A couple of months ago we reported that the plot for the upcoming Rambo sequel  had taken on a sci-fi angle involving John Rambo hunting space aliens in the Pacific Northwest. The reaction here at FSR was decidedly mixed with some of us thinking the idea was beyond ridiculous and others popping immediate chemically-enhanced boners. (Hi Fure!)

Well you can forget we ever mentioned it in the first place.

Sylvester Stallone has apparently dropped a line to Craig Zablo over at the Stallone Zone and he updated the direction Rambo V will be taking. He isn’t abandoning the plot-line all together, but he’s apparently moving it away from the Rambo franchise and into a separate stand-alone film.

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.”

Stallone doesn’t provide any further details, but it’s clear the “border” in question is the US/Canadian one. There aren’t any obviously violent cities across the US/Mexican one, but up north there’s no shortage of dangerous urban areas. Toronto, Vancouver, Windsor… all death traps.

So are you happy Stallone has dropped the sci-fi angle? Or do prefer it over the generic one it’s been replaced with?
