The 'Expendables' ringleader says he's 'starting to work out' to get ready for his return as John Rambo in the fifth film.
The fifth "Rambo" movie is getting closer to happening, six years after the last film in 2008. In a new interview with Vulture, Sylvester Stallone spilled that he was getting ready for the long-gestating project now that he completes "The Expendables 3".
"I'm getting ready for ['Rambo 5']. I'm starting to work out," he said. "I'm going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual. A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We're going to try to cover all the boundaries."
In the next movie, John Rambo will face off a Mexican cartel. Stallone previously described the new Rambo as "his version of 'No Country for Old Men'."
Besides gearing up for "Rambo 5", Sly is expected to reprise another of his iconic role as Rocky Balboa in a spin-off called "Creed". The boxer will mentor the grandson of his rival-turned-friend Apollo Creed. Michael B. Jordan is tapped to portray to protege.
