Sly bleeds some more answers in anticipation of RAMBO - Day 2

Hey folks, Harry here... Due to Stallone's Publicity schedule, he'll be picking up Day 3 on Monday... so enjoy Day 2 - there's some awesome stuff here.

1) As much as I love the whole Rocky series, the first and last ones fit so well together. Would you consider doing a "Godfather Saga" like cut of Rocky incorporating much of the first and last, and bits from the others? Misterpat Portland, OR

1.) I would welcome the opportunity to join the first Rocky and the last Rocky together because I think it would make an extraordinary visual to see young Rocky with his life just starting out and when we last see him he’s in love with Adrian and the world is all green lights and sunshine. As the music fades, we dissolve into the present day where Rocky is visiting Adrian’s grave. It would just show how drastic, cruel, and unpredictable life can be. The other ROCKYs, had wonderful moments but rest assure the making of Rocky Balboa was unbelievably cathartic for me. I’ve never made a more personal film and hopefully I never have to go through that again, but knowing the peaks and valleys that all of us have to journey up and down to get through life I’m sure someday in the future I’ll be making another “personal journey” film.

Hello there, my name is Matt and I'm from Iowa. I'm sooo giddy that a new Rambo film will be coming out. It will be the first one that I ever got to see on the big screen (much like Rocky Balboa was the first Rocky film I was able to see at the theater). I wish you the best of luck with the film Mr. Stallone. Question 2: How was it working on the music for Rambo with composer Brian Tyler? Is there a lot of that certain "Jerry Goldsmith" magic/themes that made the scores for the other Rambo films classic? Thank you for your time Mr. Stallone. You and your films have been a huge inspiration to me when I was growing up. Good luck with Rambo, it looks wonderful.

2.) Yes, working with Brian was such a pleasure because he had crossed paths with Jerry early on in his career, so he was very familiar with the master composer’s style. The difficulty was Goldsmith scores specific beats and movements of the film that wouldn’t apply to the type of film we had just completed. Brian’s challenge was to embrace the Goldsmith score but take it into a much more primal, combative, moody area that would elevate the Burmese atrocities and terror. He did a fantastic job. At first I was just going to score the film with dueling banjos, a flute and a piccolo, but I thought some of the viewers might object.

Long time fan here, especially of the Rambo franchise. Question 3: I am so glad that you have made another Rambo film. I had been waiting for a fourth one ever since I saw part 3 as a kid. My question is, I heard you say something in a interview where you said you may continue the Rambo franchise. If this is true, when can we expect a new installment, and what would the storyline be about? Thanks for the great films, and keep up the good work! Saynt Jaymz Oklahoma City, Oklahoma United States

3.) I truly can’t tell you yet because I think it would be bad luck, but I think a challenge would be to take the character which has been perceived mostly in a realistic vein and add another element of the surreal that would actually take the audience into a slightly different genre. It’s not like I’m going to turn it into a full on Broadway musical starring the Muppets, but it is ambitious.

Questions for the living legend... 4) Are you having any problems with the studio about editing out some violence in 'Rambo' to achieve a lower rating or can you release the balls-out movie you promised with that (now legendary) trailer? You are simply the best and most entertaining movie star of all time. Thanks. Graham From Watford, England

4.) This film has its balls intact. The original premise was met with objections by certain powerful personalities in the studio because of the inherent violence. I told them to water this down to make a sugar free war movie, something that is diluted would be a true disservice to the millions of slaughtered Burmese. Then it was suggested that the tone of the film should be more about corruption within the system. For example, the ubiquitous corrupt CIA official or a film that deals with a “caper”, such as Rambo goes to Burma and finds Americans selling plutonium rods to the enemy or some other viral horse crap. I truly hate “caper” movies. I think if I ever developed a cancer, it’ll be a caper tumor lodged at the back of my brain. So, I said to the studio, “What’s wrong with doing a film about man’s inhumanity to man and sometimes God’s indifference to his loyal followers?” To their credit, they said, “Go for it.”

