So everyone's favorite roid advocate, Slyvestor Stallone is adapting Hunter by James Byron Huggins into the next installment of the Rambo franchise....aka Rambo 5:The Savage Hunt. Here is the official synopsis provided by Aint it Cool News.
"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." I have to admit that I actually kind of liked the last Rambo movie...its sort of a guilty pleasure...but my "ultra sensitive instincts" tell me that Rambo 5 will be awful.
