More than thirty years since the first film was released, "Rambo" is poised to get a TV treatment. Entertainment One has teamed up with Avi Lerner's Nu Image to develop and produce a TV series based on the action movies starring Sylvester Stallone.
Sly is currently in talks to get involved in the project on a "creative level" and to potentially reprise his role as the title character. Lerner states, "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."
"The ability to fuse the big screen and the small screen through Avi's feature film expertise and eOne's domestic production capabilities and international distribution infrastructure, makes for a highly complementary partnership," eOne TV CEO John Morayniss adds. "Rambo fns cover all demographics and we're confident that we'll quickly find this series a home."
Stallone and Lerner worked together for the fourth Rambo film which was released in 2008. There had been plans to make the fifth installment but the project was confirmed to be on hold in 2012. Stallone and Lerner continue their partnership with "The Expendables" film franchise.
