LOS ANGELES: A television series based on Rambo is in development. Avi Lerner - producer of 2008’s Rambo - is attached to the project, based on David Morell’s novel First Blood and the Sylvester Stallone movie franchise. Stallone is said to be in negotiations to reprise his role of war veteran John Rambo in the series. Lerner has teamed with Entertainment One and Nu Image for the adaptation, which will be shopped to US networks and internationally. “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,” said The Expendables producer Lerner. –SN
