‘Rambo’ Tracking Down TV Series
John Rambo soon could be shooting up television screens.
According to Variety, Entertainment One is partnering with producer Avi Lerner and Nu Image to develop a TV series based on the Rambo movie franchise. Sylvester Stallone, who starred in all four films, is reportedly in talks to be involved in the project in a creative capacity, and possibly reprise his role as the misunderstood Vietnam War veteran.
Stallone co-wrote and starred in the 1982 action film First Blood, based on David Morrell’s 1972 novel of the same name, which spawned three sequels: 1985’s Rambo: First Blood Part II, 1988’s Rambo III and 2008’s Rambo.
Entertainment One and Nu Image plan to shop the project to networks in the United States.
