Harvey Weinstein Wants More Rambo Sequels

Also wants the Florida Marlins to go to the Super Bowl.

Okay, so maybe Rambo had its opening weekend coming-out party ruined by an embarrassing second-place finish behind Meet the Spartans. You think that means another sequel is out of the question?

According to Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood Daily, Harvey Weinstein is already making lemonade out of Rambo‘s $18.1 million gross, saying he expects the film to wind up raking in $150 million worldwide when all is said and done. Weinstein (or, as Finke refers to him, “Harv”) is already talking plot for the next sequel, saying he’s interested in “bringing the character back to the United States.”

Of course, as Finke is quick to point out, The Weinstein Company is only a co-distributor on the franchise at this point, and a sequel would “not benefit [TWC] one bit.” (It’s worth noting that the Weinsteins actually passed on Sylvester Stallone‘s idea for the current sequel.) So why is Weinstein so excited about another Rambo? Maybe it all boils down to the fact that, as he told Finke, “I like the idea of an older guy kicking ass.”
