Sylvester Stallone May Be Planning 'Rambo 5'

Like most movie franchises these days, the Rambo series is regularly brought up with regards to the chance of another installment. In the six years since the release of part four, simply titled Rambo, we've been teased about a fifth a number of times, with alternating reports that it'll never happen. The latest news is on the positive side.

According to the German site Splended Film (via, which provided the translation), Sylvester Stallone has a script for Rambo V, which involves the title character going up against a Mexican drug cartel, and he's said to think of it as his version of No Country for Old Men. Avi Lerner, who produced the last movie and is developing an unrelated Rambo TV series, is also on board.

This isn't the first time we've heard about the cartel idea for a Rambo movie. Back in 2012, Stallone said it'd be set in an Arizona border town, that he doesn't think John Rambo likes Mexicans and hinted that this would be the last, with the character dying at the end just as he was supposed to in the first movie -- if it were to be faithfully adapted from the novel, that is.

With The Expendables 3 coming out in August, and with it plenty of press involving Stallone, we'll likely be hearing more comment on Rambo V very soon.

How pumped are you for another Rambo sequel?
