Sylvester Stallone has managed to get clear that he will not have ‘any involvement in Tiger Shroff’s Rambo, under any circumstances’.
After wishing Tiger Shroff well for his organized remake of 1982’s Rambo, Sylvester Stallone has made it clear that he’d not, ‘under any circumstances’, be engaged with the job.
Handling internet rumours about his appearance in the Hindi remake, to be aimed by Bang Bang’s Siddharth Anand, Stallone’s representatives advised Deadline that “any participation in Tiger Shroff’s Rambo is not occurring, under any circumstances”. Stallone has nothing against the project — he publicly wished the team well on Instagram when it was declared — but he needs them to undertake it ‘on their own’.
Stallone is currently concentrating on the sequel to his 2015 film Creed, where he reprised his iconic role as boxer Rocky Balboa, and went on to rating an Oscar nomination.
Talking with Deadline at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Tiger said that they’ve “made that figure unique and so when (he will) portray Rambo (he doesn’t) want to take anything away from that. But at exactly the same time, (they) want to provide (their) own take. (They) don’t want to mimic it.”
The film is likely to release in 2018.
