Is A Genre-Shifting RAMBO 5 Closer To Reality??

Merrick here...
Starpulse has an article citing a Swedish paper called Metro. In the article, Stallone evidently discusses the notion of another RAMBO film. Up to this point, we'd received mixed signals about this project actually happening. In essence, Weinstein wanted another RAMBO film - but Stallone seemed to be waffling. This is a reasonably solid indicator that development machinery may actually be churning.
Stallone tells Swedish newspaper Metro, "I would like to take Rambo to another genre, experiment a little with the character. It would definitely not be another war movie. I can't go any further with that than what I've already done. What it's going to be like, I'm not going to reveal at this point. But I'm already halfway though writing the manuscript."
...says THIS ARTICLE at starpulse. I had a helluva time with the most recent film - loved its ultra-violence, loved its tone, loved how the character was used. And, I think John Rambo - as a character and as a symbol - can certainly be more versatile than he has been so far. I'm really curious as to what Sly has in mind in terms of shifting RAMBO into a different genre. Images of "Save the Farm RAMBO", "Buddy Cop RAMBO", "Politico RAMBO" and "RAMBO: AIRPORT 2010" jump to mind...but I'm willing to give Stallone far more credit than that. The Metro website is linked above but...I don't read the language. If any readers can locate & further interpret the Stallone piece, feel free to post a summary in the Talkback below. Thanks to Gouda for the heads-up about this.
