Sylvester Stallone has confirmed at Comic-Con that the latest installment in the Rambo films franchise will have the Vietnam War veteran taking on the Islamic State. Rambo V: Last Blood will take place in the deserts of Iraq and Syria which are currently occupied by the extremist Islamist militia group, ISIS.
We have teams scouting Iraq and parts of Syria where ISIS have their greatest strongholds. We’re working with the locals there to help deliver the most intense and realistic Rambo movie experience ever.
Filming is expected to begin soon. And with this announcement, Stallone has undoubtedly placed a big target on his back for ISIS sympathizers to aim at. But we doubt he cares.
