It appears to be happening. And crazier yet, there's a chance Sylvester Stallone might star.

Is this something you'd want to see? To help you decide, we've secured an exclusive excerpt from one of the proposed scripts.

INT. MILITARY BRIEFING ROOM. DAY.

Rambo is sitting at a desk, in his dirty outdoor survival gear. A MILITARY GUY walks in and sits down facing him.

MILITARY GUY
So, Rambo...remember last week, when we promised we only needed you for one last job?

RAMBO
Yeah.

MILITARY GUY
Yeah, here's the thing...We have one more job that we really, really need you for.

RAMBO
Send someone else.

MILITARY GUY
We did. They all died. That's been happening a lot lately for some reason.

RAMBO
No more. I'm done.

MILITARY GUY
Okay, look, I wasn't going to say this, but...they have your best friend.

RAMBO
My best friend died two weeks ago.

MILITARY GUY
No, no, your other best friend.

RAMBO
He died last week.

MILITARY GUY
I mean the one who's left!

RAMBO
What is it with all my friends, getting captured like that each week?

MILITARY GUY
Errrr...Pure coincidence! Anyway, we need you back for this one last job.

RAMBO
After this, I'm through, I'm done, you understand? No more!

MILITARY GUY
You sure about that?

RAMBO
Yeah. Wait...where am I? What am I doing here again?

MILITARY GUY
Oh, thank god for the effects of steroids on short-term memory.

RAMBO
Huh?

MILITARY GUY
Nothing!

I'm down as long as it has General Warhawk, Dr. Hyde and that Centaur thing in the image above.
