Rambo TV series in the works

Sylvester Stallone is looking to don the red bandana again for a TV version of Rambo .

While the actor talked up a fifth film a while back after rejuvenating the series with 2008's Rambo , The Hollywood Reporter has discovered that Entertainment One and Nu Image are developing a new TV series of Rambo , too.

Stallone is apparently in negotiations to get involved "on a creative level", and may even reprise his most famous role on the small screen.

It's doubtful that he'd be the show's star, though, especially as Stallone has talked previously about a fifth film being an opportunity to pass the torch to a muscular successor.

Either way, this sounds like a fantastic idea - who wouldn't want to tune into Rambo kicking ass every week?
