Earlier this week, as Harvey Weinstein was basking in the box office success of Rambo, he started spouting off about the possibilities of a fifth Rambo film. It seemed a bit odd to me since Stallone had always said he just wanted to bring a respectable conclusion to these franchises of his, and if you’ve seen Rambo, you know that the end kind of brings the story full circle.
Well now Stallone has finally made a statement to clear these rumours up, and Weinstein may not like the answer:
“This is the last Rambo just as Rocky Balboa is the last Rocky… I can’t go any further. It was a miracle that it even got done.”
So there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth. I’m glad he is sticking to his guns on this one, although it kind of makes you wonder if they could carry on the franchise without him. “Rambo Jr.” perhaps? Hey, don’t laugh, stranger things have happened.
