Sylvester Stallone addressed the possibility of starring in another Rambo movie, and it doesn't seem likely.
The Hollywood hardman recently hit the Toronto International Film Festival to discuss his upcoming documentary movie, Sly, and of course the subject of some of his many movie roles came up in the process. While Stallone seemingly stepped away from the role of Rocky Balboa for good after Creed II, choosing not to return for Creed III, and signing off from The Expendables franchise with the upcoming fourth movie, it is not surprising that Stallone was asked about his thoughts on the future of Rambo.
Stallone mentioned that there was interest in Hollywood in doing a new Rambo sequel, but at 77 years old, the veteran actor used some humor to suggest that his time as John Rambo is complete.
"Rambo, I could leave him. He’s done pretty much, even though they want to do another one, but what am I fighting? Arthritis?"
In years past, Rambo has served as one of pop culture's most popular characters, going back to the release of the original film, First Blood, in 1982. Stallone would return as the enemy soldier slayer 1985's Rambo: First Blood Part II and 1988's Rambo III. The character has since made two unexpected returns, with Rambo releasing in 2008 followed by Rambo: Last Blood in 2019.
