The potential television series based on the Rambo movies would be coming to the small screen without Sylvester Stallone as the main character.

Independent studio Entertainment One and Nu Image announced on August 21 that it will develop a television series based on Rambo. The companies said they were in discussions with Stallone to be involved.

But a Stallone representative told the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday that Stallone won’t be John Rambo in the series.

“While a television series based on the Rambo property is in development with Entertainment One and Nu Image, contrary to reports, Sylvester Stallone will certainly not reprise his role as the iconic John Rambo for the small screen,” Stallone’s press representative at Rogers and Cowan said. 

There isn’t any set date for the series to start; the companies will develop the series then shop it to broadcasters around the world.
