Totally Unnecessary Sequel, Part XVIII

Rambo is back in business. Sylvester Stallone will reprise his role as gun-toting John Rambo in the upcoming "Rambo IV," said Ben Nedivi of Millennium Films, which is producing the project with Emmett/Furla Films.
The 59-year-old Stallone also intends to bring boxer Rocky Balboa out of retirement. He will write and direct "Rocky Balboa," the sixth film in that franchise, with shooting set to begin next year.
It's funny, because I just saw Arnold Schwarzenegger last week and was struck by how very not tall he was, and back in the heyday of these two (you know, the '80's), rumor was always that Sly was even more petite. Perhaps there is an inverse relationship between one's physical stature and one's uncontrollable ambition to do bigger, badder, more ridiculous movies. Red Sonja 2007, anyone?
