Title: Sylvester Stallone

IMO, excluding Rocky, he sucks.

Stallone introduces new health food line
Source: EW

''Yo, Adrian, bring me some pudding!'' OK, Rocky Balboa never said that, but he might have, had he gone to a GNC store to buy Sylvester Stallone's new line of nutrition products, called ''Instone.'' At a press conference on Wednesday at New York's Planet Hollywood restaurant, Reuters reports, the star of the ''Rocky'' and ''Rambo'' franchises announced the introduction of his new health food products, including energy capsules, protein shakes, and a low-carb pudding called ''Intake Go.'' ''I feel young again,'' the 57-year-old actor said while eating some of the pudding. ''I wish my mother had made me this.''

Stallone said he was inspired to create the Instone products (which will be available exclusively at GNC outlets starting next month) seven years ago, when he was taking off the 44 pounds he'd gained to play a slow-moving sheriff in ''Copland.'' The shakes will come with a fitness DVD starring Stallone. Most of the products, however, will be suitable for anybody, not just bodybuilders and dieters, he said. ''I wake up in the morning and I literally make this for my kids because they enjoy it.''

Stallone is in New York scouring gyms for amateur boxers to star in his upcoming reality competition, ''The Contender,'' due next season on NBC. No word on whether the boxers will be filmed drinking Instone shakes, or whether the pudding will come in a Rocky Road flavor.

John Rambo's officially readying for a fifth mission.

Nu Image/Millennium Films has greenlit the franchise's fifth installment, with Sylvester Stallone starring and directing, repeating his duties from 2008's "Rambo."

The upcoming project's storyline revolves around Rambo fighting his way through human traffickers and drug lords to rescue a young girl abducted near the U.S.-Mexico border. Production will start in the spring.

The film will be produced by Avi Lerner, Kevin King Templeton and John Thompson. Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short and Boaz Davidson will exec produce.

Stallone had indicated in interviews that a fifth Rambo was in the works. He teamed with Nu Image/Millennium on the 2008 project, which grossed $42 million domestically and $113 million overseas.

Nu Image/Millennium is in post-production on "Expendables," starring Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li and Mickey Rourke. The actioner's set for release on April 23 through Lionsgate.

Rambo first appeared in the 1982 pic "First Blood," followed in 1985 by "First Blood II" and in 1988 by "Rambo III."

Stallone Says Rambo V Won't Happen
Excl: Director says he's '99% sure'
Source: Empire Online
For a while now, there have been all sorts of rumours about Rambo V. Itís a sci-fi. No, itís a straight-up Rambo flick, where Sylvester Stalloneís one-man army takes on all-comers and shoots them into the middle of next week. No, itís this. No, itís that.

So, when we spoke to Stallone exclusively for our cover feature on The Expendables, we took the time to ask him for the definitive take on the fifth big-screen adventure of the taciturn warrior, and discovered that itís none of the above.

In fact, itís not going to happen at all.

ďI think Ramboís pretty well done. I donít think thereíll be any more. Iím about 99% sure,Ē said Stallone, which comes as something of a surprise. After all, Rambo V was considered to be something of an inevitability after the last movie, the ultra-violent Rambo, made $113 million worldwide in 2008. But The Expendables has made Sly think long and hard about his future; and Rambo doesnít feature in it.

ďI was going to do it,Ē he said. ďI said Iíd never talk about this, but with I feel that with Rocky Balboa, that character came complete circle. He went home. But for Rambo to go on another adventure might be, I think, misinterpreted as a mercenary gesture and not necessary. I donít want that to happen.

ďIím very happy with the last Burmese episode, because I didnít pull any punches on it,Ē he continued. ďI wanted it to be what civil war really is Ė rough. You canít candy coat it, and where do you go from there? So thatís [Rambo V] going to go.Ē

Stalloneís not done with Rambo completely, though. He told Empire that heís at work on a directorís cut of Rambo which will restore twelve minutes to the movie, including a surprising outburst of loquaciousness for the mumbling man of action at the movieís beginning.

ďHe does a speech at the beginning of the movie to Julie Benz where he lays out why his life has been a complete disappointment and why war is natural and peace is an accident,Ē added Stallone. ďAnd how he just feels that his life has been a waste. Itís very important to hear that and I didnít think so at the time. Iím going to go back and put in some stuff.Ē
