Rambo goes sci-fi

The action franchise enters a new phase.

RamboVIn a surprising twist, reports have surfaced that Rambo’s next action-packed adventure will be of a sci-fi nature. With this genre news announced by Ain’t It Cool News, and backed up both by Sylvester Stallone himself and a rather snazzy poster mock-up (see left), the website has published a full synopsis for this project – titled Rambo V: The Savage Hunt – as well as an voicemail message from Sly.

So what can we expect from this fifth Rambo adventure? Well, early plot details see Rambo getting drafted into a mission down in the Arctic Circle. There, he must hunt a feral beast that has escaped from a secret research facility. Concocted through experiments by the US military, this beast has been described by Sly as boasting a “man’s cunning, a predator’s savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages.”  Saying the film will be like Predator meets The Thing is probably wishful thinking, but you can still count us in as excited about this one.

Rambo V: The Savage Hunt is going into production spring next year and will be released at a later date.
