For years, fans are eagerly waiting to watch yet another Rambo film. Earlier, it was reported that the actor will not only play John Rambo, but also direct the film. The 2008 Rambo film (IV) was scripted and directed by the actor himself, but Rambo V will be directed by Adrian Grunberg, who had directed the Mel Gibson starrer Get the Gringo.
What began with director Ted Kotcheff’s 1982 film First Blood (based on David Morrell’s 1972 novel of the same name), the character of John Rambo – a troubled Vietnam veteran has been successfully followed in three sequels released in 1985, 1988, and 2008.
Rambo V has been in development for long but now with the beginning of the filming, it is expected to be released sometime in fall 2019.
Well, Stallone will also continue acting for his roles in Expendables film which will be coming after the Rambo film and also in Creed II – a sequel to Creed starring Michael B. Jordan. He will comeback as Rocky Balboa as a trainer to Jordan’s character Adonis Johnson. Creed II is coming to theatres on November 21, 2018.
