rambo 5 sylvester stallone Rambo 5 Has Been Greenlit! [Updated]

I really enjoyed last year’s Rambo which saw an older and more bitter Sylvester Stallone join a team of mercenaries to lay down the pain in war-torn Burma. Their mission, besides destroying a ton of bad guys, was to rescue aid workers.

He was as bad-ass as ever and at the end, many fans just wanted more. Fortunately, ever since that movie banked $113 million worldwide on a $50 million budget, there’s been talk of another installment.

At the beginning of the year, Stallone talked about it again and mentioned that it’s going to happen and that they were still deciding on where the film should take place, either in America or another foreign location.

Fast forward to today and the fifth Rambo has been greenlit! Reportedly, the story of the next Rambo killing spree follows the warrior as he takes on human traffickers and drug lords to rescue a young girl along the U.S.-Mexico Border.

[UPDATE: After several updates, we have the official synopsis for Rambo 5 and information on what it’s based on – Click to read about the story of Rambo V: The Savage Hunt]

Sounds good to me!

I wonder if we’ll see him go solo on this one or fight with some allies like his last outing. That sniper who helped in out in last year’s Rambo was pretty cool and it allowed for Stallone to get close and personal on some evil folks… then again he gets up and personal on a lot of his enemies regardless so I guess it’s a moot point…

Production is set to start in the spring, near the release of his current project which has entered post-production, the eagerly-anticipated film, The Expendables.

Since The Expendables may turn out to be PG-13, it’ll be nice to know we have another Stallone R-rated adult action film coming our way in the near future.

Are you psyched for another Rambo adventure?

The Expendables hits theaters April 23, 2010.

  1. Just the news i wanted :) I really enjoyed the uber-violence in Rambo 4, it was, well, actually, quite funny and way over the top, just the way i like my action movies.

  2. Thank the gods for Stallone. He knows action so well. Rambo 4 had its’ flaws but whatever. I know a good movie when i see but sometimes a violence fest like Rambo 4 or Shoot ‘em Up is in order.

  3. I didn’t read anything it being in 3D. I really hope he does this in 3D.


  5. The more Rambo the better…

    He should have an apprentice, or an adopted kid that he rescued, and take over the reigns, so we get more Rambo.

  6. Rambo V will probably be called ‘R5′, with all the abbreviations lately (Saw’s the ultimate example for that) ;)

    Anyway, loved every Rambo movie, including last year’s. But it would be nice to see him out of the woods again, like in First Blood. Rambo goes urban ;)

  7. Sounds great to me! Rambo “4″ was a great action film; it left me wanting some more. Sly has made a nice comeback since he released Rocky Balboa. I look forward to him continuing his success with THE EXPENDABLES and RAMBO 5.

  8. “I’m comin’ to get you!”

    Bring it on! I’d love to Rambo go up against someone with equal skills in guerilla warfare. Both could have allies to help but get taken out and leaves just the 2 a–kickers. Rambo gives his foe some patriotic speech and they join forces to take out the druglord that hired the guy (or gal) to take out Rambo. The next few years are looking great for movies.

  9. anyone think Rambo is one of those characters that is fated for an ill end. one of those not meant for society characters like that old dude in shawshank. i think stallone was searching for an exit line for one of his characters not unlike rocky. (maybe not a great film but i liked the way it said goodbye to the character,, i hope lol) rambos last exit felt forced and very un-crazy war vet.

  10. im sorry but sylvester stallone is already way too old to make another rambo movie. get somebody much younger like 20 to 28 years old with a large muscular physique and better english language skills.

  11. Finally the confirmation :D
    And I’ve also been hoping for a Bad Boys 3, so this day turned out to be a good day. Rambo IV really rocked !

  12. yeah baby!

  13. I wonder if we will meet Rambos father this time.
    They kind of hinted that last time .

  14. This is great news. I’ve wanted to see that Mexico/drug-trafficker story since I heard about it on the special features of the Rambo DVD. Stallone described it as (paraphrasing here) a real nightmare of a story — I take that to mean it’ll be intense.

  15. Holy Biscuits. THIS BETTER NOT BE IN 3D.

  16. I knew this would be greenlit, it was just a matter of time. I’m kinda hoping we see someone from his family, weather it be his Father or some son he never knew he has and his parents were raising him, something. But a badass action movie would work just fine for me too.

  17. Call me sensitive or what, but the nightmarish violence in Rambo really turned me off. I just felt sorry for all these kids and women being ripped apart and used as playthings and target practice – the captives whose feet were being bitten off by boars – though it did remind me, man, horrible things are still happening elsewhere in the world to innocent people, which I guess was the point.

    Still, Rambo could have used more slow scenes. If this movie is all violence again, and in that I mean the good guys get theirs as much as the bad guys, I don’t know that I will watch it. I got the message already from Rambo.

  18. However let me say one thing though. Sylvester Stallone still ROCKS as Rambo, though.

  19. @Phil G

    I’ll take realistic, gory disturbing violence over the sanitized, no-consequences violence of PG-13 movies any day.


  20. Amen to that Vic :D

  21. So is this the one where Rambo goes on a rampage when he doesn’t get his Social Security check?? :-D

  22. Sylvester Stallone has 62 years old, but he still with a very good shape at this age. I think that it will be a great movie.

  23. I’d like to see him take on castro’s army or bin laden… Would be hilarious.
