Sylvester Stallone throws in the towel for Rambo film

For the past few years, there were rumors of a potential new Rambo movie in the works. But, in a recent interview with Variety, Sylvester Stallone says he’s officially letting go of Rambo. The Sly we know and love was very sentimental in the interview and was very reminiscent to his on-screen character, Rocky. He says that both his heart is still into it, but his body isn’t:

“The heart’s willing, but the body says, ‘Stay home! It’s like fighters that go back for one last round and get clobbered. Leave it to someone else.”

Stallone emphasizes that in his last Rambo film, he knew it was going to be his last action film where he was playing the main lead. He then goes on to say that he has come full-circle with his Rambo films.

“You know when you realize there’s nothing more to pull out? As an action film, I was very satisfied that it dealt with the Burmese situation. It had one foot in a current event, the longest civil war in history, 65 years at that time. It was so brutal, which civil war is, I was shocked they even gave me an R-rating. I didn’t want to compromise. I said, ‘This is probably going to be the last decent film of this genre that I’m going to do as a solo act.’ When that was accomplished, I never felt the same willingness to do it again. There’s nothing left. When they asked me to do another ‘Rambo,’ I said, ‘If I can’t do better than I did last time, and I can’t, then why.”

How do you guys feel about Stallone being officially done with Rambo?
