ABACAPRESS photoAction hero Rambo may make a return to the big screen for one last battle, Hollywood veteran Sylvester Stallone said on Nov 14 in Rome where his latest gun-toting buddy flick screened its world premiere.
“The Rambo thing, that’s why I don’t retire. I just see a guy unable to go home. He needs war and I see him dying there,” Stallone said about the Vietnam veteran he played in a series of four films from 1982 to 2008.
“If my damn body holds up, it’ll be really good. Otherwise it won’t be Rambo fighting, it’ll be Rambo fighting arthritis,” the 66-year-old said.
A hired killer
Stallone also said he hoped that he had created an icon for the new generation with his performance as a hired killer with a heart in Walter Hill’s 1980s-style action film “Bullet to the Head.” Tthe movie tells the tale of mercenary Jimmy Bobo (Stallone) who unwillingly links up with a straight-laced, technologically-savvy cop (Sung Kang) when their partners are murdered.
