Sylvester Stallone has revealed he's busy preparing himself to play the role of John Rambo in 'Rambo 5'

Sylvester Stallone is preparing to appear in 'Rambo 5'.

Stallone, 68, recently starred in the third instalment of the 'Expendables' franchise - in which he appeared alongside the likes of Harrison Ford and Jason Statham - and he's already working towards starring in 'Rambo 5'.

He said: "I'm getting ready for 'Rambo 5'. I'm starting to work out. I'm going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual.

"A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We're going to try to cover all the boundaries."

The fifth 'Rambo' film will see the central character - played by Stallone - face off against a Mexican cartel, with the action hero having previously described the much-hyped flick as his version of 'No Country for Old Men', the neo-Western thriller starring Javier Bardem and Tommy Lee Jones.

There is also the expectation that Stallone will prise the role of boxing champion Rocky Balboa in a new movie called 'Creed', which will see the iconic character mentor the grandson of his rival-turned-friend Apollo Creed.

The lead role in the flick is to be played by Michael B. Jordan, who is best known for playing the role of Wallace in 'The Wire'.

Grunberg delivers a deluge of brutal death and torture scenes, the film’s depiction of Mexicans is frankly Trumpian, and Rambo himself unwittingly comes across as…