5. Mr. Stallone, could you please settle the old urban legend about your "ducking the draft" during the Vietnam War? I know that you sued The Spectator in 1991 for printing this and then won the suit, but it still seems to pop up from time to time. Dead Cowboy from New Orleans, Louisiana

5.) I’m glad you brought that up. I’ve never ducked anything in my life except a few punches thrown by angry individuals, usually my school teachers. At the University of Miami, my draft number came up in 1969. So, myself, along with thirty other young men appeared before the draft board and we went though all the rigors of mandatory testing. Some of the guys there were ingenious. I remember the fellow standing to my right had packed a heavy dose of peanut butter in his ass crack before entering so when he was asked to bend over for a check you can imagine that visual. Anyway, I was certainly not in the mood to go to Vietnam, but there was little else I could do. After the testing, I recorded a rating of, don’t hold me to this, but I think it was an H1 or H4. Anyway, I was only to be inducted in the case of a national emergency. Truthfully, that’s how it went down. PS – They must’ve seen something in the psychological profile that made them question my viability.

6. Who could take who in a smackdown between Jackie Stallone and Estelle Getty? All the best!! Loved Rocky Balboa so bring on Rambo 4! Boz Bolton, England

6.) My mother is a physical specimen to behold. She still, to this day, hangs from a low level trapeze, tap dances, and can do a full back bend. Not only would she turn Estelle Getty into geriatric tartar she might even break my neck for good measure.

7. I know Reagan always insisted that Rambo was a republican, how do you think the character sits politically and do you get offended at the character being politicized? Kane Banner Adelaide, Australia.

7.) Yes, I do get offended at the character being politicized. Rambo questions the leadership of the country to the point where he doesn’t even live in it. I liked Ronald Reagan. He was a fine man and I’ll never forget the time we sat in the lower level of the White House on folding chairs watching a print of “Escape to Victory”, while sharing a bowl of popcorn that was plopped between us. No, Rambo is completely a-political but once President Reagan declared Rambo a republican, the media decided to make me into a right wing dart board.

Dear Mr. Stallone, Thank you so much for bringing Rambo back. I can't even describe how exciting it is to see your name on posters in my local movie theater lobby once more. I have a quick question: 8. When First Blood was released, what sort of response did you receive from veterans of the Vietnam war? The first film definitely gives him the voice of the many disaffected soldiers, but it also portrays him as a crazy person who attacks police and U.S. soldiers (in effect attacking America itself for wronging him) so I could see some people being offended. Thanks for your time, and for the years of sweet, sweet on-screen carnage. Jeff Miller Seattle, WA

8.) Two weeks ago I was in Las Vegas and a burley ex Veteran came up to me still wearing his Veterans cap and held my hand for what seemed like ten minutes. As he spoke, tears ran down his broad face, and he continued to thank me for “First Blood” for the final speech and trying to convey what they went through.

9HI sly Was just listening to your great commentary for Rocky Balboa somewhere in the commentary you allude to the their maybe a directors cut of Rocky Balboa just wondering if there is any chance of that happening?. Also are there any plans to release the other 5 Rocky films in special editions I would love to hear your thoughts on all the 5 previous films in the series?. Would love to hear your thoughts on the films now that so much time has passed since they were made and you could properly dissect them. Thanks for reading. Good luck with Rambo Look forward to it. Mark Ocean Grove Australia

9.) Most likely the studio is waiting until their old inventory is depleted but they’re definitely coming out with a “Rocky” six pack. As for a director’s cut, I could do it, but I didn’t think it’d be that much different from what you saw. There is an exception. There was one scene when Rocky went back to the gym and was training poorly because all the conflict with his son, but other than the inclusion of that scene I don’t believe I would change much from what you saw. It took a long time to blend the narrative and drama and try to keep the natural slow Rocky pace interesting so the audience wouldn’t emotionally abandon the film. So in hindsight, I think what you see is the best of what we have.

10. One of my favorite parts in First Blood is when Trautman explains that Rambo is trained to eat things that would make a billygoat puke. Could you tell us how this unique skill has come in handy for Rambo and whether or not he uses it in the new movie? your friend, Vern

10.) Trautman is basically saying that we’ve taken this normal human being and reduced him to an animal that will now rely upon savage instinct to survive. It’s as though his morality and sense of self has been beaten out of him through all the intense training so he has no other purpose but to be a fighting machine willing to die for a worthy cause, or one that would even be unworthy. In the new film, Rambo reacts purely on a subconscious level like an animal with acute survival instincts. Having spent the last twenty years in a primitive, unforgiving location he’s more attuned to his animal cunning and physical self than he’s ever been before which also presents a dilemma because he’s also removed further and further from society so that his ability to be in touch with human emotions is nearly at a fragile end.

