This is nearly as silly as Sly's idea to make Rambo V as an adaptation of a sci-fi novel, Hunter or The Savage Hunt to which he's had the rights for years, and which would've seen him hunt down some sort of genetically-modified super-soldiers. I can't see any possible merit to this idea.
Pfft, TNG did it first.
I could see that as a movie, just not a Rambo movie. Hell, Stalone could be in it and it would be fine, just not a Rambo movie.
In fairness, I think Sly has had the rights for a long time and has tried to make it as a standalone movie. The studio wouldn't fund it but eventually said 'we'll give you the money if you re-tool it as a Rambo movie.' So, wanting to make it, he agreed to their terms. To his credit, when he saw the backlash from Rambo fans, he agreed that it wasn't a good idea to turn Rambo into a sci-fi series and nixed the idea.
