Sylvester Stallone is rumored to have his last battle as Rambo in 2015 in a new film entitled 'Rambo: Last Blood'. Apparently, the American actor, screenwriter, and and film director, expressed his enthusiasm to do another Rambo movie in his interview with Maclean's magazine.

"I'm dying to do another Rambo," Stallone said, "He's in Arizona on the border. It will involve him going into Mexico. I don't think Rambo likes Mexicans."

When the actor was asked if he will kill Rambo off in the next movie, Stallone hinted at the idea that John Rambo will finally meet his demise.

Stallone last portrayed John Rambo, the protagonist of the movie, in the 2008 film 'Rambo IV' which made a gross of almost $115 million worldwide with only $50 million budget. Stallone was the writer and director of the film.

The plot for the upcoming sequel was first speculated to involve Rambo fighting human traffickers and drug lords to save a young girl, who was abducted near the United States-Mexico border.

However, plans changed and Stallone is rumored to write the fifth installment based on the James Byron Huggin's novel entitled 'Hunter'. The story presents a protagonist and Special ops "hired to hunt and kill a ferocious beast, which is the product of illegal genetic engineering experiments, that has slaughtered and destroyed research facilities and is on its way to civilization."

Meanwhile, an online flash game, which was developed by 'The Last of Us' designer Peter Javidpour, was rumored to inspire the title of the upcoming Rambo movie. Despite having the same title, it is doubtful that the movie will follow the plot of the game, where Rambo is killed by a bus and goes running and hugging ninjas to atone for his sins.

Avi Lerner, who has worked repeatedly with Stallone, will produce 'Last Blood' for Millennium Films. Local crewing services in Shreveport, Louisiana have started recruiting staff to work on the film, with a posted production start date of October 27th, 2014.