    The problem I have with Rambo

    by CaptainGilgore

    First of all, Stallone seems like an awesome guy. And I have nothing against him. But whenever I see these Rambo promos, I see a man who supposedly has been stuck in the jungle for all these years, is 60 years old, and yet his face looks like it's been through seventeen of Beverly Hills' best plastic surgeons. It doesn't have the wear and tear that I would expect a 60 year old Rambo to have. I don't have anything against plastic surgery. But when it prevents the realism inherent in inhabiting a character, it's a huge detriment.

  • Jan. 15, 2008, 9:52 p.m. CST

    Re: Why the same questions???

    by brocknroll

    I agree with gunnafan. The first day of questions were great, but the 2nd day was a real let down. I'm getting tired of the "Stop or My Mom Will Shoot" jokes myself. It's time to stop making fun of Sly's past and focus on his future! Harry, a request that I would like to know his thoughts about that "Resident Evil: Extinction" movie, he was at the premiere of that film, you should send him that question that I sent you!

    Serious answers

    by enderandrew

    I think the first round, when he was talking about Rocky he gave more serious answers, which is not to say he didn't poke fun at himself. It is nice to see a celebrity with a sense of himself, and his role in the world. All too often you hear about these crazy, disillusioned celebrities that don't exist in the real world. (Kevin Smith's Prince story is priceless) I really enjoy this direct feedback, but I'd like to see some more serious answers.

  • Jan. 15, 2008, 9:57 p.m. CST

    Clear the Air

    by enderandrew

    I should have asked it last time, but since Sly isn't ducking anything, I might as well ask it and wonder if he answers. In 2001, I remember reading that Margie Carr filed suit against Stallone for sexual assault. What happened with that, and what was your side of that story?

    Rambo

    by enderandrew

    I'm looking forward to the new movie, but does it bug anyone else that there was a Rambo III without a Rambo part 1 or 2? Shouldn't have Rambo III been First Blood III? That always bugged me.

    There's a reason why...

    by kuldan

    ...Stallone inspired me to go through and graduate from film school. He's very articulate and intelligent, and has a great sense of humor while staying down to Earth. Most actors wouldn't do this kind of talk back, but the guy has to be given a wheel barrel full of respect for staying true to his fans, and even more so to himself. I absolutely love this guy and everything he has done for me and many others as well.

    I grew up in Italy and First Blood was super popular...

    Rambo meets Sci-Fi...

    by moto

    That's my prediction. Think of the genres. It won't be a comedy. It won't be a western. It won't be a horror flick. I predict that it will be a sci-fi flick. I could even see the angle of them either cloning Rambo, time travel, or something like that. But that might be a little too Demolition Man-like. For me though, I'm hoping it's NOT that.

    by moto

    I want a Rambo V to be a journey back to civilization for him. He's brought back to the states to train a team for a mission or something... and is forced to lead them into battle. Dramatic impact with him being back in civilization. Heck, maybe he even gets a buzz cut! Bring it full circle and have him believe in the U.S. again, or at least fighting for them. He starts to remember the brotherhood of a platoon. But then all hell breaks loose and by the end of it, his new "brothers" are dead, thanks again to the fucked up military. He goes on a rampage to avenge them. Bring it full circle.

    More Stars Should Follow Sly's Lead

    by Stacy Without An E

    This from of fan interview is fascinating and I've been impressed by the quality of the questions. But I'm wondering why we can't have more features like this with artists from other facet of the television and motion picture industries.

    by cyclo

    You don't create, write, and direct amazingly brilliant movies if you're not super smart. Sly imagined then wrote Rocky (1976) from scratch. Went on to win the 1976 Academy Award for 'Best Picture of the Year.' That alone makes him a certified genius and an incredible mind to behold.

Seriously, in Under Siege 2 he wears a suit for the whole thing - Sly would have been in his undies by the time that train crashed (spoiler).<p>Thoughts from our foremost Seagalogist...?

    Sly is ducking the Hollywood Liberals.

    by darthbinks1220

    I am disappointed with the subject matter of Rambo. Today's main global threat is Islamic Fascism. Mr. Stallone side-stepped the issue not to piss off liberal Hollywood, the corrupt media,.....or the people @ AICN. Sad, because John Rambo symbolizes the United States of America. He's our greatest hero. Yep, sorry Supes, only humans apply. Sylvester Stallone saying Rambo would have to dump Osama bin Laden in the Oval Office is hogwash. As long as his mission is against al Qaeda, most Americans would line up for a very topical new Rambo entry. Now that is a movie w/ it's balls intact. The sixty year Burmese conflict is not a threat to us, let alone the whole world. Kinda leaves us flat. Ya know what I mean?

