Sylvester Stallone set to play Rambo again in a new installment of the long-running action classic series





Sylvester Stallone has confirmed that he will play the role of John Rambo again in the fifth installment of the series.

Stallone, 72, will once again engage in cinematic carnage, taking on Mexican cartel gangs this time around in Rambo: The last blood.

The Rambo series began in 1982 with First Blood, where John Rambo, an ex-green beret and Vietnam veteran falls foul of over-zealous local law enforcement because of his appearance. This kicks off a violent chain of events that culminate in urban warfare.

The Rambo franchise spawned three sequels in which the rampaging protagonist mowed his way through an assorted menagerie of bad guys, including Vietnamese soldiers, Soviet troops in Afghanistan, and Burmese militia.

Filming is due to start in September of this year.
