Sylvester Stallone is back as Rambo in the fifth installment of the movie franchise – that's not news – but seeing him as a cowboy in the first pictures from the set is news indeed.

Stallone shared some photos from the first day of shooting on his Instagram account. And frankly, we haven't been this frightened since we saw him dressed in similar garb next to Dolly Parton in 1984's Rhinestone. Oh, you've forgotten that movie? Here's the trailer. You're welcome.

The movie, which is expected to be the final Rambo flick, is scheduled for a 2019 release.
