Sly Stallone just posted a cryptic photo on twitter of his desk in his home office. He showed where he does the writing of his scripts. Sly doesn’t use a computer for writing scripts? Ha! I’m sure he uses a computer, though.
If you look closely at the script, you can see that Rocky has some dialogue on it. Is that a script for “Rocky 7” or the Creed spin-off film??? Probably the Creed spin-off film, I would think and Sly is helping out with the writing.
Sly also confirms two more films on twitter:
He confirms he’s doing one last Rambo film after “Creed” and then he’s gonna do a film about mobster, Gregory Scarpa.
I’m glad Sly finally confirmed one last Rambo film and I’m sure it’s gonna be badass. I did like the Rambo film that was released in 2008 but it needed to be longer. I’m sure the next film will be longer and even more violent than the last one. I’m sure Sly will grow out his long hair again for the Rambo role. Will Sly direct the last Rambo film himself, though? Honestly, I hope not ’cause while I’m a huge fan of Sly, I don’t think he’s the greatest director in the world, though. He should get someone else to direct the final Rambo film if he wants it to be great.
Here’s what I think is gonna happen to Rambo in the final film. SPOILER ALERT: Rambo dies. Ha!
Yeah, Sly said before that he would be willing to kill Rambo off in order to end the series. Rambo was originally supposed to die in the first one but of course, they had to change the script so Rambo can live for the sequels.
I’m still a huge fan of Sly though and look forward to every new movie he comes out with.
I haven’t made a Sly Stallone post here in a long time but now that he finally has something worthy to post, I had to post it here. Sly just said he is dying to do one last Rambo movie, and the plot will involve him being between the borders of Arizona and Mexico.
He talks about the new Rambo film at the very end of this interview.
You should read the rest of that interview as well, it’s a good interview. I agree with his thoughts on today’s action heroes on how it isn’t what it used to be back in the 80’s. There are some good action movies that come out today, but today’s action films are full of CGI and special effects. It wasn’t the way the old days filmed action movies.
I’m glad Sly is thinking about one last Rambo movie. Hopefully, the next film will be LONGER and more brutal than the last one.
Many people don’t know this, but other than being an actor, writer, director, & bodybuilder, Sylvester Stallone is also a business man. He was the one who helped start the “Planet Hollywood” restaurant with other movie stars. He started his own magazine in the 90’s for a while called, “SLY”, magazine. He also started the “Instone LLC” business which is a company that sells healthy supplemental products for bodybuilding/fitness. Not sure if he still has that in business or not.
Sly’s next business adventure, that he will start his own fashion clothing line for men. It will be mostly aimed for men around Sly’s age, but I’m sure people all ages could buy his stuff from there. Sly’s new clothing line will start next year in 2012. The clothing that the business will sell, will be based on the “Rocky” and “Rambo” movie characters. His goal with the company is that he wants men of his age to look like a “Rebel and a gentlemen”.

Well, Sylvester Stallone himself responded to “Rambo V” rumours immediately after the poster was spotted at Cannes. Sly himself tells AICN, that he’s definitely done with Rambo for good. However, he says Miramax can feel free to go on without him if they want to continue the franchise.
More on it here:
Does this mean that there will be a Rambo “prequel” or a “reboot” on the way? I would prefer a “prequel” of First Blood, instead of a “remake”. A prequel to “Rambo: First Blood”, the first one would be interesting. They could hire a younger actor to play John Rambo. A younger actor that looks similar to Sly. It be interesting if a Rambo prequel actually shows his days during the Vietnam War. “Rambo V” without Sly starring as Rambo and him not directing wouldn’t work. So this leaves open the possibility of a “prequel” or a “remake” is on the way.
If you think Rambo can’t go on without Sly, maybe it can. “Terminator: Salvation” went on without Arnold being in the lead, and that film was successful. So maybe it can work, never know.
