Rambo III airs tonight on CStar, the opportunity to take stock of Stallone’s projects, which will soon return to the big screen.
Rambo, an iconic character played by Sylvester Stallone, has crossed the ages since his first appearance in 1982’s First Blood.
The comedian has played this green beret Vietnam veteran 5 times. The latest, Last Blood, landed in September 2019.
Did Rambo really retire in this movie or will we see him again? On the occasion of the broadcast on CStar of the 3rd part, released in 1988, we ask ourselves the question again.
RAMBO BACK TO THE CINEMA?
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely we’ll ever see the super soldier on screen again. Last Blood, Rambo’s latest subtitle, is self-explanatory.
However, in September 2019, Stallone stated that the character could eventually return to the small screen, in a series that would tell the original story of the Green Beret.
“I always thought of Rambo when I was 16 or 17. He was amazing. I hope they do a prequel. He was the captain of his football team.
He was the most popular student in his school, a super athlete. He was like Jim Thorpe [célèbre joueur de football américain] and the war changed it. If you had seen him, he was the perfect guy.”Stallone confided into the microphone of Screenrant.
Trained by Colonel Trautman, John Rambo is a ruthless war machine deployed by the US Army in the Vietnamese jungle. This origin story would aim to tell how the young soldier became a ruthless warrior.
At the moment, no such project has pointed the tip of its nose. However, it is not ruled out that it will be done one day given the popularity of the character.
RAMBO AMONG THE INDIANS?
As for Rambo’s return to the movies, Stallone isn’t really contemplating it. However, he left a bit of confidence if one sixth saw the light of day. For the actor, a new story would only be possible if the soldier was found on an Indian reservation.
“It’s the only place I could go and survive because the police can’t go there (the reservations are under federal jurisdiction). It’s the only place he could hide and heal. Otherwise, you’re screwed.”Indian.
STALLONE’S NEW PROJECTS
Sylvester Stallone, 75, may be done with Rambo, but he’s not done with movies. We will find it on August 31, 2022 in Samaritan.
Sly camps a legendary superhero there. The latter disappeared twenty years ago after a battle that ended in a terrible tragedy. But a boy will start looking for the hero, who believes that he is still alive.
Judging by Stallone’s teasing on social media, the film seems to fit the post-apocalyptic genre. Like Rocky in Creed, Sly will once again take a young man under his wing, further adopting his role as mentor to the next generation.
Some time ago, the artist published an image of the shoot showing him from behind, armed with a mace. The actor told us that his aging superhero character won’t be around to do extras, but he will take part in the fight, despite his 75 years.
The actor has also completed filming Expendables 4. The actor confirmed a few months ago that he was retiring, leaving the saga in the expert hands of Jason Statham. The release date has not yet been revealed.
On the other hand, we know when Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will land, in which Sly will reprise his role as Stakar Ogord alongside Chris Pratt. It will be for May 3, 2023.
The artist also has another film project on fire: Little America, currently in pre-production. The story will take us to the future, where a president similar to Donald Trump leads the United States to bankruptcy.
China pays off the country’s debt and many Americans go to Asia to find work. In this new world, a former military man is hired by a Chinese billionaire to infiltrate an American ghetto and save his daughter.
Also, in May 2020, Stallone mentioned in a instagram live a sequel to the classic Demolition Man. “I think Demolition Man 2 is coming, we’re working on it with Warner Bros. and it looks great. We should know soon, it’s coming.”, he asserted. Two years later, there is still no news of this project.
STALLONE ON THE SMALL SCREEN?
Last December we learned that the action movie legend was in negotiations to produce and star in Kansas City, a drama series by Taylor Sheridan and Terence Winter for Paramount+.
This is Stallone’s first major role in a television series, the actor only appeared as a guest in several classic series such as Police Story and Kojak in the 70’s and most recently in season 2 of This Is Us.
Kansas City follows the journey of Sal, an Italian gangster from New York forced to move to the most unlikely place: Kansas City, Missouri.
The action takes place in the present day and the character is on a mission to revive his mafia family in this modern and brutal city. There, Sal meets surprising and naive characters who follow him on his path to power.
