Variety is reporting that “Entertainment One has completed a co-development deal with Avi Lerner and Nu Image to develop and produce a TV series based on action film Rambo”.
I know Maniacs, we are in shock here too. What is even more surprising is that Rambo’s star, Sylvester Stallone is creatively involved with the series as well as in talks to reprise his role. This would mean that it would not be a a re-imagined version of David Morrell’s original character from the book “Rambo” but a continuation of the character from the film. An interesting development as those final moments of Rambo did open up the question, what does our hero do next after he finds the courage to go home?
Variety is also reporting that “Under the eOne and Nu Image deal, the partners will develop the series and shop to networks Stateside and abroad”.
Avi Lerner, who produced the Rambo pictures, will be partnering again with Stallone for the potential series.
What do you say Maniacs? Rambo the TV series?
On August 22nd, 2013, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Stallone will not reprise his role. Check out the news story here.
