Sylvester Stallone is taking the fight to Mexico with a brand-new Rambo movie on the way that will see the veteran one man army going up against the drug cartels.
According to a report from Deadline, work is already underway on the fifth instalment of the hit action movie franchise, with filming potentially set to start in September 2018.
The plot looks set to borrow heavily from Liam Neeson’s Taken franchise, with Rambo heading to Mexico after the daughter of a friend is kidnapped.
Forced to cross the border to deliver his unique brand of bloody justice, John Rambo will be
Going up against “the full might of one of Mexico’s most violent cartels.”
There had been some doubts as to whether the film would go ahead a few months ago, but the release of this new synopsis and a poster suggests otherwise.
Stallone is showing no signs of slowing down. He’s currently busy filming Creed II and is in arguably the best physical shape of his life.
Rambo V is likely to be a bloody affair, if the last instalment is anything to go by.
Released back in 2008, Rambo was a veritable blood bath, with Stallone’s John Rambo dispatching a glut of faceless soldier types with merciless glee.
Heads explode, bodies are torn apart by machine gun fire and a fair few knives end up getting stabbed in a series of skulls. It’s crazy stuff.
