Sylvester Stallone teases the start of Rambo V production with a new social media post.
72 year-old Sylvester Stallone to film fifth Rambo movie
STEPANAKERT, SEPTEMBER 11, ARTSAKHPRESS: The role of John Rambo is one of Stallone's most popular, second only to Rocky Balboa. He has played the Vietnam veteran four times over the years, most recently in 2008's Rambo.
Sylvester Stallone is poised to reprise one of his most iconic roles in an Instagram post teasing the return of 80s action hero John Rambo.
The post, a picture from Rambo’s last appearance in 2008’s Rambo, teases the start of principal photography on the eagerly anticipated Rambo V which was officially announced this past May for a 2019 release date.
Rambo 5 will take place after the events of the last film and will see the character residing in Arizona. Rambo lives and works on a ranch, trying to live a private and quiet life. However, that all changes when a human trafficking gang starts abducting local women and bringing them into Mexico. John Rambo teams with a journalist to rescue the women, and it appears that there will be quite a bit of interrogation scenes as evidenced by casting videos. It all seems like a pretty solid plot that will bring Sylvester Stallone back into some pretty crazy action.
