. Though Stallone had previously hinted that a new RAMBO film might jump genres (leading to this article at JoBlo.com where we speculated on who Rambo would battle), it's pretty standard fare for the fifth installment.

It would seem likely though as they've worked together on Stallone's last two films. RAMBO is expected to begin production next spring after Stallone wraps promotion
