Sylvester Stallone prepares for "Rambo 5"

August 18th, 2014

Sylvester Stallone is preparing to appear in 'Rambo 5'.

Stallone, 68, recently starred in the third instalment of the 'Expendables' franchise - in which he appeared alongside the likes of Harrison Ford and Jason Statham - and he's already working towards starring in 'Rambo 5'.

He said: ''I'm getting ready for 'Rambo 5'. I'm starting to work out. I'm going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual.

''A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We're going to try to cover all the boundaries.''

The fifth 'Rambo' film will see the central character - played by Stallone - face off against a Mexican cartel, with the action hero having previously described the much-hyped flick as his version of 'No Country for Old Men', the neo-Western thriller starring Javier Bardem and Tommy Lee Jones.

There is also the expectation that Stallone will reprise the role of boxing champion Rocky Balboa in a new movie called 'Creed', which will see the iconic character mentor the grandson of his rival-turned-friend Apollo Creed.

The lead role in the flick is to be played by Michael B. Jordan, who is best known for playing the role of Wallace in 'The Wire'.
