Looks like there’s going to be a lot of stabbing and shooting in the upcoming sequel, taking place in Mexico. Pop culture themed publication Geeks Worldwide first revealed the plot; “Rambo teams up with a journalist to track down and rescue a group of local girls that have been kidnapped by a Mexican sex trafficking ring, after trying to settle down to a quiet peaceful life stateside at the family ranch in Arizona after spending decades abroad.”
Casting process has begun
Few audition videos were leaked online for the tertiary lead roles after the journalist and John Rambo himself. One of the auditions leaked was for the character of Robert Siedel, who gets kidnapped by Rambo because he has information about the whereabouts of innocent girls trapped in the scandal. The auditions showed there are two more male characters, Victor and Hugo, who Rambo is searching for because they too have information. The last video from the leaked auditions showed a Mexican actress auditioning for the role of Gabrielle, a Latin character.
Last Rambo film had average reviews
Released in 2008, the fourth instalment witnessed John Rambo come out of retirement and rescue the Burmese army after being called for help. The film failed to live up to the expectations of the franchise that dominated the ’80s and made Sylvester Stallone an action cult figure. Hopes are that the upcoming final instalment will end the series on a high note.
Sylvester Stallone is returning as Rocky in Creed 2
Besides Rambo, the Hollywood legend is returning to his iconic role, Rocky Balboa in Creed 2, sequel to the spin-off series named after Rocky’s pal, Apollo Creed and this time, he’s training Adonis Creed to fight against the son of who used to be Rocky’s Russian rival; Ivan Drago.
