After wishing Tiger Shroff well for his planned remake of 1982’s Rambo, Sylvester Stallone has made it clear that he would not, ‘under any circumstances’, be involved with the project.

Addressing internet rumours about his appearance in the Hindi remake, to be directed by Bang Bang’s Siddharth Anand, Stallone’s representatives told Deadline that “any involvement in Tiger Shroff’s Rambo is not happening, under any circumstances”. Stallone has nothing against the project -- he publicly wished the team well on Instagram when it was announced -- but he wants them to do it ‘on their own’.

Stallone is currently focusing on the sequel to his 2015 film Creed, in which he reprised his iconic role as boxer Rocky Balboa, and went on to score an Oscar nomination.

Speaking to Deadline at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Tiger said that they’ve “made that character unique and so when (he will) portray Rambo (he doesn’t) want to take anything away from that. But at the same time, (they) want to give (their) own take. (They) don’t want to mimic it.”

The film is expected to release in 2018.
