Movie Rambo 5 by anyone

There were many different versions of it, some intriguing like one last Rambo in the vein of Unforgiven and No Country for Old Man, and some completely insane like Rambo vs supersoldiers from evil experiments. Here's some known versions:
Rambo V: The Savage Hunt - completely insane sci-fi version. It’s about Rambo and a team brought in to fight a “savage beast” of a man – A man that represents an “amalgamation of fury and intelligence”, who’d completely lost control and escaped the facility. There's also supersoldiers and evil experiments. Jeeez. Writer of it is unknown, maybe Sly himself.
Rambo: Last Stand - written by Sean Hood in 2011, story idea by Sly.
I met with Mr Stallone twice last year […] He gave me a book, an older screenplay, and about twenty pages he’d written himself to use as inspiration for the last chapter of the Rambo saga.
It’s more in line with the small-town thriller of First Blood. […] As of now, I don’t know whether Mr Stallone will actually do it. Right now, as I understand it, he has his hands full with Bullet to the Head and Expendables 2. But Millennium films did hire me to complete the screenplay and realise his story, and my hope is that he’ll eventually be inspired to do one more Rambo film, with the tone of Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven.
Rambo: Last Blood - the latest attempt to make it. It's unknown whether Sly finished the script or not, but at least he started writing it. Stallone described the planned film as "his version of No Country for Old Man". Rambo would have faced Mexican cartel. Ultimately Stallone pulled the plug on it.

I would actually love to read that one. Apparently, it was based from the novel Hunter by James Byron Huggins, although i kept finding different reports about how it either was or wasn't turned into script for fifth Rambo film. About the novel;

I never read it, but apparently, one of the rejected scripts for fourth Rambo film subtitled Borderline had similar plot, at least from what i heard. Also, right now, it doesn't look like any of those Rambo 5 scripts exist anywhere.

Stallone is actively preparing for the role, hopefully he'll be directing the movie too. The filming is slated to begin next month with Fall 2019 release date. The script is written by Matthew Cirulnick & Stallone. Plot synopsis:
Stallone’s return to action in the long-running series finds him living in a ranch in Arizona, deeply troubled and wrestling with PTSD as he picks up casual work wherever he can. When a long-time family friend and estate manager Maria informs Rambo that her grand-daughter has gone missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, he sets off with her to find the youngster. What ensues is a violent descent into hell as Rambo uncovers a sex-trafficking ring. He teams up with a journalist whose half-sister has also been kidnapped and must deploy all his skills to save the girls and bring down a vicious crime lord.

Interestingly it sounds basically the same premise as the unproduced Rambo: Borderline by Dan Gordon. What's funny is it's two new writers on it and he's not mentioned, wonder how different it will be then.

I liked when Stallone brought Rambo and Rocky back about ten years ago to give them one final send-off. Those films were actually good, and seemed fitting ends for the respective characters. To make another one now, it just seems like a desperation move after the Expendables franchise went to shit. You're an Oscar-nominated actor and writer, Sly. Surely you've got some unused ideas still floating around in that punchdrunk noodle of yours.

Personally, if Stallone is going to return to any well, I'd prefer it be Cobra. That flick was the exact kind of over-the-top action/splatter-fest that made '80s cop thrillers so much fun. I don't even care that he stole bits and pieces from various Chow Yun Fat characters to create Cobretti, that movie was bad-ass!

He'd probably call it Marion Cobretti. But Stallone probably won't touch that one since he considers it a disappointment box office wise. Which, to be frank, was ******* inevitable with it going up against Top Gun.

I think he'd be surprised if he were to do some snooping around online and saw how big a cult movie Cobra is (pun intended -- it's both a cult movie, and a movie about a cult, heh). And yeah, he would HAVE to call it Marion Cobretti, in keeping with his other full character name reboots/revisits/re-whatevers. If he didn't call it that, I'd be disappointed.

But I think there should be some films he should not revisit. For instance, no one, anywhere, at any time, has wanted, does want, or will ever want, a sequel to Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!

He sure does, going from what i heard over the years. One which sounded very interesting (to me at least) is The Bodyguard. Yeah it sounds lot like Man On Fire but still;

"Unproduced screenplay written by Sly in the mid 70s: a bodyguard hired to protect a millionaire's wife and child goes on a hunt for the killers after they succeed in their mission."

I'd also love to see him return to Cobra, maybe even re-use all the parts from early drafts of first film that were not used in the film (apparently that was one of the ideas for sequel in 80's), but considering not just the fact that he thinks it was a failure but also that he has bad history with that film, i can't see him returning to that character, which sucks, because Cobra is awesome.

^^^ Is that for real? Because I've been saying for years that the movie Sly REALLY needs to make is Cobra 2.

Man, I should work in Hollywood.
