A widely reported story that the new Rambo film would feature Sylvester Stallone taking on Daesh has been debunked by the actor's rep.
The original story, published on hoaxer's site The National Report, quoted the Rambo star at San Diego's Comic-Con announcing “We have teams scouting Iraq and parts of Syria where [Daesh] have their greatest strongholds. We’re working with the locals there to help deliver the most intense and realistic Rambo movie experience ever.”
The news quickly spread across social media and major newspapers around the world which prompted Stallone's representative to issue a denial to Rolling Stone: “Sylvester Stallone did not attend Comic-Con 2015, and consequently there was no official remark from him regarding Rambo made there at the event. This is not an accurate report.”
The Rambo series is based on the novel First Blood by David Morrell and stars Sylvester Stallone as a Vietnam veteran and US Special Forces soldier. First Blood (1982), Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), Rambo III (1988), and Rambo (2008) netted a worldwide total of $727,873,237.
While Stallone hinted at the possibility of Rambo 5 on Twitter last year, he is focusing on Creed, the seventh film of the Rocky franchise slated for release in November of this year.
