Stallone says Rambo won’t be fighting ISIS in ‘Last Blood’
A representative for Sylvester Stallone denied claims that actor will be fighting ISIS in new film
A representative for Sylvester Stallone has stated that the “Rambo” star will not be fighting ISIS in an upcoming “Rambo” movie, as reported by Rolling Stone earlier this week.
Rumors began to circulate on the internet that the actor-filmmaker would reprise his legendary role as war veteran John Rambo in a new film called “Rambo: Last Blood”, quoting that the 68-year-old actor confirmed the remake of the movie at Comic-Con 2015 and that he was looking for familiar locations to that of Syria so that they can recreate the environment to film a realistic war against the ISIS.
However, a representative for Stallone denied those claims, telling the Rolling Stones that “Sylvester Stallone did not attend Comic-Con 2015, and consequently there was no official remark from him regarding Rambo made there at the event.”
Although the ISIS plot of the film is allegedly false, it seems that Stallone confirmed plans for “Rambo: Last Blood” in December via Twitter when he posted:"Doing Scarpa based on Gangster Greg Scarpa after LAST BLOOD RAMBO," referencing Scarpa, an upcoming drama based on the infamous mob hitman.
