The 66-year-old actor says he can't retire because of 'Rambo'
Sylvester Stallone has hinted that he wants to make another Rambo movie.
The 66-year-old actor has played the Vietnam veteran-cum-mercenary in four films from 1982 to, most recently, 2008’s Rambo, where he battled a Burmese military regime.
However, Stallone, who is currently in Rome promoting his new action film Bullet To The Head, told assembled reporters that he hopes for at least one more big-screen war with Rambo, reports AFP.
“The Rambo thing, that’s why I don’t retire. I just see a guy unable to go home. He needs war and I see him dying there,” said Stallone. “If my damn body holds up, it’ll be really good. Otherwise it won’t be Rambo fighting; it’ll be Rambo fighting arthritis.”
Following the success of The Expendables franchise, Stallone is enjoying a late career revival. He is set to appear again with Arnold Schwarzenegger in a new action movie called The Tomb, which is due next year (2013).
Bullet To The Head, the forthcoming action thriller based on French graphic novel Du Plomb Dans La Tete, is scheduled for release in February 2013. The film stars Sylvester Stallone alongside Christian Slater and Holt McCallany.
