Details about the title of “Rambo 5” and details about a major character in the film have surfaced online. The plot of the film will focus on the former soldier taking on a Mexican cartel after they kidnap a few local girls for sex trafficking.

John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) will not be alone in his fight in the upcoming movie. Just like how he had help in “First Blood Part II,” he will team up with a journalist in the next film.

Co Bao (Julia Nickson) was a Vietnamese contact for John in the 1985 sequel. The character was also a love interest for the soldier. According to a report by GeeksWorldWide, there’s going to be a character just like Co in the next film.

Carmen Delgado is a no-nonsense Latina soldier turned journalist. She will be following the story of the kidnapped girls, and will force her way into teaming up with Rambo, who will be hell-bent on getting the girls back to safety. Her help should prove useful because she has intimate knowledge of the how the Mexican cartel works.

The journalist has a personal motivation to go after the cartel because her sister was also kidnapped a year before the events in the film.

The similarity with “First Blood Part II “ doesn’t end there. The title of the upcoming movie is reported to be “Rambo 5: Last Blood.” The hero will be living a peaceful life in a ranch when the girls get kidnapped, and this will force him to come out of retirement. The name of the Mexican cartel has been revealed to be El Corazón.

Actress Jessica Vargas is reportedly trying to be cast as the journalist in the film. A few of her audition tapes have also leaked online.

Filming of “Rambo 5” is expected to begin sometime next month. The filming locations include the Spanish Canary Islands and Bulgaria.
