The upcoming 5th Rambo movie, ‘Rambo: Last Blood’ is scheduled to be released later this month.
However, there is trouble behind the scenes, as star and co-writer Sylvester Stallone is outraged they changed his original title.
“I was adamant it be called ‘Rambo number 5’. The only reason I agreed to do the movie was so we could call it that. If you have an opportunity like that, you’d be insane not to take it.”
The film will be the final installment in the franchise, starting with 1982’s ‘First Blood’.
Stallone has portrayed the character of John Rambo for nearly 40 years, and is hoping to go out with a bang.
“Yeah, sure ‘Last Blood’ makes sense. But I specifically wanted ‘Rambo number 5’. I’m outraged at my creative vision being manhandled this way.”
Stallone is planning to take studio behind the film to court, for refusing to adhere to his contract.
“My contract literally had two points on it; one, I get to make another Rambo; two, it must be called ‘Rambo number 5’. They changed it and screwed me over. Hollywood is full of people who have no idea what they’re doing.”
The film is predicted to have the biggest box office opening in the franchise’s history.
“It’s gonna be pretty big I think,” said Stallone, “But if it was called ‘Rambo number 5’ it’d make $1 billion in a week. I’m talking Marvel money. It’s just disheartening, you pour your blood and sweat into something, knowing it’ll be worth it at the end when you get a finished project called ‘Rambo number 5’, and then you have to see your dreams destroyed by men in suits who think they know better than anybody. In the 80s I would have had the power to call it that, but the irony is that song wouldn’t have come out, so nobody would get it.”
