A week after the release of the movie "Creed: Rocky's Legacy", which is considered a sequel to the famous franchise, in the US, Fox announced its intention to movie a television reboot of another famous franchise featuring Sylvester Stallone - "Rambo". This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
The network is teaming up with feature-length star Sylvester Stallone to create a potential TV series, "Rambo: New Blood," based on the franchise's movies. Stallone is serving as an executive producer at the time of writing and it is not yet known if he will have a role in a drama that explores Rambo's relationship with his son.
Jeb Stewart ("Die Hard") wrote the script, which will be marketed by Entertainment One and Millennium Films. The project will focus on Rambo and his son Jay Er, a former Marine. Rambo will be the central character of the potential series, unlike Eddie Murphy's hero Axel Fowley, about whose son the CBS television series "Beverly Hills Cop" was movieed, and in which Murphy appeared only sporadically.
eOne and NuImage / Millennium Films signed a deal to develop and co-produce the series two years ago. At that time, according to company representatives, they were negotiating with Stallone about his participation in the project as an actor and as part of a creative team. Stallone representatives then said that the actor did not intend to return to the role of John Rambo.
