MovieHole recently posted that Nu-Image/Millennium had Rambo V posters on display at the Berlin Film Festival. The poster is a slightly modified take on a previous poster used to promote the idea of a new Rambo film. According to the piece…
…the new “Rambo” won’t happen before Sly gets back with his ‘Expendables’ buddies though; Millennium announced in Berlin that “The Expendables 3″ – which will assumingly reunite Stallone with co-stars Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis etc – is gearing up to shoot this Summer. Guessing Sly’s already got his draft in. With “The Expendables 2″ making over $300 million worldwide, this is a no-brainer.

SZoner, Gerardo Moreno is back with his version of how a new Rambo movie poster could look. I’ve always enjoyed Gerardo’s Stallone art, but this may be his best piece ever. To see more of his art, click here.

Josh Horowitz of MTV recently got to sit down with Sly and talk about Expendables 2, a new Rambo and more. You can read about it or see the video at MTV’s post, Sylvester Stallone Ups the Ante.

Sly’s recent discussion about his thoughts for a new Rambo adventure have popped up all over…
And many other sites…

On May 2, 2012, Lindsay Johns, in the Daily Mail posted a compelling and heartfelt article: Why Sylvester Stallone Should Not Make Rambo 5.
I get where Lindsay Johns is coming from. Rambo was a perfect bookend to the series… or was it. Perhaps there is another story yet to tell. Rambo is the reluctant warrior. I trust Sly’s instincts… especially when he is at the helm. Few had faith in a final Rocky or Rambo and we all know how they turned out. - Craig

With the Sly’s recent discussion about a new Rambo story brewing, there’s been a lot of speculation that Sly might kill off everyone’s favorite warrior. I received word from Sly who writes….
- “When I said he goes out in a blaze of glory I didn’t mean his physical demise at all. Rambo will fade into perpetuity. Thank you.”
So no need to worry, Rambo’s not gong to see the Grim Reaper anytime soon! - Craig

On April 27, 2012, MTV posted a video interview with Sly where he discussed the potential return of Rambo. Here’s a bit of what Sly had to say…
- “There’s a volcanic eruption [brewing]. The magma of Rambo is coming to the surface,”
- “It’s one thing where you lay down the final culmination of your life where you can articulate it, but also act on it where he realizes what his destiny really is… It’s not to be a farmer, it’s not to be obscure; it’s to go out in a blaze of glory in a heroic fashion. But is he really doing it for himself or is he doing it because that’s just his id? That’s who he is.
- “I like the whole Mexican situation, what’s going on down there… So I’m working on a formula for it right now.”

Several sites picked up on the news that Sly had discussed the possibility of a fifth Rambo movie…

The image above is of a poster that is showing up around the Cannes Film Festival. The back of the poster has the words Coming 2011. So it would seem that earlier reports that Sly had decided not to return for another Rambo were wrong. But were they? Not according to this report from Harry at Ain’t It Cool News. Harry says…
… Stallone told me in no uncertain terms – At the end of JOHN RAMBO – when he sees his home, those horses and he looks back at that road… for Sly, that was a road he is never walking down again.
Truthfully, I liked the idea of Rambo going into Mexico to rescue some kidnapped girls. Of course I also thought that the ending to Rambo was a perfect capper to the series. If Sly asked for my advice, I’d say, you can’t top perfection. Rambo has come full circle. Let’s end the series and do Hunter and another Expendables. After that, let’s see what else is out there. Perhaps Poe?
Before we leave the topic of another Rambo. There could be another Rambo with another Rambo. “Huh,” you say? It has been floated that perhaps the series will return with someone else playing the character. I do think that Rambo would be viable as an on-going series and different actors could step into the role… if enough time passes between Sly stepping down and the new person stepping up. RIght now, I think it would be too soon.
