After resurrecting Barney Ross for The Expendables 3 and with plans to do the same for Rocky Balboa in the upcoming spinoff, Creed, the action movie mainstay is ready for another Rambo entry. And it looks like he just officially revealed the title, and that likely means a bigger announcement is on the horizon.
We haven’t heard much on the next Rambo, as details and a production schedule are being finalized. Though, there was a rumor floating around that it will be officially titled Rambo: Last Blood, a name which originated from a ComingSoon reader. Not the most reliable of sources, we know, but Stallone took to Twitter and seemingly confirmed this piece of intel.
As John Rambo himself is perfectly content in naming names, it stands to reason that an official announcement will likely drop soon with a release date for Rambo: Last Blood. According to reports, Stallone not only plans on starring in the film, but directing it as well. He directed himself in a number of the Rocky movies and in The Expendables, so we have some faith he can pull this one off.
Few plot details are known of Last Blood: Rambo, but Ain’t It Cool News released a supposed plot description way back in 2009, which sounds eerily similar to James Byron Huggins’ novel Hunter. (Note that Stallone maintains the movie rights to this title.) However, that was then, when the title was rumored to be The Savage Land, so take that for whatever grain of salt it’s worth. However, Stallone described his character’s return a few months ago as such:
I’m getting ready for that. I’m starting to work out. I’m going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual. A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We’re going to try to cover all the boundaries.
