Stallone Exits Fox's RAMBO: NEW BLOOD Series

It took a while to confirm but at least we know now that actor Sylvester Stallone is officially not attached to Fox's new efforts to develop a TV series inspired by the Rambo movie franchise. Deadline reports as of Monday that Stallone, who was last said to possibly repirise role in Rambo: New Blood, is stepping back from the project entirely, but wishing its team well in the process.

The show would have focused on Rambo's iconic character, spawned from David Morell's 1972 novel and the film series that followed through 2008, and his relationship with his son, J.R., an ex-Navy seal. The Fugitive and Die Hard scribe Jeb Stuart is tapped to pen the series with eOne and Millenium advancing the series while the long-awaited "No Country For Old Men-toned" Rambo V remains in limbo.

However, with Stallone still attached to the development of an Expendables TV series based on the recent trilogy, the question remains as to whether or not this will leave room on his plate for a fifth Rambo film if it's still an option. We're sure to find out soon enough, though Stallone is currently enjoying the prospects now lining up for his newest film, Creed, now in theaters with Michael B. Jordan starring.

Stay tuned.
