I Won't Be Back

I Won't Be Back

Frequent doubts about the sanity of Hollywood may be allayed somewhat by this: there will be no Rambo 5. Stallone says:

“I think Rambo’s pretty well done. I don’t think there’ll be any more. I’m about 99% sure.”

 

I'm very happy with the last Burmese episode, because I didn’t pull any punches on it. I wanted it to be what civil war really is – rough. You can't candy coat it, and where do you go from there?

Disneyworld? I don’t know - Rambo IV was pretty good, as Rambosity goes; better than 2 or 3. For that matter “Rocky,” the last in the series, was better-than-average Stallone fare, and both seemed a fitting goodbye to the character, especially since Rocky died trying to save the Enterprise from the velociraptors, or something like that. Details don't matter with sequels sometimes.

 

More non-sequel news: Ben Stiller, like the “Anchorman” producer, drops some stunning news on his Twitter feed:

Ron Burgundy and Derek Zoolander looking to appear in sequels. Both men destitute, without means or intellect to fund their own comebacks.

So no Zoolander sequel. Well, at least we have "The Hobbit "to look forward to, right? Uh oh: Ian McKellen says it’s not off the ground yet. As far as he knows, anyway:

“I’ve read the script, or as much as had been written, they sent it to me, which was very accomplished and good, I thought, and a wonderful part, Gandalf. But I don’t have a contract and I don’t have a start date, so there we are. We’re in a bit of limbo at the moment.”

Is there no hope? Well, a “G.I Joe” sequel is possible, but not definite.

 

No matter what you think, that might be good news.
