Although in the past Sylvester Stallone has indicated he would like to see another Rambo movie, Stallone now tells Empire that he’s “99% sure” there won’t be another movie in the franchise:
“I think Rambo’s pretty well done. I don’t think there’ll be any more. I’m about 99% sure.”
Stallone took the character out for a spin two years ago with Rambo, which went on to gross a solid $113.2M worldwide so it’s clear there’s still an appetite in the public for the character. But alas, Stallone says he’s happy where the franchise ended:
“I was going to do it,” he said. “I said I’d never talk about this, but with I feel that with Rocky Balboa, that character came complete circle. He went home. But for Rambo to go on another adventure might be, I think, misinterpreted as a mercenary gesture and not necessary. I don’t want that to happen.
“I’m very happy with the last Burmese episode, because I didn’t pull any punches on it,” he continued. “I wanted it to be what civil war really is – rough. You can’t candy coat it, and where do you go from there? So that’s [Rambo V] going to go.”