    Why "should" he focus...

    by kuldan

    ...on current major political events with his movies? Not ALL movies have to reflect exactly what's big in this year's news. Some things transcend time, and I think Stallone has chosen wisely to use an eye-opening conflict widely ignored as the setting for his new sequel. Tell me how this isn't being somewhat politically viewed, if you are looking at this film from a political standpoint? Open your eyes to the world outside of your OWN little world. Stallone did - so should you. For a short guy, Stallone's got a humongous set of cajones.

    by Vern

    I was hoping Rambo would eat his way out of a cage or something cool like that. Or the Burmese soldiers are force feeding him disgusting things to torture him but he just eats it without complaint. After hours of failure one of the guys tosses whatever the torture food is on the ground in frustration and there's a shot of a billygoat trying to eat it and then puking it up. That would be a little reference that only the true fans like us would get.

    You need more exclamation points to truly sound like ABking. And of course to truly nail it you need to type whilst unashamedly thinking of Greco-Roman wrestling with a freshly oily Steve Reeves.

You need to constantly mention the potential Box Office receipts and future sequel plans for the sweaty, muscley, musky, waxed, ripped, hot, throbbing, heaving, hard ... see I tried it and got carried away, note perfect ABking.

    RAMBO vs. PREDATOR!

    by brokentusk

    Totally agree, that would be fucking badass! I wonder what Sly meant by taking the RAMBO franchise into a different genre. I'd love for Rambo to take on something supernatural next, that'd just be so bizarre. I also agree with others who are saying that the next logical step is to bring Rambo back to America, but personally I'd rather see him take on a dinosaur or something.

I know let Rambo enter a reality show like that shitty Condemned flick where he fights Jaguar Paw, Matrix, The Predator, Jason, Neo, Atticus Finch, Max Cady, Chuck Norris, Riggs and Murtaugh, Rocky, and also Cujo.

    by Bobo_Vision

    Maybe Stallone's next movie can be about an obsessed fan who kidnaps him and forces him to make a movie where Rambo fights creatures from outerspace, and keeps Stallone tied up in a chair while he puts peanut butter into his nooks and crannies, and caresses his ABs.

    SLY'S IDEA for NEXT R A M B O are...........

    by ABking

    1) If Rambo was created by the Government to be a perfect Solider there have to be other guys like him. What if a modern version of Rambo, maybe a veteran of the Iraq war, goes bad? After he returns from the war he turns his knowledge of Killing against innocent people. Becoming a cold blooded Killer. But a Killer who is an expert in combat and Guerrilla Warfare. So what do the Police do? They ask for Rambo's help. 2) Rambo back on U.S. soil is asked by the fictional president to do a top secret mission for him...

    But it's been established that neither Trautman, nor the military system, "made" Rambo what he is. They just "chipped away the rough edges," as Trautman stated in Part III. So Fort Bragg may have turned out some other great fighting men in Rambo's time, but the nature of what he is was already there prior to enlisting / being drafted. And by the way good morning everyone, I hope you're all enjoying your fine bowl of Inverted Nipples cereal for breakfast. So yummy, so nutritious! So inverted, it's delicious! Nip-PUHLLs!!

Napalm wouldn't even singe Rambo's pubes, which are coarser than the brines of a wire brush.

The only vegetables he eats are those in the stomachs of the small furry animals in his meat-salad. The inside of Rambo's greeting cards for Christmas 2007 read, "Seasons Greetings...find 'em, or I'll find you." Rambo once prevented a zoo catastrophe by punching a charging rhino in the face, chewing through a leather harness, and flipping over a maintenance truck with his bare hands. On the same day, he saved the life of a small girl with a bad heart by tearing a donor heart out of a baboon and stuffing it down the kid's throat. The baboon never knew what hit it, and was alive just long enough to see the little girl smile again. Then Rambo ate it.

