Sorry folks. This is not an April Fool’s joke. This is a film that is actually happening. Bollywood actor and martial artist Tiger Shroff, who appeared in the somewhat controversial Baaghi and the superhero film A Flying Jatt, will play Rambo…yes, THAT Rambo!

The film is the first of a deal in which India-based Original Entertainment were given rights to do five Bollywood remakes of some of Millennium Films’ action films such as this as well as The Expenadables16 Blocks, 88 Minutes, and Brooklyn’s Finest. The poster art and news were announced at the Cannes Film Festival.

Taking the basis of First Blood but switching the action to Kashmir and the Himalayan mountains, Shroff will play Rambo, the last surviving member of an elite covert unit of the Indian Armed forces who returns home to discover a war waging in his own land. Forced into the dangerous jungles and frozen mountains of the Himalayas, he unleashes mayhem and destruction, becoming the unstoppable machine he was trained to be.

Stallone played the iconic role from 1982 to 2008 in four films. Stallone took to Instagram to give his thoughts on the remake:

I read recently they are remaking Rambo in India !! .. Great character.. hope they don't wreck it .
