Stallone: "Rambo is done"


26th April 2010

Sylvester Stallone has revealed that Rambo is finally in retirement: he's officially too old for that shit.

Remember Stallone's so-awful-it-might-be-kinda-awesome pitch for a fifth Rambo movie? First it was about human trafficking in Mexico. Then he stepped it up and wrote a draft about a rage monster. Now, on the press trail for The Expendables, Stallone has killed the project stone dead. No more Rambo. He can retire in peace. In, er, Burma.

Speaking to Empire, Stallone revealed that JR had been put out to pasture.

"I think Rambo's pretty well done. I don't think there'll be any more. I'm about 99 per cent sure."
Honestly, who can blame him? Look at the video below. The guy is 63 years old and his arms are so grotesque and veiny they look like Tommy Lee's dicks.

Rambo and Rocky were always Stallone's fallback characters, and now, with The Expendables looking like it'll find an audience, Sly doesn't need that safety net. That's not to say his sequel days aren't over...

"We are very serious... we're already working on an [Expendables] sequel."
Somewhere, Steven Seagal's ears just pricked up.
