First, plans for Rambo 5 were to pit everyone’s favorite crazed soldier against a were-beast super soldier hybrid. Then Sylvester Stallone’s fans were like, “Seriously, bro?” So he eased off that idea and chose to pit Rambo against the deadliest force second only to were-beast super soldiers — Mexicans. Now there’s an update that these Mexicans may be even deadlier than Rambo can handle.
In an interview with Macleans, Stallone describes what he has in store for the film, “I’m dying to do another Rambo. He’s in Arizona on the border. It will involve him going into Mexico. I don’t think Rambo likes Mexicans.” Then asked if he plans to kill the character off, he responded, “Yeah.” Whoa. Of all the bodies to hit the floor, I’d never suspect that it be his.
The likelihood of Rambo 5 happening rests on whether or not The Expendables 2 is a big hit at the box office. Even then, the plot particulars to Rambo 5 could change should fans want to see a ninety-year old fight a terrorist cell someday.
