Stallone promises that “the film will be in dramatic color.”
Although he recently put his involvement in the Rocky series to bed, Sylvester Stallone is not ready to let Rambo go just yet. The first movie in the series, First Blood, came out in 1982 and now, 37 years later, the series will close with the neatly book-ended name Last Blood.
The movie has now finished shooting and Stallone evidently is already feeling nostalgia for a series that has accompanied him through his whole life. He shared a photo on Instagram of the new movie (and is promising another “every few days until the MOVIE comes out”) in which he, as cowboy-Rambo, sits on a horse and looks at a house. He challenges the viewer to “see if you can follow along with the story using your imagination.”
The plot of the new Rambo is a shade off of Liam Neeson’s Taken, with Rambo going down to Mexico to retrieve a friend’s kidnapped daughter. The real story, though, is not in the destination but one of the writers of film, David Morrell, called a “soulful journey.”
