Bollywood’s Rambo Remake Updates (Will Stallone Appear?)

A Bollywood remake of Rambo has been in development for years, but is the movie still happening and will Sylvester Stallone appear? Despite his success with the Rocky movies, Stallone had trouble landing a hit outside of that series. That finally arrived in the form of 1982’s First Blood, which cast him as John Rambo, a troubled Vietnam vet who launches a war on a small town. First Blood established Stallone’s action hero persona, and he followed the movie with more bombastic sequels that turned Rambo into a poster child for ’80s action cinema.

Stallone later felt that Rambo 2 – which was almost a buddy movie with John Travolta – and Rambo III glorified war, so he wanted to make a darker movie with 2008’s Rambo. In addition to featuring the highest body count of the series, it was also unrelenting violent. The same can be said of 2019’s Rambo: Last Blood, which was billed as the final entry and saw Rambo take on a vicious cartel. While the star has pitched a story for Rambo 6, it appears Last Blood will be Stallone’s last time playing the role.

That doesn’t mean Rambo’s time on the big screen is over, however. An Indian remake of First Blood has been in development for some time, though it has yet to reach screens. Is this Rambo remake still happening and will Stallone make any kind of appearance?

Bollywood’s Rambo Remake Was Confirmed In 2017

Reports of a Bollywood remake of the Rambo movie series had been circling for a few years, prior to THR confirming the project was moving ahead in 2017. The movie cast Baaghi star Tiger Shroff as the title character, while Siddharth Anand was confirmed as director. The story would have reimagined Rambo as a member of the Indian Armed Forces who returns from war only to encounter another in his homeland. However, Shroff became busy on another project which caused filming on Rambo to be pushed back.

Sylvester Stallone’s Involvement With The Bollywood Rambo

Shortly after the Indian reboot of Rambo has been confirmed, Stallone posted on social media (via BBC) that he wished those involved “good luck.” He later reached out to Shroff personally too. While he’s given the project his blessing, he later made it clear that he wouldn’t be actually involved with the Rambo reboot “under any circumstances.” This makes a Rambo remake cameo for Stallone as a new character very unlikely, though since he made those comments in 2017, maybe he’d feel differently if approached now.

The Status Of The Bollywood Rambo Remake Is Unknown

In a later interview with Mumbai Mirror (via India Today) Rambo director Anand announced a planned October 2020 release date for the remake. He also spoke further on the movie’s development, stating “India doesn’t have that history (the Vietnam War), so obviously, there had to be a major adaptation in the sense of character, story and setting. That’s why the project has taken two years.”

Delays hit the movie again, and Anand stepped out as director in 2020 with Rohit Dhawan replacing him. Pinkvilla reported in late 2021 that after Shroff completes work on projects like Heropanti 2 and Ganapath, he was expected to move straight on to the Rambo remake (not to be confused with Tarantino’s proposed remake), which has been a passion project for the star. However, there’s still no confirmation the film is actually happening, and given the multiple delays it’s faced, it could get pushed back once again if Shroff’s schedule doesn’t allow it.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
