Hoping to nip a growing swell of Internet rumors in the bud, Sylvester Stallone has communicated to Deadline that he absolutely is not taking part in the Tiger Shroff’s 'First Blood,' a redo of the 1982 film that launched the 'Rambo' franchise. Through a spokesperson, Stallone states that “any involvement in Tiger Sharoff’s 'Rambo' is not happening, under any circumstances.”
Despite saying for years that he was working on a script for Rambo V, Sylvester Stallone revealed in a new interview with Variety that he has no intention of reprising his role as the iconic military war hero. Stallone noted that he was content with where 2008’s Rambo IV left the character, which he first played in 1982. “You know when you realize there’s nothing more to pull out?” Stallone says.
