Sylvester Stallone will soon be 73, but don't tell him. The guy can't stop, won't stop working, restart, or continue his old stuff in interesting ways. Even movies that have never received good reviews and which are not considered his best, get a new look from the star Rocky even when he wraps Rambo 5 .
Case in point: Cobra . It did well at the ticket office and is today a cult strike, even if you don't hear much about it. Stallone must have true love for the movie as he believes it would make a good TV show.
Watching the trailer for the 1986 crime thriller actually supports his claim, which he detailed in a comprehensive discussion before an audience in Cannes, one concerned Rambo V: Last Blood (the reason why he is there of course) and an idea he has for another Rocky .
Asked by an audience to reflect on Cobra, Stallone said "That's what Bruce Springsteen had a gun? It was rock "roll meets drama. It should have been another franchise because that character was so cool. And I blew it. My personal life got in the way. But we are trying to bring it back as a streaming television series." Bring out the zombie squad. I'm a long time away, but the idea is really good, "Stallone said.
First: Wow, to anyone who grew up in the 80s, makes the above-mentioned "conceit" very meaningful. Although Springsteen always seemed a little too funny to imagine he shot evil on the streets of L.A. Second: Stallone says they're trying to bring back Cobra as a streaming show. Expect it to happen then.
The far-reaching landscape of streaming TV leads to many things that would normally have been transmitted to become green lighted, as a streaming service might say no, there is a good chance that others will say yes.
Stallone slowly talked about Last Blood where he plays an aged, retired, PTSD hit John Rambo. Again, from Deadline:
"We're gonna get what he's out in this storm, a horrible storm. He's trying to save people. There's a flash flood. A guy goes uphill, he's volunteering to save people. He is still dealing with survival guilt, [because he couldn’t] rescuing his friends in Vietnam, a result of PTSD, he has a hard time, he has a beautiful ranch, but he lives underground, how he treats his dilemma, there is some underground in Vietnam "He has an adopted family there. His father has moved on. The housekeeper, who is 70, has a grandchild. He is her surrogate father."

"Rambo deals with the dark side of nature that most people live with. Rocky is different, he is more optimistic," said Stallone, "there is optimism and pessimism in these two characters."
The actor has released images on his Insta, which goes well with his description above.
On the same look, Stallone also said there were no immediate plans for a new Creed . Here's why, as reported by Deadline: "I have a good idea for Rocky. He finds this trap illegal in the country and it becomes a whole thing."
If anyone else floated it, it might sound a little silly, but as he showed with Creed Stallone knows what he's doing when it comes to Rocky Balboa these days.  Regarding Rambo V: Last Blood we teach Vietnam's veterinarian's ultimate fate when hitting theaters on September 20, 2019.
