Rambo 5 A Reality

Published 7 years ago by

stallone returns to rambo Rambo 5 A RealityIt just goes to show – you can’t keep a good man down!

It looks like Sylvester Stallone is set to return to the role of John Rambo in… you guessed it, Rambo 5.

Lionsgate has appointed former Universal honcho Alli Shearmur to run the studio and one of the films in their production pipe line is Rambo 5.

Much like Rambo/ John Rambo (depending on where you live) it will be written and directed by Stallone. The fifth film in the mega-action franchise will shoot in Bulgaria and is expected to go before cameras reasonably soon.

The last Rambo made $113 million worldwide and it must have made a killing on DVD – there have been rumors circling since the release of the last installment, but many never thought that Stallone would pull the trigger on another movie. However, now that it’s on the Lionsgate production it’s a certainty.

Besides, Stallone has been quiet of late, I can only presume that he’s been hitting the gym and knocking out a screenplay.

I suppose if Arnold can pop up in Terminator Salvation, then Stallone can tie that bandanna once more.

Rambo: Fifth Blood anyone?

  1. I love Stallone movies. Let´s go see Rambo 5, 6 and much more.

  2. oh no…. please let it go….
    let rambo go…. its was a nice end….

    i don´t think sly will do another movie again……. he made his final point with “john rambo” and the last rocky flick…..

  3. I’m all for it. I really enjoyed the last flick and would love to see more. Its nice to see some good ol’ fashion rated R action.

  4. Eh, I’d rather they left the Rambo series alone. They did the old “delayed sequel” thing, it worked great, and they ended the movie very well with him coming home finally to be at peace.

    If they’re smart they’ll just leave it right there, going out on a high note.


  5. Sly fits the Rambo role so much better now with a little age behind him. The last installment was really an incredible surprise for me. I agree that they left it off right where they should have but a part of me would love to see the character return to the screen again. Either way works for me.

  6. I’m fine with this as long as he doesn’t attempt another Rocky movie. Rocky Balboa had amazing emotional impact on me (and I’d given up on Rocky after 3,4, and 5). To try to make a sequel to a movie that tied it up perfectly would just ruin it. As far as Rambo, he’s just a guy that blows stuff up and hardly speaks. Even if Stallone had a stroke they could make these movies well into his 80s ;)

  7. I agree with Vic & Mark. The last one was very well made and served for a much better ending than 3. I just don’t want them to try too much and make it suck. I mean Stallone is like 70 years old. They have to be very careful to keep it believable. Regardless, if this was my favorite series, I would want them to keep pumping them out.

  8. He looked good in the last one – and it wasn’t that long ago!

    He could pull it off.

    Remember the time when Hollywood wouldn’t hire Stallone?

    How times have changed!


  9. You’re right. He did a great job of making Rambo more brutal. He stuck to the essence of what made the character work. Did he write or direct any of the others?

  10. Stallone wrote or co-wrote all the films – including one with James Cameron and he directed the last one (4)


  11. I knew Stallone would do another Rambo,,,

    He’s held up a lot better than Arnold.
    They won’t be digitally adding his face to Roland Kickenger… Lol

    I would sure see a Rambo5 over RoboCop reboot or even Iron Man 2/3D/Imax…

    The ending really (imo) opened up a great opportunity,,,
    To have some conflict at home,,,
    Maybe HLS will consider him a terrorist ???

  12. @ 790
    You called this one when Rambo was in theaters. i remember you saying then that they were going to start another one soon.

    Personally I thought the franchise would be ending, even if they were planning another one I never expected it to go into production.

  13. Thanks Stan-Lee,,,
    Unlike my source’s at paramount, I have good intel on the Slyster,,,
    I would expect a controverisial storyline involving something big…
    Should be great. 8-)

  14. Lots of films end up on a studios production slate .
    At best we know its a proposed project ,
    A possible project .
    News that it might happen doesnt mean it will .
    I want to hear what Stallone has to say before I believe it.

  15. This is good news!! I love a great action flick that shows no remorse for being what it is: a shoot-em up, blood-soaked action film. Rambo was all of these, yet had a good storyline as well. I welcome a 5th film, even if it’s HALF as good as the last one!!

  16. The thing I loved best about the latest Rambo movie is that it’s got the most realistic depiction of the ballistics effects of .50-cal rounds. Most other movies do not show .50-cal rounds cutting through people and stuff like that.

    Heck, in Iron Man, that .50-cal didn’t even dent the Mk. 1 at it was a lowly rifle that broke the drive belt!

    I hope the next Rambo film will be similarly brutal. A bit more Barrett M107 and other such cool weapons, please. And that titanium knife from previous Rambo movies too.

  17. Why not another one?? The last one was amazing. Bring it on Sly, can’t wait to see it!

  18. GO FOR IT!!! I do agree it was a good ending in his last movie but who knows rambo 5 could have a better ending to wrap the series up.

  19. sylvester stalone is amazing i love his movies. I like mucher the ”rambo 3” there hi was amazing

  20. And rambo go!!! I am waiting fo to see th next sylvester stalone movie of ”RAMBO’S MOVIE” the rambo 6

  21. sorry for the words
