So you thought that Rambo was created for the sole purpose of putting another one of Stallone’s characters to rest? Think again. As we see all too often, an opening weekend box office success story has lead to immediate speculation about another sequel in the making. In this case, however, I was a bit surprised to read that Harvey Weinstein is already calling for a fifth Rambo film.
I was under the impression that Stallone was doing these new Rocky and Rambo movies to give the characters one last hurrah, not to continue running them into the ground. Apparently Weinstein has other plans, however. He claims that there is a Rambo sequel being planned, with the intention of “bringing the character back to the United States”. I suppose as long as there is money to be made, there’s a good chance it will happen. I was kind of looking forward to seeing Stallone try his hand at something completely different, like his Edgar Allen Poe biopic. Is a fifth Rambo really necessary? If they did make it, would you see it?
