`Rambo V` not happening, says Sylvester Stallone
New York: Sylvester Stallone, who was set to reprise his iconic role in the fifth part of `Rambo` series, has decided not to make the movie.
Stallone was to work on `Rambo V: The Savage Hunt` but the actor has changed his mind, saying the story had changed course, reported Empire magazine online.
"I think Rambo`s pretty well done. I don`t think there`ll be any more. I`m about 99 per cent sure. I was going to do it. But for Rambo to go on another adventure might be, I think, misinterpreted as a mercenary gesture and not necessary. I don`t want that to happen," he said.
"I`m very happy with the last Burmese episode, because I didn`t pull any punches on it. I wanted it to be what civil war really is - rough. You can`t candy coat it, and where do you go from there? So that`s going to go," he added.
However, the actor is not completely done with Rambo as he is currently working on a new director`s cut of the fourth film that will add 12 minutes of footage, including a surprising outburst of loquaciousness for the mumbling man of action at the movie`s beginning.
The `Rambo` story may have ended but the 63-year-old star is ready to start a new franchise based on his upcoming film feature `The Expendables`.
The movie is yet to release but the actor has already started working on a sequel.
"We are very serious... we`re already working on an [Expendables] sequel," said Stallone.
