The fifth installment of the action film 'Rambo' is reportedly going to take place in Bulgaria to tone down the filming budget.
As the fifth installment of the iconic action movie "Rambo" has been rumored to be developed, it was further reported that the shooting for "Rambo 5" is going to take place in one of the Southern European countries. According to Internet reports, the follow-up to the action film starring Sylvester Stallone will be heading to Bulgaria due to the low-cost filming there.
Despite reported to being shot in the former communist country, the fifth Rambo film will be set in the U.S. MovieHole.net claimed that the setting of the action film will be resembling a town in Arizona. "The street sets of Bulgaria that are getting the makeover, the same ones that were rented out and used in Van Damme's The Shepherd, will be doubling for Rambo's hometown, which is supposed to somewhere in Arizona," a source told the movie news site.
Allegedly, this fifth film will once again see Stallone as the star, and it might have been the last from the "Rambo" franchise. Many speculated that the film will be continuing the recently-release "Rambo" film as at the end the iconic character can be seen returning to visit his father in Arizona. Meanwhile, regarding the fourth "Rambo" which has been released on January 25, 2008, has pulled in $42.7 million in the U.S. alone and has grossed $101.3 million worldwide.
