RAMBO to implode onto the small screen
Last night the Hollywood Reporter noted that Nu Image in a partnership with Entertainment One have signed a co-pact agreement to develop Rambo into a TV series.
“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.” quoted eOne Television CEO John Morayniss on the matter.
It was said Stallone was interested in perhaps reprising the role although later he stated that he would only be involved on a creative level.
“While a television series based on the Rambo property is in development with Entertainment One and Nu Image, contrary to reports, Sylvester Stallone will certainly not reprise his role as the iconic John Rambo for the small screen.” Quoted Stallone’s press representative.
For me the success of the latest RAMBO film was due to the over top gore and a TV series would only dilute this into nothing more than a MacGuyver episode.
No word on whether this will reboot RAMBO or continue his adventures.
What film property is going to head to the small screen next?
