Stallone Plots Another Rambo
Action hero Sylvester Stallone has reneged on his promise to abandon the Rambo franchise - following the surprise success of his character's big screen comeback. The Hollywood star disappointed fans of the movies last month (Jan08) by dismissing reports he would pen another sequel, stating it "can't go any further". However, the 61-year-old has dramatically u-turned on his stance, telling British talkshow host Jonathan Ross, "I'd love to go back to Rambo again. You don't get to play that kind of character very often. "At first it was stereotyped but now I'm really proud to have done it. It's timely. Ten years ago it wouldn't have been right." The fourth installment, simply titled Rambo, took over $18 million (GBP9 million) in its opening weekend when it was released in America on 25 January (08).
