After recently reviving perhaps his most iconic film character as Rocky Balboa in Creed and the upcoming Creed II, Sylvester Stallone is now getting ready to start filming a sequel to another one of his beloved characters. Stallone will be bringing John Rambo back to the big screen with Rambo 5 as production is just about ready to begin.
Stallone shared two new photos for Rambo 5 on his official Instagram account. As you can see, Rambo is sporting a new western look and is even saddling up for the action.
You can check out Stallone’s two new photos down below:
Rambo 5 has been long in development, and has been described to follow the beloved character on his latest adventure in which he must rescue his friend’s daughter that has just been kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel. Likely, in pure Rambo fashion, bloody brutality ensues.

Meanwhile, Sylvester Stallone will next be seen starring in Creed II with Michael B. Jordan. Here is the synopsis:
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
Directed by Steven Caple Jr. from a script written by Cheo Hodari Coker and Sylvester Stallone, Creed II stars Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Dolph Lundgren, Wood Harris, Andre Ward, and Buddy Marcelle.
Creed II will be released in theaters on November 21, 2018.
