During an interview with Variety Sylvester Stallone talked Rambo V, Creed 2, and his noticeable absence from the upcoming Rambo: New Blood TV series.
On potential plans for Creed 2: “You’ll have him face a different opponent, which I would say is a more ferocious, big Russian. There’s a lot there.”
On Rambo V: “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.”
On involvement with Rambo: New Blood: “I don’t want to cast aspersions, but it’s delicate to try to replace a character with his son. I’ve seen the son of Flicka, the son of Tarzan, the son of King Kong. It’s a very difficult premise.”
