Is ‘Rambo 5’ Using Real ISIS Terrorists as the Enemy?

Is ‘Rambo 5’ Using Real ISIS Terrorists as the Enemy?

When asked to clarify if he plans on hiring actual ISIS militants for the sequel, the actor only said that he's "really excited to talk about Creed today," and, according to The Washington Post, the subject was not brought up again. We haven't heard about Rambo: Last Blood since December 2014, when Sylvester Stallone confirmed the long-rumored title on his Twitter page. In June 2014, Splendid Media acquire the rights to the franchise, with Sylvester Stallone writing the screenplay for this follow-up, but it isn't known if he plans to direct as well.

In Sylvester Stallone's last outing as John Rambo, 2008's Rambo, the actor/filmmaker hired an ex-guerrilla Burmese soldier from the Shan State Army named Maung Maung Khin to play the villainous Tint in his feature film debut, and other Shan refugees and migrants from northern Thailand were hired as extras to play Burmese soldiers. It isn't known exactly what is looking for in Iraq and Syria for this action sequel, since no story details have been confirmed, and it isn't known when production may begin. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any developments, but, in the meantime, what do you think about Rambo: Last Blood set in the world of ISIS?

Sylvester Stallone Reveals First ‘Rocky’ Spin-off Photo

Sylvester Stallone Reveals First ‘Rocky’ Spin-off Photo

Sylvester Stallone took to his Instagram page earlier today to reveal the first official photo from his Rocky spinoff Creed, which is slated for release on November 25. Hopefully the debut of this photo means the first trailer is just around the corner, but we don't have a confirmed date for the trailer's release. The photo shows Sylvester Stallone reprising his iconic role as Rocky Balboa, as he trains Michael B. Jordan's Adonis Johnson, the son of Carl Weathers' Apollo Creed.

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo-the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.

Sylvester Stallone Returns as ‘Rocky’ in ‘Creed’ Photos

Sylvester Stallone Returns as ‘Rocky’ in ‘Creed’ Photos

Just a few weeks after Warner Bros. gave a November 25 release date for their Rocky spinoff Creed, new photos have emerged from the Philadelphia set, featuring Sylvester Stallone reprising his role as Rocky Balboa, and Michael B. Jordan as the grandson of Apollo Creed. The story follows Creed as he tries to start a boxing career, with Balboa reluctantly coming aboard to serve as his new trainer. Tessa Thompson also stars as the female lead, although no specific details were given about her character.

The plot is also said to delve into the Rocky franchise mythology, although we don't know much more about the story. Real-life boxer Andre Ward will play Creed's nemesis Pretty Ricky Porter, with another boxer, Tony Bellew, also starring in an unspecified role. It isn't known how much shooting remains on the project, with the release just nine months away.

Sylvester Stallone Confirms ‘Rambo 5: Last Blood’ Title?

Sylvester Stallone Confirms ‘Rambo 5: Last Blood’ Title?

4 months ago, an auspicious rumor began to float around the Internet that Rambo 5 was going to be titled Rambo: Last Blood. Suddenly very active on Twitter after a short absence, Sylvester Stallone has now seemingly confirmed that title, while also confirming that this long-awaited sequel will be next on his to-do list.

Shortly after The Expendables 3 tanked in America this past summer (don't worry, it made up its profits overseas), Sylvester Stallone claimed to be returning to the world of Vietnam Vet John Rambo in what has been described as the character's last adventure. Sylvester Stallone plans on directing the movie himself. But it seems he'll be reprising his most iconic role as Rocky Balboa beforehand, in the spinoff Creed. As you may remember, Sylvester Stallone had previously stated that 2006's Rocky Balboa (aka Rocky 6) would be that character's last run. That proved to be very far from the truth, as Rocky may continue to appear in the Creed series, if it becomes a franchise. Though, SPOILER ALERT, it has been revealed that Rocky has cancer in an earlier Tweet from the action icon. It doesn't look like Rocky dies in Creed, but we can expect that he won't make it all the way through Creed 2.
