Rambo (and Son!) Series in Works at Fox, Sylvester Stallone Attached

Rambo TV Series Fox Sylvester Stallone

After all these years, John Rambo is going out on patrol once more: Fox is developing a series based on the Rambo movie franchise, our sister site Deadline reports.

During Rambo‘s big screen heyday of the 1980s, Sylvester Stallone played the title character, a tortured Vietnam War POW who relies on his armed forces training when he runs afoul of sadistic law enforcement officials. In sequels, he works to rescue other POWs and to thwart dictatorships.

Stallone will executive-produce the Fox series, which will focus on the relationship between John and his adult son J.R., a former Navy Seal who does not appear in any of the four Rambo movies.

It is unclear whether Stallone will act in the TV drama. Regardless of who plays Rambo Sr., he will be a major character in the series.
