‘Rambo’ TV series in the works
 
From deadline.com

Quote:

Entertainment One has teamed with with Avi Lerner and his Nu Image to develop and produce a television series based on the hugely successful Rambo feature franchise. According to the companies, Sylvester Stallone is in negotiations to be involved with the project on a creative level as well as potentially reprise his role as the original Rambo. EOne and Nu Image plan to develop the series and shop it to broadcasters in the U.S. and internationally.
This really needs to be on cable. It's too violent to be properly done on say NBC or one of the other networks.

Oi Vey.

Why now?

And don't call it "Son of Rambo", please.

Or Rambo's First Bloodkin.

If it isn't about his son, the only other thing I can think of is the show be some kind of memoir and Sly is the narrator. Recasting is perfectly fine, (Milo?) but you can't really pull a Nimoy with time travel.

Otherwise, it they try to skirt the issue like they did with Jason Bourne or use "Rambo" as some kind of title would probably fail.

All in all, been a big Rambo fan (Even Rambo III.) since I was a kid. I'll probably tune in.

Does Rambo make sense without the Vietnam connection? Or do we just want to pretend First Blood doesn't exist anymore?

^ But then the entire point of Rambo vanishes. :confused:

There is a point to Rambo? ;)

They will probably have Rambo 2.0 fight in the mountains of Afghanistan.

For son of Rambo he's not exactly James Bond with the ladies. He's crazy drifted guy in Rambo, his love interest in Rambo II dies and in Rambo III he's with the Taliban so no love interest there.

If you give him a son from pre-Vietnam that's someone in their 40s. He did return to the US at the end of Rambo IV so maybe he found something out about his past then. Hell he's old enough to have a grandson who could be in the military.

Maybe in the post-Don't Ask Don't Tell world his son could be "Rainbo" and fight against prejudice and sexual harassment in the military.

Rambo is so '80s. If they wanted to do a war show, I'd much rather see something original than rehashing an old film.

:rommie: Kudos for having the good taste not to name him "Rambutt". :guffaw:

All-canine version would be Rambone.

This is a very silly idea.

That could also be a gay version. ;)

Did you watch First Blood? Or read the book it's based on?

There was a point to Rambo...then they made First Blood, Part II...

Yeah First Blood is actually a very different film, hell he only kills one person in it and you could almost say that was accidental (ish. From my recollection I'd argue Rambo wasn't trying to kill, just force the chopper to veer off)
