It’s 2008 Rambo it’s not much can describe as “a good time at the movies.” It’s not “cool,” and it doesn’t have “movement”. What has them hands blown in the wind, children burned to death, and enough pipes to do a jealous MacGruber-like master. Still, to say the least The Hollywood ReporterAn interesting new interview with Stallone, the third hyper-violent sequel is what Stallone considers “the best film”.

“The one film I’m most proud of – it’s the best film I’ve ever made because it’s the most realistic Rambo IVfacing Burma, where they had a civil war for 67 years,” Stallone said The Hollywood Reporter. But I got angry because that movie is violent. And it’s violent. It’s scary. They are children who are burned alive. That’s what makes civil war worse than anything else: It’s your neighbor, suddenly, that kills. I was really excited about that film, and I didn’t think it would ever make it to the theaters. I thought, ‘They’re never going to show this.'”

While Stallone was happy to wait more than two decades for the sequel to go Rambo III, the studio wanted to make one as soon as possible and was willing to pay through the nose for it. Stallone said whe was first asked about himself Rambo IVdecided to turn his big payday, to the song 34 million dollars.

The Hollywood Reporter: What’s the most you’ve ever been paid for a role?

Stallone: I am 34.

THR: He turned down $34 million?! Which film?

SS: We were doing Rambo III. We thought it would be a big hit – this was before it came out. And I got paid a lot of money for it. Then they go, “We want Rambo IV.” Here it is: Pay or play, 34.” I went, “Let’s not jump the gun here…”

THR: And that’s in the 1980s. [Factoring inflation, $34 million would now be approximately $85 million].

SS: For real. That’s not a game. Oh boy, what a fool. Now I think about that and…wow.

Perhaps it was to reduce the rich amount of money that led Stallone to focus more on his competition with co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger, unwittingly destroying the world to endure. Belong to! Or My Mother Will Shoot in 1992.Belong to! Or My Mother Will Shoot it had to be Throw Mom on the Train and mothering as the worst job,” Stallone said. “Instead, you hire the best woman in Hollywood, Estelle Getty, who wants to be your mother. That’s it! Also, I had heard that Schwarzenegger was going to make that movie, and I said, ‘I’ll beat him to it.’ I think he set me up.” Schwarzenegger confirmed the story, telling A reporter that the story is “100% true.”

“In those days, we did all kinds of crazy things to win our competition,” he said The keeper said the star. “Fortunately for us and everyone else, today, we support each other. Thank God, because we certainly won’t need another one.” Belong to! Or My Mother Will Shoot.”

Unfortunately for Arnold, by simply extracting the title of the filmcompletely 10-part Netflix series based on the background of Stallone’s character Joe Bomowski starring Liam Hemsworth it was possible green light, produced, and forgotten.
