Just a week ago, Sylvester Stallone posted a video on his Instagram account from the set of Creed II. The clip, taken on the last day of production, featured Stallone talking about the ride it has been playing the role of Rocky Balboa for over 50 years and how this recent film will potentially be his last time as “The Italian Stallion.” Now, as Creed II sits at 83% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and closes in on $100 million at the box office in its second week, Stallone may be saying goodbye to another of his legendary characters.
Early Tuesday, Stallone posted a clip on his Instagram stating that production on Rambo V: Last Blood has wrapped. Seated in the driver’s side of what seems to be a pickup truck, the iconic action star details how he was chosen to play the tortured Vietnam vet back in 1982. Check out the clip below:
Stallone has had quite a ride since he burst onto the Hollywood scene over 50 years ago. Its garnered him Academy Award nominations, Golden Globe victories and a decades-long career as an action movie hero. Aside from Rocky Balboa and John Rambo, Stallone is well known for his roles in Cobra, Tango & Cash, Demolition Man, Cliffhanger, The Specialist, Judge Dredd, Assassins, Cop Land, Antz, The Expendables and even appearing as himself on the current NBC hit series This Is Us.
In what is said to be his final film, Rambo V: Last Blood pits the embattled veteran against a Mexican cartel. The film is written by Stallone and Matthew Cirulnick, while Adrian Grunberg (Get The Gringo) takes the helm as director. Grunberg has been the assistant director for such films as Traffic, Man On Fire, Jarhead and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
Rambo V: Last Blood will release sometime in 2019.
