Rambo: New Blood Coming to Television, Rambo 5 Put on Hold
UPDATE: Sylvester Stallone will not appear in the new series, nor will he have any involvement in the series at all.
A spokesperson for Stallone said "contrary to reports, Sylvester Stallone has opted not to participate in the planned Rambo television series in any way at all."
Sylvester Stallone seems to have some mileage left in his legs. Following the part Rocky-revival, part spin-off Creed, as well as The Expendables, Fox is now working alongside the action superstar of yesteryear to bring Rambo to the small screen.
The small screen series, titled Rambo: New Blood, seems to have resulted in the shelving of a fifth big screen film, originally believed to have the title Rambo: Last Blood.
Die Hard writer Jeb Stuart is one of the leads behind the upcoming series, along with Milennium Films and eOne. Sources claim that we'll see the ageing hero in action fairly heavily, as opposed to something like Beverly Hills Cop (in which Eddie Murphy makes the occasional appearance) or Limitless.
With Creed hitting cinemas with plenty of buzz, now is the perfect time to capitalize on a Sylvester Stallone resurgence.
