The other showed off Rambo’s “small knife.” “He is still making the BIG one,” Stallone wrote on Instagram.
The official title of the fifth Rambo movie is Rambo 5: Last Blood, a clear reference to the franchise’s end, or perhaps a reset, since the first movie was titled First Blood.
Last Blood will show Rambo taking on Mexican drug cartels after the daughter of one of his friends is kidnapped, Digital Spy reports. Paz Vega has joined the cast as the female lead, playing a reporter named Carmen Delgado; it’s her half-sister who is kidnapped, so she teams up with Rambo to get her back.
Yvette Monreal has joined the cast as Gabrielle, the woman who is kidnapped, and Sergio Peris-Mencheta will play Hugo Martinez, the main villain who is the leader of a violent drug cartel.
The movie will be shooting in Bulgaria and Spain. It will be directed by Adrian Grunberg, who has directed worked on Netflix’s Narcos and Sense8, with a script co-written by Stallone and Matt Cirulnick. It’s scheduled to hit theaters in fall 2019.
