Yes, we get to watch Sylvester Stallone, who is almost the oldest man on earth, play the baddest man on earth in yet another Rocky movie.
The Rambo star tweeted Dec. 28 that the title of the forthcoming fifth film in the franchise will be Rambo: Last Blood. The title refers to 1982’s First Blood, which launched the character.
“Doing Scarpa based on Gangster Greg Scarpa after LAST BLOOD RAMBO…” Stallone wrote about his upcoming projects.
Stallone, who wrote the script for the new Rambo film and is set to direct, will first film a role in director Ryan Coogler’s upcoming Rocky spinoff Creed, which stars Michael B. Jordan (That Awkward Moment) as Apollo Creed’s grandson Adonis.
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Sylvester Stallone says that despite his “Rambo” image and new shoot-em-up film “Bullet to the Head,” he’s in favor of new national gun control legislation.
Stallone supported the 1994 “Brady bill” that included a now-expired ban on assault weapons, and hopes that ban can be reinstated.
“I know people get (upset) and go, `They’re going to take away the assault weapon.’ Who … needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault. … You can’t hunt with it. … Who’s going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?”
The 66-year-old actor, writer and director said he also hopes for an additional focus on mental health to prevent future mass shootings.
“It’s unbelievably horrible, what’s happened. I think the biggest problem, seriously, is not so much guns. It’s that every one of these people that have done these things in the past 30 years are friggin’ crazy. Really crazy! And that’s where we’ve dropped the ball: mental health,” he said. “That to me is our biggest problem in the future, is insanity coupled with isolation.”
