Although it's very early days, the film isn't even reported to be shooting until September this year, a synopsis has been leaked by Screen Daily.

According to the site, the fifth film will find Rambo 'deeply troubled and wrestling with PTSD', living on a ranch in Arizona.

The granddaughter of his 'long-time family friend and estate manager' Maria goes missing after crossing the border into Mexico. So, being John Rambo, he decides to go and track her down. The action-hero teams up with a journalist, whose half sister has been kidnapped, and they uncover a sex-trafficking ring. The pair then set about bringing down a crime lord and rescuing the girls.

I'm getting serious Taken vibes and I honestly can't wait to see this.

John Rambo first hit the silver screen way back in 1982's First Blood. That was followed by First Blood: Part Two, Rambo III, and 2008's Rambo. The new movie doesn't have an official title yet, but Rambo No 5 seems a popular choice on social media.

A few years back, Stallone hinted at am unwillingness to reprise the role, he told Variety: "The heart's willing, but the body says, 'Stay home'.

"It's like fighters that go back for one last round and get clobbered. Leave it to someone else."


But it looks like he's a complete U-turn and decided to give it another go.

And who can blame him following the recent revival of Rocky for the Creed movies - after the success of Creed, Stallone has recently worked on Creed II, which is due to hit cinemas in November this year.
