Rambo not hunting a weird beast. Instead he is saving the ladies

Posted by LiveFor on November 13, 2009

ramboA while back Sylvester Stallone revealed some story details for his upcoming action sequel. It was going to be Rambo vs some kind of genetic beastie (more here), but now it seems the story has changed a bit. Sylvester Stallone spoke to AICN and he gave some updates on the story of Rambo V: A Savage Hunt.

I’m letting you know that Rambo has changed course and the story about hunting the man/beast will be done using another character in the lead. RAMBO himself will be heading over the border to a violent city where many young women have vanished

There will be blood.

The upcoming project’s storyline revolves around Rambo fighting his way through human traffickers and drug lords to rescue a young girl abducted near the U.S.-Mexico border. Production will start in the spring.

Stallone had indicated in interviews that a fifth Rambo was in the works. He teamed with Nu Image/Millennium on the 2008 project, which grossed $42 million domestically and $113 million overseas.

Nu Image/Millennium is in post-production on “Expendables,” starring Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li and Mickey Rourke. The actioner’s set for release on April 23 through Lionsgate.

Rambo first appeared in the 1982 pic “First Blood,” followed in 1985 by “First Blood II” and in 1988 by “Rambo III.”

Are you ready for more Rambo?

Sequel News on a load of movies

Posted by LiveFor on August 7, 2008

Lots of news on various sequels. Thanks to Andy D for putting them altogether. They are culled from MSN so blame the dreadful puns on them!

Ghostbusters 3

Who you gonna call? Well, probably not Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis. Unfortunately, those classic comedians are a bit old to be busting ghosts with electricity. But rumour has it that the original ghostbusters will be teaming up with a new crop of comedians: Judd Apatow’s crew (Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, etc.) to film a second Ghostbusters sequel.

The Evil Dead 4

Director Sam Raimi was asked about this possibly project while promoting his latest movie, Drag Me To Hell. Raimi’s response? “That’s in the wheelhouse. I’d like to work on it.” Well, we’re not sure if we’d like to see it, but whatever kills your zombies.

Beverly Hills Cop 4

Word on the streets of Hollywood is that this next instalment is all but camera-ready. Brett Ratner is set to direct, screenwriters Michael Brandt and Derek Hass of Wanted and 3:10 To Yuma have been hired, and Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as Axel Foley. Let’s face it, Murphy doesn’t have much else going on (see Meet Dave…oh, wait, no one did), and to be honest we’d love to see him get back to his comedy roots. Bring on the cuss words!

RoboCop 4

Director Darren Aronofsky has been linked to this film, although it’s unclear yet if the movie will be a prequel or a sequel. Aronofsky’s other works have included the fantastical The Fountain and the depressing Requiem For A Dream. We’re interested to see where he’d take a ‘part man. Part machine. All cop.’

Dirty Dancing 3

We were shocked to hear about this after the dismally bad Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights bombed at the box office. Granted, that was a prequel, and it didn’t have the power of Swayze! This could also be a result of the mega-hit stage musical. Supposedly, despite his recent battle with pancreatic cancer, Patrick Swayze will put on his dancing shoes for this sequel. Nobody puts Patrick in a corner!

The Untouchables: Capone Rising

Rumour has it that a prequel to classic crime caper The Untouchables is in the works, and that director Brian De Palma is spearheading the project. We have to admit this could be good – of course we hope De Niro’s not slated for Capone again. He’s twenty years older, this picture will show Capone twenty years younger… it’s simple maths.

Alien v Predator 3

These movies, much like both the alien and the predator, will seemingly never die. After numerous Alien films and several Predator movies throughout the 80s, the Alien v Predator franchise was born to the delight of geeks over the globe. The most recent one made a stack of cash, so it seems studios are looking to profit again – no matter how many innocent people have to perish!

Rambo 5

The most recent Rambo film was released in January 2008 with the tagline “heroes never die.” And we believe it. As long as Sly Stallone is alive and kicking, Rambo films will be made. He’s 62 this year, and Rambo 5 is slated for late 2009 or early 2010.

The Boogeyman 3

It’s hard to call this The Boogeyman 3 for certain, as since The Boogeyman 2 came out in 1982 the franchise has been peppered with straight-to-video releases (1994’s Return Of The Boogeyman) and remakes. But, perhaps this installment will bring back some of the horror of the original. Or… it will just be horrible.

The Lost Boys 3

Sequel to the original The Lost Boys, The Lost Boys: The Tribe, was a straight-to-DVD title released in 2008. Producers supposedly think its lack of popularity was due to its lack of Corey Haim. Haim appeared in the film, but not half as much as his drug-free friend Corey Feldman. The Tribe’s ending was a set-up for a follow-up; hopefully Haim will be more camera-ready this time.

Discuss in the forum.
