Sylvester Stallone could reprise his role as Rambo for small-screen project
Sylvester Stallone could soon be blowing stuff up and mangling people on the small screen.
The actor is in negotiations to take part in television series based on his iconic movie "Rambo," Entertainment One — which is co-developing the project — said Wednesday. Should Stallone sign on, he would be involved on a creative level, and could potentially reprise his role as Rambo.
Entertainment One is developing the project with Avi Lerner — the producer behind the 2008 film "Rambo" and the "The Expendables" movie series, which also stars Stallone — and Nu Image. Under the agreement, they will collectively develop the series and shop it to broadcasters in the U.S. and internationally.
"I'm happy to be partnering with a prolific company like Entertainment One who has a track record of creating high quality programming for their broadcast partners around the world," Lerner said. "And I'm excited by the prospect of collaborating again with my good friend Sly for an encore in this next phase of the Rambo legacy.”
