Is a 5th Rambo on the Horizon?

RamboBack before Rambo hit the big screen there was news over a title change. You see, it was originally slated to be called John Rambo. It was changed because Sly Stallone did not want it to be too closely associated with Rocky Balboa, meaning that he did not want people to believe it would be the last one as the Rocky film was the last go around for the boxing champ. However, when Rambo opened, word spread that this would indeed by the final battle for the Vietnam vet. If that did turn out to be the case, it did end on a high note. There is new word circulating, reported by, that there may be another Rambo on the horizon.

Sylvestor Stallone said in an interview with Metro Magazine: “I would like to take Rambo to another genre, experiment a little with the character. It would definitely not be another warmovie, cuz I can’t go any further with that than what I’ve already done. What it’s going to be like I’m not going to reveal at this point. But I’m already halfway though writing the manuscript”

Could this be the long rumored “Rambo in the city” story? Perhaps. More likely, Sly is going to make a more personal story that shows another facet of the character and bring the journey to a classy close, much like was done with Rocky Balboa. Still, anything we say at this point is pure speculation. It will definitely be interesting to see if this project pans out.
