Rumors have been circulating over the past few days that Sylvester Stallone had decided to take complete control over the next Rambo sequel and direct the thing himself. Well, according to one of the film's producers, its now become somewhat official - Rambo will be directing Rambo. Previously, Stallone had been chatting up Ridley Scott and Renny Harlin to direct, but either no one wants the project or no one will be able to do it the way Rambo wants.

Perhaps this whole control complex is all Rocky Balboa's fault. Currently, Stallone is busy shooting Rocky 6, which he executive produced, wrote, directed and starred in. Could it be that things are going so well for him that he insisted he have the same deal with Rambo? While we're on the subject - why is he even making another Rambo in the first place?

Not much is being said regarding plot right now, though according to details on IMDB, the story will have something to do with a kidnapped girl and how the Vietnam vet will be forced out of hiding to go rescue her. Word on the street is that Stallone will also be writing the script for Rambo 4, however nothing is official yet. Production will begin immediately following Rocky Balboa.
