Stallone To Make New Rambo Movie

I know the man's almost 60 but as he's going to do a final Rocky movie as well he may as well return to the Army boots and bandana of John J. Rambo in "Rambo IV".

The plot (as if that matters for a Rambo movie) is a bit vague at the moment: John J. Rambo retired into a quiet life until he comes out of seclusion to track and recover a missing girl".

The movie will be shot between Mexico and the United States. Filming is scheduled to start in the spring.

That's about all I have. More when I get more.

I propose that we lobby Hollywood to write in the Colonel as John Rambo's old war buddie / side kick any takers?

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

You may be onto somthing there. As you may or may not know. Richard Crenna, the actor who played Colonel Samuel Trautman in the three previous Rambo movies died two years ago of cancer (that's a reoccouring theme around here lately), so technically there's a buddy/mentor role to fill...

That's a brilliant idea Sir. You could play a Colonel who Rambo wants to kill because you left him behind!!!!

Thats an interesting idea ... and a final duel between a knife-wielding Rambo and a Whizzinator armed Colonel ...
... those who didn't see that one coming may be wasting their time here :-)

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Actually since I posted this, it appears Tommy Lee Jones is in talks to play Colonel Trautman!!! Which is rediculous, as Mr.Jones is almost the same age as Stallone- certainly not old enough to play Rambo's father-figure. I think the character of Trautman should be dead with the late Richard Crenna.

That still leaves space for a screw-up little brother figure in John Rambo's life, picture it surrounded by hundreds of VC, Rambo pulls out the knife, glances sideways at his kid brother, the Colonel Creedon, who is brandishing the whizzinator, the look of disapproval that flickers over Rambo's face...

... the look of disapproval turning to one of disgust as he sees what the Colonel does what that whizzinator to incapacitated charlie...
