First the next James Bond film got canned, then news of a Hollywood studio shutting shop crept up on the web, and now Sylvester Stallone has decided to not make the fifth of his action adventure series — Rambo.
The Hollywood superstar who was set to reprise his iconic role in the fifth part called ‘Rambo V: The Savage Hunt’ changed his mind, saying the story had changed course, reported Empire magazine online.
“I think Rambo’s pretty well done. I don’t think there’ll be any more. I’m about 99 per cent sure. I was going to do it. But for Rambo to go on another adventure might be, I think, misinterpreted as a mercenary gesture and unnecessary. I don’t want that to happen,” he said.
“I’m very happy with the last Burmese episode, because I didn’t pull any punches on it. I wanted it to be what civil war really is — rough. You can’t candy coat it, and where do you go from there? So that’s going to go,” he added.
However, the actor is not completely done with Rambo, as he is currently working on a new director’s cut of the fourth film that will add 12 minutes of footage, including a surprising outburst of loquaciousness for the mumbling man of action at the movie’s beginning.
The ‘Rambo’ story may have ended, but the 63-year-old star is ready to start a new franchise based on his upcoming film feature ‘The Expendables’.
The movie is yet to release but the actor has already started working on a sequel. “We are very serious... we’re already working on a (Expendables) sequel,” said Stallone.