    Rambo once sank an enemy PT boat

    by Abominable Snowcone

    by swimming underneath it and punching a hole in it. He held down all the bad guys who fell out by their legs and either let them drown, or he choked them with his free hand. Rambo once helped a bunch of nuns at a convent by hunting the mechanic who did shoddy repairs on their church bus and ripping his throat out. He then dismantled a Hobart mixer and a John Deere tractor with his teeth to find the needed replacement parts. Rambo once thwarted a gas station robbery by felling the seven would-be thieves by hurling cans of Slim-Fast and a bottle of Snapple. He drowned one of them with the Slurpee machine. Rambo similarly ruined the plans of a would-be downtown bank robber. "I'm here for a withdrawal," he told the alarmed teller, while ripping the gunman's heart out of his chest and stomping it on the floor. Rambo onced saved the life of an elderly man injured in a car accident by using car battery jumpers as a defibrillator. But not without first lifting the car off the guy and dropping it off a bridge onto a cruise ship that had been hijacked by pirates. For all these deeds, Rambo would have collected additional medals of honor and valor, and the Keys to several Cities, but all he wanted was somethin' ta eat.

John Rambo would have dispatched the bad guys on the Amish farm in "Witness" much more quickly than did John Book, and there would have been no ambiguity about whether he made love to Rachel, because she'd be in a wheelchair.

    ..I remember watching The Hunted and thinking it was riffing from First Blood. Still enjoyed The Hunted, though. BTW like your idea for the 5th Rambo with him returning to the US.....but hows about having him track down more than one disgruntled vet? Lets have a bunch of them holding hostages on alcatraz, threatning to launch nukes if their demands are not met. Trautmans nephew Stanley Goodspeed is called in to recruit Rambo to infiltrate the island and take out the bad guys. Could call it RAMBO 2: RETURN TO THE ROCK. Seriously though - surprised no one has picked up on the Beowulf comment I made earlier - it's gonna happen in the next 5 - 10 years. And not just to Rambo. Hows about an Aliens prequal focusing on the infestation of LV-426? Another Back to The Future with a young Marty? More Indy adventures with 'Harrison'? The technology's gonna be in a position to do this one day. Would blow the spectrum wide open.

    Thanks for that music link. At just over 3MBs, though, that's probably just a free songclip. Can't be the whole album. Sounds good though, although I think somewhere in the credits or on the cover it should mention "based on themes by Jerry Goldsmith," because Bryan Tyler didn't write that shit, Goldsmith did and everybody knows it. "Rambo Theme" borrows wholesale from Goldsmith's First Blood music.

Bruce got lost!! He got back a full 10 mins after Dave & Sly...his lame excuse is posted over at TMZ.com. <P> But, C'mon, Letterman! He asked more questions about ROCKY than RAMBO!! Although he did give Sly a great idea...what if Rocky & Rambo teamed up for a "buddy" action pic? Stallone already had a name picked out: "R & R". The Letterman appearance is probably over at YouTube...until the Viacom police rip it down.

    There should be two more Rambo movies. A prequel of how Rambo came to be who he is. And one more where Rambo is like the Trauntman character. Where Rambo has to come in and help someone who has gone ballistic like in First Blood. It would then complete the circle of Rambo.

    by spud mcspud

    They're obviously not from MY ex-church then. They meant well, but weren't packed for war.<P> As for Rambo sequel possibilities:<P> RAMBO VS CTHULHU<P> RAMBO VS CHUCK NORRIS<P> RAMBO VS PREDATOR - only this time, Dutch is on a solo mission in some jungle somewhere. Initially he and Rambo have a bare-knuckle scrap takedown, interrupted rudely by a bunch of Predators, who proceed to get the living shit kicked out of them. Could be the Arnie-Sly tag team epic we've been fuckin' waiting for!!!<P> RAMBO VS WRITER'S STRIKE - The writers win that one, obviously.<P> RAMBO VS TERMINATOR - Sly vs Arnie. Again!!!<P> RAMBO VS NICO - No contest. Sly wins.<P> RAMBO VS TIMECOP - Also too easy. I think Rambo might have his hands full with Chance Boudreaux, though, which leads us to...<P> RAMBO VS HARD TARGET<P> RAMBO VS DARK ANGEL (WE COME IN PEACE) - Kicks Dolph's ass. again!!<P> RAMBO VS RUSSELL T DAVIES - Just 'cos.<P> RAMBO VS DUBYA - I think I'd like to see that most of all.<P> But it really will probably be...<P> RAMBO VS KERMIT!<P> Try the veal.
