Rambo V Feat. "Sci" Stallone?

I just saw on (quoting Ain't it Cool News about a recent conversation with Sly Stallone RE: the new Rambo movie. It...might take a leap of, erm, logic. Here's what Sly had to say about it.

It is set in the Pacific Northwest. Back in the general area where we first were introduced to John. It seems that somewhere in that Area there is a U.S. Military installation that is doing experiments on elite soldiers as part of some sort of program where they're attempting to tap into that SAVAGERY that we have deeply embedded into us. The plan is create brilliantly instinctual killer soldiers that have no qualms about taking life.

I was down with the fourth movie because it seemed to work in the spirit of the series (and it was hella bloody), but this new version may take it into "Leprechaum in Space" territory. Though the series probably couldn't have jumped the shark, it's bordering on becoming this whole other thing, this weird amalgamation of crazy Ed Wood style of geniuousness. I'd still watch it, but my reservations are only in my small reserve of "good taste". Ah, but did I ever have that in the first place?
