'Rambo 5' Will Go Out in a Blaze of Glory Says Sylvester Stallone

It's been a little while since we last heard anything about Rambo 5, which has also been known as Rambo: Last Stand. Sylvester Stallone has quite a lot on his plate at the moment, with The Expendables 2, Expendables 3, Bullet to the Head, and The Tomb all on the horizon. But the actor still plans to bring John Rambo's story to a close sometime in the future.

While at CinemaCon 2012 last week, the action icon talked about his plans for this long-gestating sequel, and revealed that John won't finish out his days alone, riding a tractor on some dirty old farm in middle America. Instead, he will grab his bow and head off on one last adventure.

"There's a volcanic eruption [brewing]. The magma of Rambo is coming to the surface. It's one thing where you lay down the final culmination of your life where you can articulate it, but also act on it where he realizes what his destiny really is. It's not to be a farmer, it's not to be obscure; it's to go out in a blaze of glory in a heroic fashion. But is he really doing it for himself or is he doing it because that's just his id? That's who he is."


So John Rambo will go out in a blaze of glory, which means he may die on screen, as Sylvester Stallone has hinted at in the past. The Mexican storyline we've heard about also seems to still be in play.

"I like the whole Mexican situation, what's going on down there. So I'm working on a formula for it right now."


Even though Sylvester Stallone seems quite committed to bringing fans Rambo: Last Stand, we probably won't see it until 2015 or 2016.

Rambo: Last Stand is in development and stars Julie Benz, Sylvester Stallone, Mickey Rourke. The film is directed by Sylvester Stallone.

    @addictionnonfatel i agree.. i think he just needs to start directing and writing action movies and not acting in them anymore. he's getting too old and he's going to get seriously hurt eventually

    Uh....I'm sure after he kills off John Rambo, Rocky Balboa is next! Stallone doesn't know when to quit! Here's a better idea, how about killing his movie career....

    I grew up loving Rambo. He is a straight forward character. A bad ass soldier. He still can get shot, hurt, captured, beaten, and even man handled. But in the end, he finds away to ignore the pain and do what is needed to finish the mission. A realistic bad ass soldier. But with issues. I thought Rambo 4 was enough to end the story though. I will watch anything new with Rambo, but I do not see the need to kill him. Rambo came to terms with he is who he is. A killing machine. A soldier who has not problem doing what is needed to finish the mission. That feeling of self worth combine with guilt of who he is, kept him from going home. First Blood, showed him always on the move since he got state side, looking up war friends, walking. Anything to stay away from home. That built up to the outcome with him at war with the local sheriff and ending up in prison. The novel actually had Rambo killed. With him living extended the story. Gave him the ability to grow and come full circle. Only left prison in the second film, cause it was to go back into Vietnam for POW's. After that movie, he wondered Thailand trying to find peace. Still finding fights, like the stick fight for money in Rambo 3, but living mostly a peaceful life, but still trying to avoid his past. That ended with him realizing he was a killing machine. But needed a good cause. But in Rambo, he was just like in 3, living a life but not being himself. He unleashed who was was for a good cause and saved some people. But in the end, knew he could not run from his past, but accept it. That meant returning home to face who he was, with who he is. And knowing he had a home to be safe, and not need to be the soldier within. But able to release it if needed. I thing a Rambo 5 would be a great story in, hoe does he handle being the killing machine at peace. And how does he know if a cause is worthy of unleashing the "beast" within. But I do not think he has to die to say the only way to escape who you are is to die. Rather see it end with him returning to the Army as a "Rambo" soldier trainer. Sounds like a better ending to a story, and a way to show full circle. If you can not change who you are by acting or ironing it. You end up making others around you just like you. The whole idea "Violence breeds Violence." He is what he is, so he makes it around him. If not in the act of war, training those for it. Sorry for the long rambling, but just hit a nerve for some reason. :)
