Written by David Morrel, First blood is a 1972 novel whose film adaptation came a decade later, starring Sylvester Stallone in the title role. History brought us closer to Rambo, a Vietnam War veteran waging an individual war against a small town sheriff and his deputies.
The success of the feature film established Stallone’s image as a star in Hollywood and allowed a whole franchise to be created around his character. Now, according to Screen Rant, Quentin Tarantino spoke with the podcast The big picture, where he admitted that he would like to bring that written work back to the big screen.
“If I just wanted to make a good movie that I knew would be good, I would take David Morrell’s novel First Blood and make the novel (sic). Not the movie that was made with First blood. I would adapt the novel. And Kurt Russell would play the sheriff, and (Adam Driver) would play Rambo”, Said the acclaimed filmmaker.
“Every time I read it, the dialogue is so fantastic in David Morrell’s novel that you’re reading it out loud. It would be very good. But now I want to do more than that. But if I was about to make a good movie, that would be it “added.
Tarantino’s comments revolve around the changes that the literary text underwent as it was released in theaters, the end of which was the most drastic aspect of variation. Specifically, the book concluded with the death of Rambo, while – despite the fact that it was recorded that way – the tape showed that the protagonist survived, a fact that allowed the development of future sequels.
