Sylvester Stallone never let a thing like old age stop him from being Rambo, and he’s not going to let being human stop him from being in a video game either.
Reef Entertainment’s Rambo: The Video Game will feature Sylvester Stallone’s voice for an added level of authenticity to the game and character, as well as voice work for Col. Trautman as played by Richard Crenna. The actors, however, are not presently involved in the voice over process.
“STUDIOCANAL, the owners of the Rambo films, searched their extensive archives and tracked down audio reels containing the original voice recording tapes for First Blood, First Blood Part II & Rambo III,” a Reef rep said in the announcement. “These tapes provided us with the pristine vocal performances of Stallone and Crenna that we have included in the game.”
So while Stallone won’t be adding any new vocal touches to the game, at least there’s the Rambo from the past to fall back on.
