He could just be playing hardball with the studio, of course, but we prefer to take Sly at his word, and here’s what he told The Guardian:
“This is the last Rambo just as Rocky Balboa is the last Rocky. I can’t go any further. It was a miracle that it even got done.”
The fourth Rambo debuted last weekend to a surprising second-place finish behind Meet the Spartans. Not the most dignified way for the character to go out, but hey — you can certainly do worse than a 35 percent Tomatometer and #2 at the box office, and maybe Stallone doesn’t want to find that out the hard way.
