Stallone is Turning Hunter Into Rambo V
Source:Notfabio
September 8, 2009


Last Monday, it was announced that Nu Image/Millennium Films had given the green light to a fifth installment in the "Rambo" franchise. The trades said that the "storyline for the fifth film revolves around Rambo fighting his way through human traffickers and drug lords to rescue a young girl abducted near the U.S.-Mexico border."

According to Sylvester Stallone in several communications with Ain't It Cool News, that storyline is way off. Instead, Sly gave the site a rundown of what to expect instead. Several days later, the site followed up with an official synopsis for the film that is being passed around, and that's where it gets interesting.

You see, Stallone has owned the film rights to the novel "Hunter" by James Byron Huggins for about 10 years, and it looks like he's adapting that book as the next "Rambo" film. Here's the synopsis for the newly-titled Rambo 5: The Savage Hunt:

John Rambo could track anyone - or anything - on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Artic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation.

It's a job that Rambo and his 22-year-old hunting partner, Beau Brady, can't turn down, but they and a team of highly-skilled special forces kill team discover that the prey is a terror beyond their wildest imagination - a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man's cunning, a predator's savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages. And even if Rambo and Beau survive its unrelenting hunger for human blood, they'll still have to contront the grim reality that it may have grown immortal.

And here is the official description of James Byron Huggins' "Hunter":

One of Hollywood's hottest action-film writers, James Byron Huggins is a master at keeping the action rolling and the pages turning. Here, the author of Cain ("may be the thriller of the year" -- BookPage), unleashes a lightning-quick tale that pits a man born out of his time against the future's deadliest creation.

Nathaniel Hunter could track anyone -- or anything -- on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation.

It's a job that Hunter can't turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man's cunning, a predator's savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages. And even if Hunter survives its unrelenting hunger for human blood, he'll still have to confront the grim reality that it may have grown immortal.

Are Stallone's rights to the novel expiring soon to where he has to make a film soon? We may never know, but here is a poster that Stallone told AICN is debuting at the Toronto Film Festival.

My fave Korean movie.  I remember I first saw it as a monthly free movie sa TV subscription ng apartment that was rented for us.  Korean dialogue with Japanese subtitles (WTF?!).  Thanks to Wikipedia I understood the whole story.

Yeah go see the trilogy.  Park Chan-wook (vengence trilogy) has a new film called "thirst" - haven't seen it though, but supposedly about vampiras.

Damn I missed out on this year's eigai sai...

Found on YT "swing girls." It's rather jdorama formulaic and manufactured, esp. compared to linda linda. It's got funny or cute moments every five minutes or so, it's just a light story with some eye candy. Love the rural background though.

Watched 'blood' - kick ass third half.   Its not perfect, flawed for the most part, but still a bang entertaining.


Swing girls - one of my all time favorites.

Just watched GI JOE.  Its flashy & shiny. 

I realized at the scene where the black hummer released its retractable array of missiles from the side doors & retractable cannon of sorts on the roof, that you have to think you're watching the old series to enjoy the film, that I did, and it was darn entertaining. 

Think about it, they showed scenes inside the hummer & if you looked closely you'd ask yourself, where was the compartment that held the missiles & cannon?, so this is not the way to watch the movie, just remember the feel of the old series and enjoy. :)


Wayans dude shoots like a girl
Sienna Miller - Black is not her color, I still love her though :)
Rachel Nichols - lot of gorgeous scenes
Dennis Q - looks gay w/ chestnut/red color hair
White ninja - had lots of opportunities to kill the lead joe characters, but he just strike a pose.
