Get Ready for Rocky 7 and Rambo 5

Sylvester Stallone has signed a deal with Nu Image/Millennium Films to direct and star in two big action films which might be "Rocky 7" and "Rambo 5."

No, seriously. I'm not making this up. There is a possibility of seeing both a 61 year old prize fighter and an M-50 toting mercenary.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Stallone will team up once-again with producers Danny Dimbort, Avi Lerner and Trevor Short to produce the films. There are several scripts being considered and nothing is completly set in stone yet, but it does appear that its a lucrative deal for Sly who will also produce the films.

In all honesty, it's fantastic that he's fit enough to make actions movies as challenging as these are, and at 61, Stallone is showing the world that age doesn't mean sitting in a rocker drooling on yourself... but haven't we had enough of Rocky and Rambo for one lifetime? Can't we just let them end and be done with it?

Does Hollywood absolutely HAVE to wring every last cent out of these cheezy, jingoistic, franchises until we are all strangled into submission with the American flag shoved down our throats?
