for Rocky. I would have had Rocky knock out that fool at the end but die in the ring and end it all but oh well.
Johnny Neat on Jul 28, 2010
The 2011 movie is probably going to be fucking awesome. I can't wait till it comes out. I recomend this movie to anyone who likes action movies. If you don't watch these movie Rambo is going to cut your fucking head off bitch.
Manuel Carson on Jul 30, 2010

Leegallego on Jan 19, 2011
Rambo - a cult movie! The last part very much. Sylvester Stallone, as always inimitable. Incidentally, http://www.usemeplz.com I found also footage not included in the movie! It was very interesting to watch.
Elen Sorpio on Apr 3, 2011

sweet rambo mash up on Aug 25, 2011
Hey, check out a music video by a band called 12 Stones!!! The song is called "Rambo." My GOD! That guy looks SO MUCH like a young Sly!!!!
Txgungirl on Aug 27, 2011
Well a person I know had there car bought so it could be used in an scene on the new rambo movie...I feel an new movie would be great...
Spookgiz1 on Sep 3, 2011
If sly is not in the new movie I. Will not buy it!!!!!
Optimuscreation on Nov 6, 2011
I give Sly alot of credit . The last Rambo movie where he goes to Burma to save church missionaries looked as the most authentic ass kicking movie I had ever seen . At the end he is shooting Burmese soldiers and their arms and legs were blowing off and it looked oh so real.
Horwarthchristian on Dec 28, 2011
C'Mon guys! He had been trying to make it home since '82. He finally did. He got his closure and is finally at peace with himself. That is a solid ending to the franchise. Any Rambo made after would come across as a gimicky attempt to cash in on something that needs no further story line.
