Yes, you heard it right… Rambo is going Bollywood!
Tom Cruise picture ‘Knight And Day’ Director Siddharth Anand, promises high octane action in his up and coming remake of the 1982 classic ‘First Blood’ which originally starred the GOD, Sylvester Stallone (like we really needed to tell you that?!)
well no Stallone this time, instead, donning the classic headband, ripped abs and ridiculously high caliber fire power is martial arts expert Tiger Shroff and I think we can all agree that he defiantly looks the part!
Stallone ain’t even mad either, he has actually given this first look the ‘SLY’ seal of approval!
What more could Tiger Shroff ask for?!
So currently, this is what we know about the story line…
‘The last surviving member of an elite covert unit of the Indian Armed forces returns home to discover a war waging in his own land. Forced into the dangerous jungles and frozen mountains of the Himalayas, he unleashes mayhem and destruction, becoming the unstoppable machine he was trained to be.’
Wow… that actually sounds pretty good!? And lets face it, us westerners have been remaking every successful foreign property we could get our grubby little hands on for years, so it was only a matter of time before one of these countries fought fire with fight…. Rambo M60 ‘ARRRRGGHHHHHH!!!!!’ style…
Also, the killing doesnt stop there… oh no!
This remake is actually part of a five-picture deal that production company Original Entertainment made with Millennium Films all the way back in 2013 for Bollywood remakes of a bunch of classic action movies including the Indian Expendables?!
RAMBO is set to start filming in February 2018…. and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t 100000 percent going to be checking it out!
In the mean time… have a look at Turkish Rambo and thank me later ;)
