Rambo 5!

It's been greenlit...


Quote:
John Rambo's officially readying for a fifth mission.

Nu Image/Millennium Films has greenlit the franchise's fifth installment, with Sylvester Stallone starring and directing, repeating his duties from 2008's "Rambo."

The upcoming project's storyline revolves around Rambo fighting his way through human traffickers and drug lords to rescue a young girl abducted near the U.S.-Mexico border. Production will start in the spring.

The film will be produced by Avi Lerner, Kevin King Templeton and John Thompson. Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short and Boaz Davidson will exec produce.

Stallone had indicated in interviews that a fifth Rambo was in the works. He teamed with Nu Image/Millennium on the 2008 project, which grossed $42 million domestically and $113 million overseas.

Nu Image/Millennium is in post-production on "Expendables," starring Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li and Mickey Rourke. The actioner's set for release on April 23 through Lionsgate.

I'm a huge Sly fan and think that he should have stopped the Rambo franchise with the last movie. Imho it was a great film and had an ending that worked for me.

I'm really sceptical about him doing another and think that it might be one film too much...though I REALLY hope to be proved wrong.

I kinda agree, the ending to the last film was good. What I would have liked to see was a film about how he re-integrates back into american society, almost full circle akin to First Blood. I can only presume that he will try and up the bodycount from last time around? How old will he be, the man is a beast?!

Will still be itching to watch this.

Perhaps this is the film he'll sacrifice himself for a small child!

Loved the last one so this is great news.

Let's have him busting Mickey Rourke out of an afghan prison while picking up Monica Bellucci along the way. I can dream

Hopefully it's as good as the last, last thing we want is a Stinker in the Rambo franchise. Even Rambo III is alot better and fun than some of todays pap.

I thought the last film was quite a good conclusion.

I just love the old school action. Shame there is so few movies out these days in this guise.

Rambo was never intended to be the final one in the series so I'm glad this has been greenlit.

Harry over at AICN has received new info from the man himself, the basic premise for Rambo 5 sounds a lot like Universal Soldier meets The Hunted:

The project is still at an early stage but is this really the right way to go?

I want the Rambo series to catch the Rocky's up, Rambo is by far my favourite character of the two.

John Rambo being the predator this time set around the area of the first film sounds like bringing it full circle.

Darn, Harsin beat me to it. Nevertheless I feel I could definitely work up some excitement now that they changed the supersoldier into some "half-human abomination".
