Sylvester Stallone Teases Yet Another John Rambo Film

The 'Rocky' and 'Expendables' movie star, now 72 years old, may revive one of his best-known characters

Sylvester Stallone may not be done shooting up communist bad guys on the big screen just yet as action hero John Rambo.

Stallone previously played the role in four popular films.

The last of those was 2008’s “Rambo,” a movie the actor also directed.

On Sunday, Stallone dropped an image resembling a cinematic poster with four cryptic words that teased a fifth “Rambo” flick: “A SAVAGE RISING! … soon.”

Later, on Instagram, Stallone also revealed a second hint that a fifth “Rambo” may be in the works when he wrote, “The Devil came from Arizona @rambomovie.”

The four installments of the “Rambo” franchise — in which Stallone plays a Vietnam veteran who has trouble reintegrating into society — have earned unadjusted worldwide total earnings of over $700 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

Stallone is 72 years old. The actor was only 36 when he first appeared as John Rambo in “First Blood.”

Rambo is not the only character Stallone refuses to give up. He’s also still appearing as boxer Rocky Balboa on the big screen. The first “Rocky” film came out when Stallone (who also wrote the film) was 30 years old.

He will next appear as Balboa in “Creed II” this November.

While John Rambo is not quite as beloved as Rocky Balboa, the character still headlined four popular — and patriotic — films people still celebrate.

Despite his age, Stallone’s return to his other signature character is no doubt welcome news for many of his fans.
