Sylvester Stallone’s 80s action franchise “Rambo” could be set to return to the big screen.
According to THR, Nu Image/Millennium Films is plotting a reboot of the franchise, tapping Brooks McLaren to pen the script and Ariel Vromen to direct.
Titled “Rambo: New Blood”, the new reboot would not see Stallone return as the titular Vietnam war Vet, instead a younger actor would be hired to take the lead.
Rambo was the main character in David Morrell’s 1972 novel, which was then adapted for the screen in 1982. Two sequels followed; 1985’s “Rambo: First Blood Part II” and 1988’s “Rambo III”. In 2008, Stallone resurrected the franchise for a film titled “Rambo”.
