Sylvester Stallone is "intrigued" by the idea of a 'Rambo' prequel.

The veteran actor - who played Vietnam war veteran John Rambo in four movies - is open to the possibility of seeing a younger star cast in the lead role to explain the origins of the character and would even like to direct the film.

When asked about the possibility of a prequel, he said: "I certainly think this is worth pondering because it's intriguing to find the whys and wherefores of how people have come to become what they are.

"The traumas, the loss and the tragedy of being in Vietnam would certainly be a great challenge for a young actor and it would be ironic that Rambo directs younger Rambo after having played it for 20 plus years."

The 'Expendables' star also reassured fans he is not planning to work on a much-proposed 'Death Wish' remake as he doesn't feel it would be appreciated.

He added to Ain't It Cool News: "The strange thing is that the majority of classics really don't hold up well visually but hold up very strongly in people's hearts and minds.

"I experienced that with 'Get Carter' which I thought was a technically better film than the original, yet it garnered little favourability because primary impression is the most lasting."
