Stallone To Possibly Choke Some More Life Out of Rambo


Just weeks since first agreeing to reprise Rocky, then calling Bruce Willis "GREEDY AND LAZY," Sylvester Stallone's protruding veins are once again pumping as thick with hypocrisy as they are with HGH.

The insistent action star is now in talks to once again return to the Rambo franchise, and surprisingly not in the long-planned fourth First Blood sequel. Entertainment One and Nu Image are teaming to produce a Rambo television series, and Stallone is reportedly in discussing his pay to "potentially reprise his role" and provide input "on a creative level," maintaining his creative vision of killing more and more dudes as increasingly fast as possible.

"Rambo fans cover all demographics and we're confident that we'll quickly find this series a home," said eOne TV CEO John Morayniss. Added Lerner, "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."

EOne and Nu Image plan to shop the series to US and international broadcasters once it's developed, hopefully as a medical drama to finally give Rambo the mental health care he needs.
