After a disappointing box-office performance of The Expendables 3, it looks like Sylvester Stallone may be ready to move onto another project: a fifth Rambo film, which rumors indicate will be titled Rambo: Last Blood. The fourth installment in the series, simply called “Rambo,” was released in 2008, two decades after Rambo III.
In the last film, many fans felt that the troubled Vietnam War veteran John Rambo got a proper send-off, and that Rambo was a good movie with which to end the series. At the end of the story, the former Special Forces soldier was seen walking down the road towards a house, where it is assumed that someone would be waiting for him – although it was not revealed or hinted at as to who that might be.
Despite the apparent closure, six years later, it seems that Stallone has other plans for the character. It is important to recall that the actor and director never explicitly stated that the 2008 movie was the final entry in the series, however, although he previously hinted at it. More recently, he has expressed interest in continuing the story.
Details are sketchy at the moment as to what the new plot may be. At one point, Stallone discussed the possibility of John Rambo being pitted against a Mexican drug cartel. A 2009 rumor suggested that the fifth Rambo film would be an adaptation of the novel “Hunter” by James Byron Huggins, for which Stallone owns the film rights.
Judging from the rumored title, it seems safe to assume that Rambo: Last Blood may be the final entry into the saga of John Rambo. As with the 2008 installment, Stallone will be writing the script and directing the final film.
