Oh, that Sylvester Stallone. Rambo V has just been greenlit, and rumors have been bouncing around like decapitated heads about the storyline. Originally, Sly was said to be "fighting his way through human traffickers and drug lords to rescue a young girl abducted near the U.S.-Mexico border," according to Variety just over a week ago. (Hence the aliens. Get it?)

Well, Sly Stallone decided to go straight to Harry Knowles at Ain't It Cool News with the straight story -- in fact, he left the Head Geek a freaking voicemail, which you can listen to here. (Can you imagine waking up to a VM from him? Just sayin'.) The plot of Rambo V: The Savage Hunt, as CS points out, is very similar to a book that Sly owns the rights to: Hunter by James Byron Huggins, which seems quite popular with the author's fans over at Amazon. ("BIGFOOT ON STEROIDS WITH AN ATTITUDE TO MATCH" trumpets one review headline.) You can peep a hard-to-read scan of the plot summary at AICN, or give your eyes a break and check out the official write-up over at SciFi Squad ...
