Stallone Talks Fifth “Rambo” Storyline

Sylvester Stallone tells AICN that upcoming fifth installment of the John Rambo series, “Rambo V: A Savage Hunt”, will be quite different from the previous films.

Though the film returns to the Pacific Northwest setting of the first film, the story has Rambo leading a Black Ops squad to hunt, capture or kill an escaped military experiment. That experiment? An unstable escapee from a group of soldiers on a program designed to yield instinctual killers with no moral compunction about taking life.

The general idea seems to be a role-reversal of the first film, with Rambo the hunter instead of the hunted this time out. Still sounds a little too “Universal Soldier” for my taste.
