Slyvester Stallone, now 65, told reporters that he is ready to once more don his jungle gear as he is set to star in Rambo 5.
The actor told reporters he is working on a script in which the former Vietnam veteran fights his final battle against the Mexican drug cartels.
During an interview with MTV, Stallone hinted the showdown would be in Mexico and also claimed that Rambo’s destiny was “to go out in a blaze of glory”.
Stallone told reporters, “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.” In Stallone’s opinion, Rambo needs a hero’s ending. He also stated that Rambo’s destiny is “ 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 ... That’s who he is.”
This is Rambo’s fifth adventure since the filming of the original in 1982; the latest installment was released in 2008.
In 2010 Stallone was asked whether he would he want to do another Rambo. Stallone replied: “God, no. There’s nothing left to kill!”. That is, except the Mexican drug lords!
