Rambo V: The Savage Hunt
Rambo V: The Savage Hunt is a planned fifth film in the Rambo series. It was the original version of Last Blood back in 2009.
The storyline for Rambo V: The Savage Hunt was going to have Rambo been loosely based on the novel Hunter by James Byron Huggins and would have focused on Rambo leading an elite special forces kill team to hunt and kill a genetically engineered creature.
Why It Was Cancelled
- Stallone revealed he was "done" with the character, stating, "I think Rambo's pretty well done. I don't think there'll be any more. I'm about 99% sure I was going to do it ... but I feel that with Rocky Balboa, that character came complete circle. He went home. But for Rambo to go on another adventure might be, I think, misinterpreted as a mercenary gesture and not necessary. I don't want that to happen."
- The film was changed into Rambo: Last Blood, which it follows Rambo crossing the Mexican border to rescue a girl who had been kidnapped. Rambo: Last Blood wasn't well-received by the fans.
