    Default Sylvester Stallone Says 'Rambo V' Won't Happen

    01 May 2010Stallone Says Rambo V Won't Happen
    Excl: Director says he's '99% sure'

    For a while now, there have been all sorts of rumours about Rambo V. Itís a sci-fi. No, itís a straight-up Rambo flick, where Sylvester Stalloneís one-man army takes on all-comers and shoots them into the middle of next week. No, itís this. No, itís that.
    So, when we spoke to Stallone exclusively for our cover feature on The Expendables, we took the time to ask him for the definitive take on the fifth big-screen adventure of the taciturn warrior, and discovered that itís none of the above.
    In fact, itís not going to happen at all.
    ďI think Ramboís pretty well done. I donít think thereíll be any more. Iím about 99% sure,Ē said Stallone, which comes as something of a surprise. After all, Rambo V was considered to be something of an inevitability after the last movie, the ultra-violent Rambo, made $113 million worldwide in 2008. But The Expendables has made Sly think long and hard about his future; and Rambo doesnít feature in it.
    ďI was going to do it,Ē he said. ďI said Iíd never talk about this, but with I feel that with Rocky Balboa, that character came complete circle. He went home. But for Rambo to go on another adventure might be, I think, misinterpreted as a mercenary gesture and not necessary. I donít want that to happen.
    ďIím very happy with the last Burmese episode, because I didnít pull any punches on it,Ē he continued. ďI wanted it to be what civil war really is Ė rough. You canít candy coat it, and where do you go from there? So thatís [Rambo V] going to go.Ē
    Stalloneís not done with Rambo completely, though. He told Empire that heís at work on a directorís cut of Rambo which will restore twelve minutes to the movie, including a surprising outburst of loquaciousness for the mumbling man of action at the movieís beginning.
    ďHe does a speech at the beginning of the movie to Julie Benz where he lays out why his life has been a complete disappointment and why war is natural and peace is an accident,Ē added Stallone. ďAnd how he just feels that his life has been a waste. Itís very important to hear that and I didnít think so at the time. Iím going to go back and put in some stuff.Ē

    That's a little good news.

    Seeing Sly mumble his way through a speech would be the only reason to see the director's cut of Rambo.
