Sylvester Stallone Says He’s Out Of The Rambo Business

stalloneIn an extended interview with The Hollywood Reporter, actor/writer/director Sylvester Stallone claims he is done making movies as Vietnam vet John Rambo.

As pointed out by Slashfilm, Stallone said, “The heart’s willing, but the body says, ‘Stay home!'” Though he’s flirted with a fifth Rambo film over the years — at one point the plot saw Rambo fight “feral beasts” — he stepped back from the idea, saying “It’s like fighters that go back for one last round and get clobbered. Leave it to someone else.”

That someone else could be the son of Rambo in the proposed Rambo: New Blood TV series, but Stallone will not be involved in that project. “It’s delicate to try to replace a character with his son,” he said. “I’ve seen the son of Flicka, the son of Tarzan, the son of King Kong. It’s a very difficult premise.”

Of course, it is always possible Stallone could be tempted back one more time.