When Sly Stallone announced publicily, he is retiring Rambo, he said he was “99.9 %” sure. Meaning that it’s not “definite” that he will retire the character. Seems like it was a trick all along ’cause an official “Rambo V” poster has been spotted at Cannes film festival (pictured above). Notice the Miramax logo under the poster, that means it’s official that “Rambo V” is coming.
More on it here:
Sly must of came up with a story that would work for “Rambo V”. Either that or Miramax didn’t want Sly to retire Rambo so they paid him more to do another one?
In a surprising move, Sylvester Stallone has announced to Empire magazine, that Sly has retired Rambo. The good news is, Sly is already working on a sequel to, “The Expendables”. The upcoming action flick that is about to hit theaters this summer in August.
More on it here:
It’s kind of too bad that there won’t be another Rambo, but it’s great that Sly wants the “Expendables” to be his next big franchise.
What’s the reason Sly wants the “Expendables” to have a sequel this early? Sly already started working on the sequel even before the first one came out. My bet is that he wants Sly, Arnold and Bruce Willis to star the leading roles in the sequel. Arnie and Bruce only had a small cameo in the first one, but maybe Sly wants them to be in throughout the next movie? Will “Expendables 2” be Arnold’s comeback to leading roles in Hollywood once his governor run is over? All we can do is hope and cross our fingers.
Maybe Sly will also try to get Jean Claude Van Damme and Kurt Russell for the sequel as well. I know those two turned the first movie down, but maybe they will agree with the sequel, who knows. Anything is possible.
This video is so sweet, that I just had to post it. A film maker films a small documentary where he visits the film location, Rambo ranch, which is seen at the very end of 2008’s, “Rambo”. The film maker then walks through the same ranch that was seen in the movie. The film maker even interviews the owner of the ranch. He asked the owner questions on how Sylvester Stallone hired the owner to film the movie on, and all that.
Like Sylvester Stallone or not, he is a creative and talented film director. Sly tries his best to make his movies realistic.
Enjoy the video below.
Sylvester Stallone, wrote an open letter to Stallonezone fans, announcing that he has changed the story to, “Rambo V”. Sly says to his fans that he won’t be doing the plot mixed with sci-fi, where Rambo hunts down this half human and half monster.
Sly is doing the plot where Rambo goes to a border to find missing women that disappeared from America. He’s going back to the plot idea he had before.
Read it here:
Sly obviously reads the internet, quite a lot if he is sitting here reading feedback by people. Sly said in the letter he is a supporter of the Stallonezone fan site, so he obviously reads the message board daily, noticing he says, “Szoners”.
I like the finding missing women plot better than the sci fi idea. I like both plot ideas, but Rambo finding missing women seems more realistic though.
I’m glad Sly says there will be blood and it’s going to be a hard R rating like the last Rambo.
Sly’s a good man, he knows what his fans wants and I love how he pays attention to them!
New interview with former Rambo star, Brian Dennehy who played Sheriff Will Teasle. This is recent and very new. Although Brian is old now, he still looks like he did back in “First Blood”, he hasn’t aged a bit, in my opinion.
He says he hasn’t seen the other “Rambo” movies, which is either he is telling the truth or it’s just a polite way of saying he doesn’t like the other “Rambo” films out of respect for Sly.
I hope he agrees to return to “Rambo 5” if Sly asks him.
Sly has been discussing about doing a “Rambo 5” ever since the fourth one came out. Well, look like he is done talking about it and actually making it happen for reals!
The plot for “Rambo 5” will be about Rambo, on a rescue mission to save a little girl that was kidnapped by human traffickers and drug lords on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Stallone is currently working on “The Expendables” which is set for a April 23rd, 2010 release date.
Great news! Lets hope the next Rambo will be much longer than the last one. Lets also hope it will be bloody violent like the last one. Lets also hope Rambo will be shirtless in this one as he wasn’t in Rambo 4. I also hope they keep the original Jerry Goldsmith theme song for the film.
Rambo 4 did leave open for another movie, so you knew another one was coming anyways.
I think Sly is doing 6 Rambo movies to catch up with the 6 Rocky’s, I think that’s his plan.
