Splendid Films has acquired the rights to Rambo V, and Stallone describes it as "his version of No Country for Old Men."
Ready for more carnage from Sylvester Stallone's John Rambo character? Last seen in 2008 in the film series' fourth entry, Rambo, apparently German outfit Splendid Film has bought the rights to Rambo V. The press release mentions, "Mit 'Rambo V' kehrt Sylvester Stallone in seine Paraderolle zurück. Dieses Mal legt er sich mit dem mexikanischen Kartell an. Stallone, der auch für das Drehbuch verantwortlich ist, beschreibt den neuen Rambo als seine Version von 'No Country for Old Men.' Produzent ist, wie schon beim letzten 'John Rambo,' Avi Lerner ('The Expendables 1-3')."
If you're like me and don't know a lick of German, here's the translated text courtesy of ComingSoon:
With "Rambo V" Sylvester Stallone returns in his iconic role. This time he goes up against a Mexican cartel. Stallone, who has also written the screenplay, describes the new Rambo as his version of "No Country for Old Men." Like the last film, "Rambo V" is produced by Avi Lerner ("The Expendables 1-3")
Sylvester Stallone wrote and directed the 2008 Rambo film that totaled over $113 million in box office receipts from a $50 million budget to turn a profit. Do you want to see John Rambo take on the Mexican Cartel? Come to think of it, do you want more Rambo films at all?
