Sylvester Stallone has taken to Instagram to announce that filming has wrapped on Rambo V: Last Blood, which is expected to mark the action icon’s final outing as the Vietnam veteran and all-round killing machine.
“Well that was it, that was my final shot,” states Stallone. “And Rambo V: Last Blood, at least that’s what they are calling it, thus far, it’s been an amazing journey, it really has. This character was presented to me in 1980. And no one wanted to do it. As a matter of fact, I was the eleventh choice. People looked at this as almost as a cursed project. I looked at it and said this was an amazing opportunity.”
Rambo V: Last Blood will see the former Green Beret pulled out his peaceful retirement as a horse rancher as he ventures across the U.S.-Mexican border to rescue his friend’s kidnapped daughter, only to find himself up against the full might of one of Mexico’s most ruthless drug cartels.
Adrian Grunberg (Get the Gringo) directs, with Stallone joined in the cast by Paz Vega (The OA), Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Snowfall), Adriana Barraza (The Strain), Yvette Monreal (Faking It), Oscar Jaenada (The Shallows) and Joaquin Cosio (Narcos: Mexico).
