Fandom was left stunned when Sylvester Stallone announced that he’d follow up the fairly well-received Rambo with a movie where John Rambo hunted down a genetically altered monster. What, people asked, is this shit?
Sly listened to the baffled cries from his fans and has changed the script for Rambo 5. Gone is the monster, back in are evil Mexicans! Stallone contacted the folks at StalloneZone and let them know about the change:
I’m letting you know that Rambo has changed course and the story about hunting the man/beast will be done using another character in the lead. RAMBO himself will be heading over the border to a violent city where many young women have vanished .
There will be blood.
Oh thank God. Rambo raining destruction on an ethnic minority is exactly what we want in a Rambo film, and I hope that Rambo 5 continues the insane levels of gore begun in the previous chapter.
