Huh. It looks like of all the things you need for a Rambo movie, Sylvester Stallone is no longer one of them

News has come out that Nu Image/Millennium Films is set to reboot the movie franchise without the actor who made the war vet a household name – albeit a bloodsoaked one.

A younger actor will take on the role of John Rambo in the movie, currrently titled Rambo: New Blood, and the aim apparently is to make Rambo a James Bond type of franchise.


No other details are really known at this point but, as always, as and when news breaks we’ll keep you all posted.

In fairness, Stallone has said he wouldn’t be back as Rambo (here) and we’re wondering if this means the TV series (here) is dead in the water?

Do you want more Rambo? More specifically, do you want it with out Stallone?

Let us know in all the usual ways….

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
