Tom Sizemore has taken to crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to raise funds for his passion project An Honest Thief, a noir-ish thriller that the Heat and Saving Private Ryan actor is putting together as a starring vehicle. It’s his first film as a producer and a step toward rebuilding his up-and-down career following a public relapse in January, but Sizemore says he has refocused his sights on sobriety and is optimistic. “I want to get back,” he said over the phone Wednesday. “I want to make something I look forward to.”
An Honest Thief is written by the actor’s younger brother Aaron Sizemore and tracks three outcasts who plot to steal a prized baseball card collection from a local pawnbroker. Belgian helmer Giorgio Serafini (Gente Di Mare) is attached to direct the pic, which is set in Sizemore’s hometown of Detroit and will film on location. Sizemore will play Danny St. »

Apes and aging action heroes wrestled for supremacy at the top of the Chinese box office charts last week, with Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes just beating out Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables 3 for the number one spot. The latest installment in the Planet of the Apes franchise grossed $20.08 million, according to calculations by the research body Entgroup, bringing its cume to $102.26 million after 17 days. The movie had 142,097 screenings and 3.36 million admissions. The weekly figure put it marginally ahead of Lionsgate and Millennium's Expendables 3, which took $20.

With November Man out, excitement for Pierce Bosnan’s return to spying is at an all-time high for many James Bond fans. November Man, based on the seventh installment of Bill Granger’s book series called There Are No Spies, is about ex- CIA agent Peter Devereaux (Pierce Bosnan). While living a quiet life in Switzerland, Devereaux is ejected out of retirement for one last mission. Although the concept of the “one last mission/job” is not a new concept for Hollywood, it definitely has its place in cinema history, branching out to a wide range of reasons why our beloved characters are being pulled back into their past lives. From a retiree’s last gig, to the bad-boy-gone-good-and-then-bad-again mission, to the revenge premise, mythology of the ex-professional can surely delight and excite us to champion our heroes for one last fight. Here are scenes from ten incredible “one last job” films, »

Oh, what is that you’re saying, you didn’t know there was a 5th Rambo movie on the way? Well there you have it then, Sylvester Stallone will play John Rambo for one last time in Rambo: Last Blood, according to Comingsoon.com. It all started with First Blood back in 1982, an action movie about a […]
One of the more purely entertaining docs at Tiff this year was “Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films,” partly because it featured nudity, sex and break-dancing. But among the points it makes is that the shameless cheese factory that was Cannon consistently made movies that were shadows of other movies. Chuck Norris’ “Missing in Action” recalled Sylvester Stallone’s “Rambo”; “King Solomon’s Mines” wanted to be “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” “Death Wish II” and III, and IV, were dying to be “Death Wish," etc., etc. The 2014 Tiff documentaries, for all their socially progressive virtues and occasionally virtuosic flourishes, echoed other movies, too – unavoidably, in some instances. There are only so many ways you can go with a certain topic; and if you’re selling ideas, style often gets in the way. While all docs are, with any luck, about ideas, some require a filmmaker to »

When it comes to Sylvester Stallone, never count a franchise as dead. Despite the success of his latest film series, the Expendables (although the returns are diminishing), he is bringing back his two most iconic characters: Rocky and Rambo.
Stallone told ComingSoon that John Rambo will fight again in Rambo: Last Blood. Despite wrapping up the character in Rambo (2008) and the fact that the character, like the actor, is advancing in age, the Vietnam veteran will be back in action one more time. Stallone is giving away no plot details, but he hints that this will be the No Country for Old Men of Rambo films. Another question is how this affects the proposed Rambo TV series. »

Last month Sylvester Stallone confirmed that he was starting to get back in shape for his reprisal of action favorite John Rambo. Ever since Stallone's unflinchingly violent return to form in Rambo, there's been a slew of plot lines rumored for the next film. Now, according to a reader over at Coming Soon, the film will be titled Rambo: Last Blood and that Stallone will be back in the director's chair. Still no word on what the "official" story may be. Last Blood is a bit of an »

In 2009 – shortly after the release of Rambo – Sylvester Stallone confirmed his interest in making a fifth movie in the series and earlier this year further news started to leak about the plot details and production dates. And according to ComingSoon we may now know the title – Rambo: Last Blood. Stallone has reportedly c0-written the screenplay and will also direct. The title was apparently sent over to them by a reader called ‘nopr100′, so its legitimacy is still in question with neither Stallone nor the studio giving any confirmation.
Over the years Stallone has seemingly been undecided about a possible fifth instalment, being quoted on numerous occasions that we wouldn’t ever see John Rambo on the big screen again. There were even rumours that a reboot was in the works and that Stallone would be recast citing his age as being a huge stumbling block in getting a fifth movie up and running. »

Stallone will also star in the movie, which is said to bring an end to the long-running action franchise.
The actor was reported to be returning as war veteran John Rambo in June.
He will also be writing the film, which completes the cycle begun with 1982's First Blood.
The most recent outing of the franchise was 2008's Rambo.
John Rambo is the toughest guy in the residential care home. But when a group of Viet Cong veterans move into the room next door the stage is set for a brutal showdown involving oversharpened bingo pencils, Steradent and a converted zimmerframe.
Only joking. However Sylvester Stallone is to give his leathery freedom fighter a final airing in Last Blood. The fifth instalment of the franchise should see the star back on writing/directing duties. What it will involve has yet to be announced, though I’m guessing a steaming jungle, a foreign enemy and a sweaty bandanna will all feature prominently. Stallone has made quite an art out of mining nostalgia, successfully reviving the character in 2008 after a twenty year absence, as well as bringing Rocky back to the screen. The resulting box office paved the way for The Expendables, though disappointing returns for the third movie may have »

The first Rambo film was released in 1982, starring Stallone in the titular role. The last time the actor played the character of John Rambo was in 2008's Rambo, which he also directed. The film earned $113.2 million.
Though there were previous rumors that suggested Stallone was planning to adapt James Byron Huggins' novel Hunter and turn it into a Rambo sequel, that's no longer the case. Stallone still holds the rights to that novel, but he plans to use the book's plot for a different film. Thus, the plot for the fifth Rambo sequel remains under wraps.

