Following word yesterday that the project was moving again, more details are emerging about Millennium Films’ plans for a fifth film in the “Rambo” franchise with a director to be announced shortly.
Shopping around the project at Cannes this week to cover worldwide sales, the new film will begin shooting in September in London, Bulgaria, and the Canary Islands with Sylvester Stallone once again in the lead.
A more detailed plot synopsis is also out and has Rambo coping with intense PTSD while living on a ranch in Arizona, trying to score casual work wherever he can.
Soon his friend and estate manager Maria informs him that her granddaughter went missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, so John travels south of the border to find the youngster.
The quest quickly turns into a violent descent into hell as Rambo uncovers a sex-trafficking ring, teaming up with a journalist whose half-sister has also been kidnapped.
Matt Cirulnick (“Absentia”) wrote the screenplay which Avi Lerner and Kevin King will produce.
