Stallone Says RAMBO 5 Is No Longer Rambo -vs- That Horrible Monster Guy!!

Merrick here...
A few months back we learned that the next RAMBO movie would throw John Rambo & a team of mercenaries/Black Ops dudes into conflict with a genetically engineered creature of unspeakable awfulness (details HERE). Seems this is no longer the case. Over at StaloneZone, Craig received a message from Sly about the film's new direction.
From Sly Hi Craig, This is from Sly to your followers: To all the loyal SZoners out there, I’m letting you know that Rambo has changed course and the story about hunting the man/beast will be done using another character in the lead. RAMBO himself will be heading over the border to a violent city where many young women have vanished There will be blood. Best, Sly Stallone
...says StalloneZone HERE. I loved the fourth RAMBO film and am all for nearly anything Sly does with Part 5. This said, I'm a bit disappointed by this news because I thought the notion of RAMBO -vs- an existential beast ("an amalgamation of fury, intelligence, and pure, unadulterated rage"...i.e. FORBIDDEN PLANET's Id creature...per Sly) was pretty ingenious. Ah well, hopefully this means well get two ultra-violent, thematically motivated Stallone extravaganzas instead of one. That wouldn't be bad at all...
