'Rambo V': Sylvester Stallone goes full cowboy teasing fans about upcoming movie
The filming for the movie is finally beginning and while fans have to wait till next year's autumn to finally witness 'Rambo V', this surely makes up for the lack of a movie.
Sylvester Stallone has taken it upon himself to surprise and confuse fans of the epic-action franchise, Rambo, with his new look alone. The fifth film in the franchise is soon to arrive, and ahead of its release, the 72-year-old decided to share a photo of his look as the iconic character. The filming for the movie is finally beginning and while fans have to wait till next autumn to finally watch 'Rambo V', this surely makes up for the lack of a John Rambo movie over the past few years. The bonus? Rambo's little makeover.
Embracing the cowboy side to his personality, Stallone was in full form as he once again stepped into the role. Or that's what the Instagram snap showed. A second upload following it showed Stallone all gallant and mighty, riding a horse through a wooded area, in the middle of the night. "Comes a Horseman Wild and Free," reads the caption of the post that he put up for his 7.5 million Instagram followers.
As Mail Online reported, the quote is from the 1978 film 'Comes A Horseman Wild And Free' and could speculatively mean that the soldier's latest and upcoming adventure could have something in common with the Western. For those unaware, this can be further explained by the end of the last movie in the franchise, which was back in 2008. The last we saw of Rambo was of him being content on a horse farm. As per previous reports, he was to cross paths with a drug cartel in the coming installment.
The Rambo franchise began with First Blood, back in 1982. The sequels that followed were Rambo: First Blood Part II, in 1985; and Rambo III, that came three years later. The last time we saw Stallone as Rambo on screen was in the 2008 release.
Apart from that, Stallone is also returning in Creed II, where he will reprise his role his iconic role of Rocky Balboa, opposite Michael B Jordan. There's also The Expendables 4, where Stallone will be joining Jason Statham, as his character Barney Ross, comes back with several other new members on the team.
