Sylvester Stallone lifts the lid on gruelling Rambo 5 workout regime
Sylvester Stallone has taken fans behind the scenes of his intense preparations for Rambo 5.
The 72-year-old actor is reprising the role of John Rambo for a fifth instalment due to arrive in cinemas in late 2019.
Filming on the project began this month with Adrian Grunberg reportedly directing.
According to Geeks World Wide, the Get the Gringo director has taken charge of the shoot, with filming set to take place in London, Bulgaria and the Canary Islands.
In the meantime, Stallone has been busy in the gym and on Instagram proving age is most definitely a number.
Plot details for Rambo 5 remain scarce at this point.
Screen Daily published a synopsis outlining the film’s possible storyline.
It reads as follows: “[Rambo] finds him[self] living in a ranch in Arizona, deeply troubled and wrestling with PTSD as he picks up casual work wherever he can.
“When long-time family friend and estate manager Maria informs Rambo that her granddaughter has gone missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, he sets off with her to find the youngster.”
“What ensues is a violent descent into hell as Rambo uncovers a sex-trafficking ring.
“He teams up with a journalist whose half-sister has also been kidnapped and must deploy all his skills to save the girls and bring down a vicious crime lord.”
Rumoured to be Rambo’s final outing – or Stallone’s at least, the film has been written by Matthew Cirulnick, whose previous credits include Paid In Full and the TV series Absentia.
Loaded staff writer Jack Beresford has produced content for Lad Bible, Axonn Media and a variety of online sports and news media outlets.
