According to the media reports, the Rambo franchise is coming back with its fifth installment and will have Sylvester Stallone reprising the role of John Rambo.
The reports suggest that in the fifth installment, Stallone will be seen living on a ranch in Arizona, deeply troubled and wrestling with PTSD as he picks up casual work wherever he can.
When a longtime family friend and estate manager Maria informs the former soldier that her granddaughter has gone missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, he sets off with her to find the youngster.
