LOS ANGELES: Sylvester Stallone is set to make a fifth ‘Rambo’ movie.

The 71-year-old actor – who first played the Vietnam veteran in 1982 – is said to be working on a script for the new movie, while his ‘Expendables’ collaborator Avi Lerner is on board to produce.

According to Screen International, the movie – which is expected to start shooting in September – will see Rambo’s path cross with a Mexican cartel.

The former soldier has been working at a ranch, but when the daughter of one of his friends is kidnapped, he crosses the US/Mexico border and finds himself up against one of the country’s most violent organisations.

Stallone was initially expected to direct the movie as well as star, but that’s not now believed to be the case.

John Rambo was the lead character in the 1972 novel ‘First Blood’, written by David Morrell. The book was adapted into a film of the same name in 1982.

The franchise then spawned sequels ‘Rambo: First Blood Part II’ in 1985 and ‘Rambo III’ in 1988.
