Stallone Abandons Rambo
SYLVESTER STALLONE has abandoned plans to bring his iconic RAMBO character back for a fifth time - work on another movie in the action series has been scrapped.
The actor resurrected Rambo in 2008 to battle the Burmese army in the fourth installment, 26 years after the action hero made his big screen debut in 1982's First Blood.
Stallone previously announced plans for Rambo V and began scouting locations for the fifth film, but the star has now revealed the follow-up has stalled and he's "99 per cent sure" the character won't return.
He tells EmpireOnline.com, "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 not necessary. I don’t want that to happen.
“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 (Rambo V) going to go.”
