After all of the talk last year from Stallone about making a fifth Rambo movie, an about turnaround on the likelihood of that sequel happening comes as a surprise. Nevertheless, that's what the writer/director/star has told Empire about the fate of Rambo 5:
"I think Rambo’s pretty well done. I don’t think there’ll be any more. I’m about 99% sure," Stallone told the publication. "I was going to do it. I said I'd never talk about this, but with I feel that with Rocky Balboa, that character came complete circle. He went home. 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."
Because of Stallone's comments we've shifted the phase of Rambo 5 from In Development to Dead.

The story premise for the fifth Rambo movie has changed and surprisingly gone back to the original premise back when the project was first announced in the trades.
In a letter to Stallone Zone, Sly himself announces the news to his fans. "I’m letting you know that Rambo has changed course and the story about hunting the man/beast will be done using another character in the lead. RAMBO himself will be heading over the border to a violent city where many young women have vanished.
"There will be blood," states the man.
You might recall that, back in August of this year, the first announcement concerning Rambo 5 mentioned that the character would be headed to the American/Mexican border and involve human traffickers.- Stallone Zone. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Sylvester Stallone contacted Ain't It Cool News to correct Variety's report about what the premise of the fifth Rambo movie is. Sly told AICN that the trade got it all wrong: Rambo 5 isn't set on the Mexico border, it takes place in the Pacific Northwest and has the character teaming up with a black ops team to track down a killer that is nearly feral in his intensity to kill people. The working title of the film is Rambo: The Savage Hunt.
AICN has shared the voice recording of Stallone explaining the story.- Ain't It Cool News. Comment on this Scoop (0)
