Principal photography on the fifth installment of the popular Rambo franchise began last month in Eastern Europe with the filming location doubling as movie's settings of Arizona and Mexico.

The upcoming film will reportedly see Rambo trying to live a life of peace in his native Arizona only to cross the border into Mexico after the daughter of a friend is kidnapped by cartels. Once there, the former special forces soldier will find a new ally as they take on the human traffickers together.
