Mickey Rourke, Rambo villain?

Mickey Rourke, Rambo villain?
Clint

According to the ever-so-reliable-British-Press (in this case The Sun) Mickey Rourke is set to play the villain in the new “Rambo” movie.

Rourke and Stallone were spotted lunching recently and naturally, the paper knows what was being discussed over gin and carrot sticks. How do they know? Well, they sent in a fly, strapped with a mini micro-recorder, to tape their conversation. That’s the only way they could know, right? Unless the waiter overheard something and took a $200 pay-off from The Sun to tell all. But shit, let’s just go with it..

Anyway, according to the publication Sylvester Stallone has asked the Oscar Nominee to join him on not only “The Expendables” (that we know is true; most of the cast start work next week on the picture) but “Rambo 5”. Now is it even certain that another Rambo is going to happen? Is it any more than a couple of pages of notes on Sly’s desk somewhere?

Look, there could be some truth to the rumour – after all, Sly’s said in the past that he wants this new “Rambo” sequel to be set on home soil, the United States and it’d make sense that the big guy would go head-to-head with a fellow American there. But still, considering the source I’d take it with a grain of salt. It’s likely Rourke and Sly were merely sharing some carbs before heading off overseas together next week to make “Expendables”.
