The next Rambo movie isn't just going to be a bunch of sweaty guys running around the jungle. According to Variety, Julie Benz has been signed to star as the female lead in Sylvester Stallone's sequel John Rambo.

The next chapter finds Rambo recruited by a group of Christian human rights missionaries to protect them against pirates, during a humanitarian aid deliver to the persecuted Karen people of Burma. After some of the missionaries are taken prisoner by sadistic Burmese soldiers, Rambo gets a second impossible job: to assemble a team of mercenaries to rescue the surviving relief workers.

It is currently slated to be released in 2008.
