Well, it's official. Seven years after the 2008 film, Rambo, reinvigorated fans of the classic action franchise led by actor Sylvester Stallone, Deadline is now reporting that the languishing fifth film that's been in developement for some time now is indefinitely on hold. Instead, eOne will be internationally representing the developement of a TV series that's also been long in the works in the last few years and will produce along with Millenium Films.

Stallone's name is being circulated as the likely prospect of the new show titled Rambo: New Blood, marking a possible return to the character alongside an actor who will play ex-Navy SEAL, J.R., Rambo's son. Fox reportedly closed the deal with The Fugitive and Die Hard scribe Jeb Stuart tapped to pen the series two years since eOne moved with a plan to advance a series with NuImage all while a fifth film was still in the works; That film was last reported to begin filming in late 2014 with Stallone tapped to reprise his role from his own with Avi Lerner producing.

As of the middle of last month, Stallone tweeted prioritizing some movie dialogue for what sounded like another stab at Rambo V. Alas, the latest reports are a likely confirmation that a series will take precedent rather than the former. Does this mean the film won't happen altogether? Like always, time will tell for certain.

Rambo: New Blood is one of two Stallone properties currently in development for television, including The Expendables, of which a fourth film is definitely on track for production this upcoming Spring. Stallone currently stars alongside Michael B. Jordan leading the way in Ryan Coogler's Rocky saga reboot, Creed.
