Sylvester Stallone has teased a new picture from the production set of “Rambo 5.” The former soldier still has a thing for large knifes, and will use one in the upcoming film as well. Fans of the franchise will be familiar with the use of large knives in the four previous movies.

The new picture [see below] shows Stallone’s muscular hand grasping a big knife. The knife apparently has a name- “Heartstopper.” “Gripping the ‘Heartstopper’ ‘ ... you just don’t turn it off,’” the actor wrote in the post.

The sentence “ just don’t turn it off” is from the first “Rambo” movie, in which the Vietnam veteran argues with his former commander about the challenges of transitioning to civilian life. There was a knife in that movie too, which the former soldier used for “hunting.”

It remains to be seen who John Rambo will be hunting with the “Heartstopper.” The knife isn’t the only weapon the hero will be using in the film. Another behind-the-scenes picture that Stallone shared online [see below] shows the actor carrying a rifle, as the director sets up the scene.

In a video that Stallone released online [see below] the actor teased one of the filming locations. In the post, the actor wrote that he just finished filming a “very tough shoot.” He said that he missed his family, and hoped that all the effort will be worth it in the end.

Stallone has been practicing horse riding for the movie, and he teased a training video online [see below]. The actor practiced different things, like making the horse movie in a circle and walk backwards. “Sometimes life looks great going backwards,” he wrote.

“Rambo 5” is being directed by Adrian Grunberg. The film is set to be released sometime in 2019. The producers are yet to announce an exact release date.
