Wow, and I thought calling the movie “John Rambo” was pretty awful already, but now it sounds like Lionsgate is actually thinking about calling the latest Rambo installment the Godawful sounding, “Rambo to Hell and Back”. The change in title news (rumor?) comes courtesy of Moviehole. They’ve always been right about their movie news, so I wouldn’t bet against them. Although I did check the Lionsgate site, and there was no mention of the title change. Well actually, there’s no mention of “John Rambo” on the entire site, so who knows.
The next chapter finds Rambo recruited by a group of Christian human rights missionaries to protect them against pirates, during a humanitarian aid deliver to the persecuted Karen people of Burma. After some of the missionaries are taken prisoner by sadistic Burmese soldiers, Rambo gets a second impossible job: to assemble a team of mercenaries to rescue the surviving relief workers.
John Rambo, or Rambo to Hell and Back, or whatever, kicks ass January 25, 2008.
