Sylvester Stallone Dresses Like a Cowboy in First Photos From 'Rambo 5' Set
By Scott Baumgartner
Rambo is back... and he's ready for a showdown in the Wild West!
On Tuesday, Sylvester Stallone hopped on Instagram to share a few photos from the upcoming fifth installment of the action franchise centered on the beloved war hero, John Rambo.
“Tonight we start filming,” Stallone captioned a photo of himself dressed from head to toe in cowboy attire, complete with chaps and a 10-gallon hat.
In another photo posted by the Hollywood legend, he is riding a horse while wearing a poncho. “Comes a horseman wild and free,” he wrote alongside the rustic image, quoting the Gordon Lightfoot song, "Don Quixote."
Both images are from the set of Rambo 5, which just started production in Bulgaria, according to Deadline. The new film centers around Rambo’s quest to cross America’s southern border into Mexico in order to rescue a friend’s kidnapped daughter, forcing him to face-off against a violent cartel, the outlet relays.
The 72-year-old actor can next be seen in Creed II, where he’ll reprise another of his iconic characters, Rocky Balboa, in order to coach Apollo Creed’s son, Adonis (Michael B. Jordan), as he battles Ivan Drago’s (Dolph Lundgren) son, Viktor (Florian Munteanu), in the ring.