Just yesterday, we reported the news (first broken by Film Divider) that shooting was set to start on the fifth and presumably final Rambo movie at the end of next month. Sylvester Stallone is taking on the role of John Rambo once more, and the production is set to last until early next year.
We now learn that the film has a title and director, too.
So then: Rambo 5 will now be called Rambo: Last Blood, and the man calling the shots behind the camera will be Sylvester Stallone. Stallone last directed the first The Expendables movie in 2010, and he also helmed the fourth Rambo film prior to that.
The film may be ready for release by the end of 2015. Don't be surprised if it turns up in 2016 though.

About a month ago, Sylvester Stallone revealed that he's currently working on a fifth "Rambo" movie. He didn't go into any detail, but said that he already started getting in shape and to expect Rambo to be "vicious, but intellectual." Now comes word that the name of "Rambo 5" is "Rambo: Last Blood," which Stallone plans to direct. The title is an obvious reference to the first installment in the franchise, which was called "Rambo: First Blood." There have been rumors that "Rambo 5" will be a sci-fi film, but it was then reported that it will be more like "No Country or Old Men," featuring Rambo facing off against a Mexican drug cartel. »
That’s right, John Rambo has not called it a day. He isn’t too old for this shit. Rambo 5 is alive and kicking. The next entry – and I say next because despite the title, it very well might not be the last – could already have a name. According to a hot tip delivered by Coming Soon reader ‘nopr100′ – the moniker will apparently be Rambo: Last Blood.
The story of the in-development movie is lengthy enough to warrant a short pamphlet or novella. In an effort to keep up-to-date on the most recent gossip, let’s do a run-down. After the 2008 reboot of the series, simply titled Rambo, brought in $113 million at the box office, talk of another bloody romp began. At the time it was rumoured that Stallone was to adapt the novel Hunter by James Byron Huggins, but nothing materialized.
This was followed up by Stallone »

2008's Rambo was a pretty definite send-off to one man war machine John Rambo, so a fifth installment in the franchise seems a bit redundant. But Rambo 5 does seem to on its way, with Splendid Films sending out a press release in June, stating "With Rambo V, Sylvester Stallone returns in his iconic role. This time he goes up against a Mexican cartel. Stallone describes the new Rambo as his No Country for Old Men", as well as dropping that he would be writing and directing as well. Rumours abound that production will be kicking off next month, and Coming Soon are reporting that they have what the title of the latest installment with Rambo: Last Blood (also the name of an online flash game). Bit too on the nose, isn't it? Do we really need a fifth Rambo movie? Okay, I asked myself a very similar question when Rambo was released, »

Sylvester Stallone was the “winner” of the Falling Star title in our 2014 Summer Movie Awards – and not without fair reason, either. Fact of the matter is, Sly’s last four movies – Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan, Grudge Match, and The Expendables 3 – have all performed well below expectations at the U.S. box office. Even the third Expendables and its action star-packed cast have only been able to muster $37 million in ticket sales here in the States so far (and no, as our Rob Keyes pointed out, piracy was not the reason).
Now we’re hearing talk that Rambo 5 will become a reality sooner than later, from no less ...

Back in June we heard whispers that Sylvester Stallone was prepping another installment of the Rambo franchise. And now a new rumor suggests the Rambo 5 title might be Rambo: Last Blood. That can’t be serious, can it? The rumor comes from ComingSoon where a reader named nopr100 send over the new intel. No other […]

According to Comingsoon, the movie will be called Rambo: Last Blood, and Stallone is planning to direct it! The action franchise started with the title Rambo: First Blood so it's only appropriate to end it with Last Blood. There's no official confirmation of this, but it's not that hard to believe.
The 2008 film John Rambo turned out awesome, and I'm actually kind of thrilled that we are getting one last movie. Back in 2009 a synopsis was released for a fifth movie called Rambo: The Savage Hunt that would have basically been an adaptation of a book called Hunter. You can read more about that here. It's been awhile since that »

Never say "die" when it comes to Sylvester Stallone and his signature film franchises. The dreadful Rocky V led to a more definitive conclusion, Rocky Balboa. The Expendables series appears like it could extend indefinitely (despite diminishing returns at the box office). And now Stallone seems ready to reprise his John Rambo character, even though that hero got a proper sendoff in 2008.s Rambo ComingSoon now reports that Sylvester Stallone will direct and star in Rambo: Last Blood. They refer to it as "one last fight," though we all know that.s likely not true. What.s unclear is the possible plot of this final Rambo movie. There were rumors, a while back, that the next Rambo movie could see thi bloodthirsty war veteran going after a Mexican cartel, though why remains the biggest mystery. Or even if that story remains in play. At the time, Stallone was calling »
Right before The Expendables 3 tanked at the box office this past summer, creator and star Sylvester Stallone revealed that he will next return to the world of Vietnam Vet John Rambo in Rambo 5. Now, a new rumor claims that the official title of this final sequel is Rambo: Last Blood.
A reader at Coming Soon reportedly dropped the title in their lap with no further information. The report claims this will officially be Sylvester Stallone's last go at the character, and he plans on directing the movie himself.
About taking on Rambo 5 as his next project, the action icon previously stated:
"I'm getting ready for that. I'm starting to work out. I'm going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual. A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We're going to »
