FOX has signed a deal with Sylvester Stallone to executive produce a TV based on his “Rambo” film series. “Rambo: New Blood” will be a continuation of the films, with Stallone also thought to be reprising his role as John Rambo, although not confirmed.
The show will follow Rambo and his son J.R. who is an ex-Navy Seal. The show will be written by Jeb Stuart (“Die Hard”, “The Fugitive”) and will be produced by Entertainment One and Millennium Films.
As a result of “Rambo: New Blood”, the proposed fifth entry in the film series, “Rambo: Last Blood” is on hold. A “Rambo” television series has been in development for the last couple of years, with Stallone only just becoming involved.
