PEOPLE magazine has released the following new super awesome picture from The Expendables!! Soak in the awesomeness!!
A couple items popped up today at Ain't It Cool News regarding a possible Rambo V. The reporter Merrick stated that EXPENDABLES Executive Producer Boaz Davidson released the following statement to a German magazine named DEADLINE:
"John Rambo returns home, finds out his father died. Only a mexican family that worked for his father lives in the Rambo house, which is next to the mexican border. The daughter of the mexican family decides to celebrate her birthday in Mexico, where she disappears. John Rambo starts looking for her, and finds out a connection to a slave traders(?) ring. It will be pretty realistic and bloody again."
Merrick then noted that Nu Image was showing off Rambo V artwork on their site and that a Rambo V poster was making the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival. So this all begged the question...is Rambo a go or not?
We got our answer later today straight from Sly himself when he phoned Harry Knowles at Ain't It Cool News...here's what Harry had to say:
"Hey folks, Harry here. SO I just answered the phone, it was Sylvester Stallone calling... The conversation began with him loving on my ROBIN HOOD review. HEAD INFLATING. And then he said he wondered if you guys would be up for another go around of questions & answers with Sly. I said, "Of course my readers would love that." So look for that at some point this summer. Next I had to ask, "Sly, what's up with all this RAMBO V posters at Cannes?" Folks... As this was an unscheduled conversation - I won't be quoting Sly directly - but essentially...NO FUCKING WAY. Stallone told me in no uncertain terms - At the end of JOHN RAMBO - when he sees his home, those horses and he looks back at that road... for Sly, that was a road he is never walking down again. In August, he's doing an expanded edition of JOHN RAMBO that seems to be coming to Blu Ray and DVD - where he is putting back into the films - a few moments here and there that help with the finality of that film. Including a monologue, somewhere around the head of the film which will basically give everything John Rambo has left to say, that is, as of yet, unsaid. So what is going on with the RAMBO V posters at Cannes? Sly has no clue. When I floated the concept that it could be the rights holders trying to raise ludicrous funds to get Sly back in front of the camera. Sly said, "Maybe, but it ain't happening." He then told me that the folks behind those posters essentially said that if Sly didn't do it - someone else would. And Sly seems fine with that. So... it is possible that we'll see RAMBO again on screen... it just won't be with Sly. He's let go of the character, in terms of being on screen. That said, he's very happy with THE EXPENDABLES - and is finishing the film TODAY. He's head over heels for Brian Tyler's score, which we discussed briefly. Oh - and Austin - we could be having one helluva fun EXPENDABLES event. Just saying."
So there you have it...no Rambo V...at least not with Sly...god help the man who even dared to try and takeover that role...there is only one Rambo and his fighting days are done.
Pretty sweet news about The Expendables in there too. The question sessions with Sly are always a great read and man I kinda wish I was going to be in Austin now too....oh well....
Everyone was expecting Rambo V to be Sly's next film following The Expendables with its already released plot and development. But according to Empire magazine, Sly released the following quotes that appear to announce Rambo as finished and Expendables 2 as a strong possibility to be Sly's next film!!
"I think Rambo's pretty well done. I don't think there'll be any more. I'm about 99 per cent sure,"
"We are very serious... we're already working on an [Expendables] sequel,"
No more Rambo does suck but Expendables 2 coming our way sooner rather then later totally fucking rocks!! I just may have to launch a new section here at the site to monitor its development!! Stay tuned for more!!
