New “Conan the Barbarian” writer Sean Hood has reportedly submitted a screenplay for “Rambo: Last Stand” at Millennium Films reports Empire Online.
Hood says “I met with Mr Stallone twice last year. He gave me a book, an older screenplay, and about twenty pages he’d written himself to use as inspiration for the last chapter of the Rambo saga.”
Reportedly this take isn’t based on previously linked stories for another “Rambo” such as the sci-fi style “Savage Hunt”, nor the Mexico-set cartel kidnap tale. Rather Hood says “It’s more in line with the small-town thriller of First Blood.”
However he stresses that a script does not a movie make – “I don’t know whether Mr Stallone will actually do it. Right now, as I understand it, he has his hands full with Bullet to the Head and Expendables 2. But Millennium films did hire me to complete the screenplay and realise his story, and my hope is that he’ll eventually be inspired to do one more Rambo film, with the tone of Clint Eastwood’s ‘Unforgiven’.”
