Sly won’t be in Rambo series

LOS ANGELES: Despite the production companies endeavours to get the original Rambo star on board the project, Sylvester Stallone will not feature in the series.

The star told Deadline on December 7 that he will not be involved in any capacity in the Rambo: New Blood TV series bought by Fox . The script for the new series was written by director Jeb Stuart of Die Hard fame and was to focus on Rambo’s relationship with his son. The report suggests that without Stallone’s participation, the project is unlikely to go on.

Stallone remains connected to Fox as an executive producer on another TV series in Development for the network, based on the action franchise The Expendables.
