Sylvester Stallone, widely known for his role as the green beret Rambo, has disappointed fans after his representative debunked reports that the 69-year old actor was reprising his role one more time to take on the Islamic state.
On Monday rumours emerged of Stallone at Comic-Con 2015 announcing a fifth film in the series, Rambo: Last Blood, which would revolve around the conflict in Middle East, with the actor-director's team already scouting for the best, and safest, locations in Syria for filming.
However, the Rolling Stone said that Stallone's representative had denied these reports. "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 [ISIS plot] is not an accurate report."
While the representative denied reports of Stallone not being present at the San Diego event, apparently being in Italy at the time, the actor-director had confirmed in December that Rambo may be getting another outing on the silver screen.
