Sylvester Stallone kicked off 2015 with the announcement that he will shortly be revisiting ‘Nam-vet one-man-army John Rambo. Taking to the Twitters, he revealed that the fifth Rambo movie will almost certainly also be the final one, since he’s confirmed its title as Last Blood.

It has been seven years since Stallone last reprised the role of Vietnam vet John Rambo. The last film, “Rambo,” earned $113 million worldwide.
Since 2008, he’s talked about both retiring the character (who first appeared in David Morrell’s 1972 novel “First Blood”) for good and bringing him back for a last hurrah. Stallone apparently decided on the latter as he’ll be writing and directing and “Rambo: Last Blood,” in addition to starring in the film.
