Last we heard from Sylvester Stallone on the Rambo front was that he was pretty much done with the franchise, telling Empire over a year ago that he was "about 99% sure there won't be any more," adding he's "very happy with the last Burmese episode, and another film might be misinterpreted as an unnecessary and mercenary gesture." But that doesn't mean they can't commission a script for one last sequel and see how it turns out, right?
Apparently that's exactly what's happened, as Conan the Barbarian writer Sean Hood has officially submitted his screenplay, titled Rambo: Last Stand, to Millennium. Now this wasn't a case of the studio going around Stallone to potentially make their own Rambo movie without him. Hood tells Empire that the original Rambo was very much involved in the concept and story, meeting with Hood twice last year and giving him "a book, an older screenplay, and about twenty pages he'd written himself to use as inspiration for the last chapter in the Rambo saga."
Still, though, Hood says it may not happen. Stallone is busy working on two upcoming projects, The Expendables 2 and Bullet to the Head, and so it could be awhile before he'd return to film Rambo: Last Stand. While the writer wouldn't give up a whole ton of details regarding the final Rambo chapter, he did say that it's "more in line with the small-town thriller of First Blood," adding that he hoped Stallone will be "inspired to do one more Rambo film, with the tone of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven."
What do you think? Should Stallone put the exclamation mark on the Rambo franchise by starring in one last sequel?
