Now Playing: Rambo 5 Is Now In Production, Title And New Image Revealed - GameSpot Universe News Update

Although the 1976 boxing classic Rocky and its sequels gave Sylvester Stallone considerable success, it was also his other series--the Rambo movies--that helped make him one of the biggest Hollywood stars of the 1980s. It's been a decade since 2008's Rambo, the confusingly-titled fourth film in the series, was released, but production is now underway on the fifth entry in the action franchise. The movie's title has now been revealed.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it will be titled Rambo 5: Last Blood, which is a reference to the first film in the series, 1981's First Blood. Stallone also posted a new image from the movie to Instagram, which shows John Rambo in his "man cave." Check it out below:

THR also stated that the movie will see Rambo "take on the Mexican drug cartels after the daughter of one of his friends is kidnapped." Spanish star Paz Vega (Spanglish, The OA) has also joined the cast, and will play "Carmen Delgado, a reporter who covers the Mexican drug trade and teams up with Rambo after her younger half-sister is kidnapped."

While Stallone himself helmed Rambo, he is not directing this one. Instead Last Blood will be directed by Adrian Grunberg, who previously made the Mel Gibson thriller Get the Gringo. The movie doesn't currently have a release date, but it's likely to appear in 2019.

In related news, Stallone returns to the screen next month as Rocky Balboa in Creed 2. The sequel to 2015's successful Rocky spin-off Creed sees Stallone reunite with star Michael B. Jordan, and the latest trailer was released last month.
